All creatures great and small

This pic is from 2004, not long before Fuji's last illness. Fuji was 20 years old and getting to look a little scraggly. Sassy was just turning 4.

We acquired Fuji as a little kitten from the neighbors in 1984. The dad wanted to throw him out and the kids were neglecting him; their grandmother asked us if we could take Fuji with us when we moved, even though we already had two cats. He went on to become the grand old cat of the house. I used to wake up with him sleeping on my pillow next to my head.
