I know what you mean...My Sabrina we rescued about 9 years, she shows her age too....I hate them getting old and dread it. I love my critters so much and they treat me better than people! Great capture....Hope she stays well! #8806635

What a sweetheart your Tess looks to be, Pamela and I agree, if there was any fairness in the world, they would live as long as we do. Great portrait! (I read on one of your comments to Monnie that you're from Austintown...I was born and raised in Youngstown!) #8808374
