Molly

I'm getting concerned about Molly.

The changes are subtle but you learn to watch for the subtleties when you are dealing with cats.

She has abandoned her usual resting spot on top of the engine stand. Instead, she has been sharing Tommy's bed for the past week. That is nothing in itself but she has also been a bit off her feed.

It's been fourteen years since she came to live with us--January 1993. Before that, she had been living in the woods for several months. I don't know how old she is but she looked a couple years old at that point, so she was probably born before 1990. She has looked ageless since she came to live with us. Even now, a person would be hard-pressed to guess her age. I know I can't.

But I worry that time is catching up to her.
