One of our two 'old ladies' - the old girls were sisters, born
before our present house was built.
Died, aged 18+ years, in the late summer of 2000 and less than
a year after her sister.
The less dominant, but more active old girl, the 'Garden Cat'
because she went out for quite long walks with the four dogs.
She has been hit by cars and attacked by other dogs but was still
happy and trusting until she died, aged about 18 years.
