Please indulge me in a piece of whimsy. My cat Eggy (whose picture I use) is 12 years old today. A little wheezy now but a happy beast, who spends much of his time sleeping on a cushion. That is, when he's not killing a pen. Wish him many happy returns with me. And here's a picture of what he looks like in his own mind, young and preparing for the chase of life.
