Elsie is a 16 year old, deaf, semi-feral cat. She was originally part of a Trap/Neuter/Release effort, but because she was deaf, couldn't be released after her spay. She has lived with us for many years and is now nearing the end as a result of kidney failure. Rosie is almost constantly by her side. The devotion and love between bonded cats is a remarkable and beautiful thing.
A cat has absolute emotional honesty: human beings, for one reason or another, hide their feelings, but a cat does not.
