Vintage Photo: Senior Sophie

Sophie enjoys her nap.

Big fluffy Sophie lived to be 17 and barely looked any different from the day I rescued her to then. Here she has a luxurious winter sunbath on the bed, air-kneading with her big fluffy mitten paws. She would acknowledge my approach with only a little “Sophie noise”, a little kitty “hmmp!”, but not open her eyes or look in my direction. Sometimes I walked into a room and heard the Sophie noise but had to look to find her under the bed or on top of the dresser.

You may also know Sophie from her photo, “Sophie Keeps an Eye on Things”.
