|This is Delyte. Our person actually misses my healthy adult cat self. From about age one through ten, when I had major surgery, I was such a big strong healthy cat, looked like a little black panther, very affectionate and my person's lap cat. Then in rapid succession the other cat died, and I got very ill and had surgery. Although I recovered from the surgery, she can no longer see me as the big healthy guy I was, and I became an old man to her. Then we got three kittens and I really was the grouchy old man, and then I got hyperthyroid. Now I look like a cat skeleton, with dull dry fur, big cataracts on my eyes, and wanting to sleep most of the time. She is amazed that I have made it this far, but she hates that I am so old.
With the other cats, who are 4 and 3, their kitten selves are still here, mostly. They are big cats now, but they mostly are still up to their kitten tricks, or even worse things they can do now that they are physically larger. We're not sure if it is because they were kittens together and are still together or what. All the other cats she had turned into dignified old cats after about a year, and then got old and decrepit later on. We now have one oldster and three huge kittens!
