Poor Mashka really doesn't get much airtime. We got her in January of 1995 when she was about 3-1/2 years old, which makes her almost 15 now! She is happy old cat, and gets cuddlier and more demanding every year. It took us a very long time to draw her out of her shell, but she is QUEEN of the household now! Here she is getting some quality belly-time with her Daddy, who chose her because she was the only cat at the Toronto Humane Society not sleeping in her litterbox.
Gordon figured that was a sign of intelligence!
