Elderly Cat

Webcomic artist Alison Wilgus (previously at Neatorama) drew a tribute to her elderly cat, Julien Bashir. Julien is 22 years old, which is extremely old for a cat. It’s pretty straightforward, because like all creatures, Julien has his own personality and his own individual charms, habits, foibles, and challenges. This is just one panel of Julien’s life story; the rest is at Wilgus’ site. The way she simply appreciates him for who he is will make you want to hug your own kitty. -via Metafilter

Our oldest cat died at 23, so I feel for this. She was so battered that the kids called her the zombie cat - she looked like she'd been buried and dug up several times. She spent all day on a terrarium heatpad, except when forced out for a pee by hydraulic pressure.
Occasionally she'd swap the heatpad for a lap. Shrimp couldn't get onto the settee without us leaving a cushion on the floor for her to use as steps.
