Daily Photo Reprise: Keeping Peaches Warm, 2009

Peaches apparently makes a great pillow.

(From 2009) She is purportedly 19 years old. She came to me four years ago and a friend of her former owner, who had died, told me Peaches was about 15. She looked entirely her age at that time, perhaps because, although people had been caring for her and her sister in her former owner’s home because the cats were familiar with it, older cats need a little more attention.

In the cold weather, Peaches tends to sleep in front of the heater vent here in my office/living room, and generously shares it with the Cuddly Kittens, now 2-1/2, who just love their older sister who is less than half the size of the smallest of them. They give her little baths, too, and try to get her to play, but Peaches is all about, food, warmth and sleep.

Peaches is a real joy as a senior foster-turned-household-member, all 5-1/2 pounds of her. I write about her now and then: Feline Faith and Understanding about Peaches’ understanding of the world; Senior Mentoring, Youth Warming Program?, a photo of Giuseppe using Peaches as a pillow on my desk from last year; I Follow My Cats Around With a Sketchpad, showing a little painting of Peaches; and Senior Pet Adoption Program, showing one of my favorite paintings of Peaches, and an offer to donate to a senior pet adoption program of your choice with the purchase of a print, and a favorite is another article about Peaches and her new retirement hobby of photography written after she had commandeered my digital camera, Area Senior Cat Finds Muse in Photography.

Peaches was as sweet as her name, and never minded being used as a pillow! Many were the benefits of those “cuddly kittens”!
