Memphis is 11 years old. I think
While I was in Socotra my parents watched Memphis (my cat) and Sasha (my dog). When I went to pick them up last week Memphis hid. After hours of searching for her, I had to leave her in CT.... I spend the entire week without her. I haven't been without her in my apartment with me since I rescued her 8 years ago.
So I went home for Easter and Memphis was just laying there, in a pile of clothes on the guest bed...waiting for me.
