I’m not sure if I talked about Franny before, but my ex adopted her from a local shelter a few years ago. They told him that she was 2 years old. She was seriously abused and kind of a physical mess. After spending a few months with her and trying to put some weight on her I started to wonder what was really wrong because she refused to get fat. I took her To Dr Newman, my local Brooklyn Vet. After examining her, Dr. Newman came back to let us know that Franny was not 2 years old but approximately 16 years old. Franny was an OLD cat!
It answered everything, why she was so frail and so finicky about eating. I took it as a mission to fatten her up and have her spend her last days in style.
She is now on a regular diet of Spam, tuna, cheese and sardines. All of which suck for her health, but the only things that she’ll actually eat. She sees Dr Newman monthly and is shot up with all kinds of yummy vitamins. She also gets tons of beauty sleep and, most importantly, she rules the house.
Habibi is terrified of her. Every day is ground hog day for Habibi. He runs to play with Franny, and even though she is frail and can barely move her arthritic little joints, she just hisses at him and he cowards away.
Here he is longingly looking to play with her.
