The undefeatable furball

Dec 22

Maybe you saw Caffrey’s anniversary blog post last year. I just feel, as he gets older, every year is a big milestone. Each morning when he wakes up next to me, seemingly happy and healthy, I give thanks for him.

Anyone who ever meets him, can’t believe his age. I’ll never know for sure but in December 1997, he was estimated 18 months which makes him around 17 years old. Caffrey looks so youthful, maybe he drinks from a secret fountain somewhere and I wanna know where that is. He sleeps a bit more than in his teenage years but he hasn’t lost his playful nature and still jumps up his beloved windowsills effortlessly.

We’ve had our fair share of little health scares over the years but he always fights back strong. He has been referred to as “the undefeatable fur ball” & “resilient little bugger”.

_0808_0806Thank you friends, who always inquire about him. Some of you aren’t even cat lovers but  know how much the little fur ball means to me.

Thank you, Lyndon and everyone at Animal Ark who looks after him. We couldn’t wish for better care.

Thank you Lord, for placing Caffrey at my door all those years ago and for each day of his precious life.

    Awwwh ♥ I know you are half kidding and half serious when you say you are really visiting Caffrey, rather than me! He is the first thing you look out for and when you find him, you wake him up!!

    AND – I will do bag searches from now on!
