Furbaby Friday - Henry is 17!

click to enlarge

A kitten came to my friend's door looking for shelter. It was February in Missouri, and he was lost or abandoned. She already had several cats, and told me "Come and get this cat. It purrs real loud and it's got claws and if you don't take him I will have to take him to the shelter." I did take him. That was back in 1992, and his first vet figured he was probably born in Sep of 1991.

Henry has never been anything but a perfect cat. He brings the sweet. He just had his senior bloodwork done, and it shows no real problems. He's got arthritis, asthma, his vision is not so good anymore, and he's beginning to lose weight in spite a good appetite. He has turned into our little old man. Happy 17th birthday to Henry!
