What I Got for Christmas

Another year with my little buddy.
A year ago I really believed Sinbad would not be with me much longer.  
He continues to do well thanks to medication and special food.

He does a lot of this these days.  I wish I could.

I watch very little television.  But when I do...

Yeah, that's about how interesting TV is these days.

Now we will work on another year together.  
Wish us luck.

  1. Old cats like to sleep a lot, just like humans during the winter times:) I am glad Sinbad is still with you and although fragile he looks very good with his stunning tail.

  4. He's looking beautiful. The special food is helping Daisey also. She's on no medication though. Sleeping a lot is what cats do. Here's hoping you get another year and more with your sweet buddy. Wishing you all a wonderful year ahead.

  6. We have a 20 year old neutered male cat, Loki. I'm surprised every morning to find him still breathing. He likes to eat the dog 's food and basically just hang around the house. I made him a little shelter right next to the front door.

  9. Oh, I do hope you get another year with your boy...I had one for 17 years that was really special. His ghost haunted both Roger and me for a few years. One night a couple years after he was gone, we were in bed and we both 'felt' him jump in bed..we each scooted to the edge and Roger raised the cover to let him under....he only slept in the middle. We had not been talking about him or anything near that time.

  13. Good to hear that the old fur ball is doing well - he seems to be about as active as mine!

    Hope the New Year is starting well.

  14. Your Sinbad and our poor Jack. All he does is sleep. He seems to be going blind and he sleeps so soundly hardly anything will awaken him. Now, Trouble is another thing. That kitty is so spoiled by Buddy he will live to be 100.Loved the pictures. They really brought your baby to like. I am happy he is doing better and my wish for the new year is that he continues to hold his own, stay well, and continue to bring you the joy he has brought you thru the years.
