A cat, a heater and the planet.

As a cat you won't get 18 without getting a little streetwise.

In human years Droppie would be in her 80s now, so you can imagine her expecting to be treated as such.
Two years ago her health was getting worse due to kidney problems and she started to lose a lot of weigth. We tried to make her as comfortable as possible.

On the bright side: I'll have a lot of new hats to add to my shop now. Tomorrow will be photoshooting time and adding new listings.
