Vivian’s View From Here: Can You See The Difference?

Happy Sunday, peeps and pets!

Vivian K. Perry here, sharing with all of you lovelies some new photos of moi. I posed for the first two back in 2012:

Look at me!

A force to be reckoned with at 5 years old

Zoom ahead ten years to the present:

In my fifteenth year, do you think . . .

. . . I’m still pretty?

I can’t see the difference. Can you see the difference?

Not much has changed for me in the past decade—aside from the devastation of losing my sweet sister Maisie two years ago.

As a mature feline (not gonna use the word old!), I still lead quite an active life. I go outdoors several times a day. I eat both wet and dry cat food, which Jennifer thinks helps keep my fur nice and soft. I’m an exceptionally clean creature and a fastidious groomer. And I get plenty of love and attention from both my staff.

The one thing that has changed a bit are the length and number of my naps.

Beauty sleep is a must!

Yes, there’s no denying I’m a cat “of a certain age.” But when you are healthy and enjoying your days in a relaxed, wholesome, loving environment, life is a joy. In some ways, I’m still growing: in my experience, my wisdom, an ever-growing collection of memories, and my “kitty” vocabulary!

Perhaps some of you (and that includes my human friends and followers) can relate.

Hey, pet peers,
any of you enter your senior years yet?
Are you enjoying your elder status?

“The great thing about getting older is that
you don’t lose all the other ages you’ve been.”

  1. Vivian, once a beauty, always a beauty–especially for you. Senior cats are the best! I just accepted two senior cats from a family member to add to my group of 3 seniors and 1 non-senior. Didn’t expect that, didn’t look for it, but they are such beautiful sweethearts. Please send them good purr vibes, Vivian!

  2. Naps that you resisted when you were 5 (in human years) come back to you 70 years later and are most welcome, Miss V ! Glad to see you, as always !

  3. Vivian–you are a treasure! And you don’t look a day over 5! How does that even happen?! 😸 Back in March, the two outdoor kitties, White Paws and Nugget, became indoor kitties and they love it! Does your staff brush you, Miss Viv? These two kitties have a morning routine for me: after breakfast, I must take my coffee into the living room, sit in a certain chair by the window, and brush each one of these two. They have me so well trained!
