Nine lives

Meet Issy – for over 17 years this very beautiful, nervous and amazingly affectionate animal has been my constant companion… he has lived through my endless travels, been cat-sat by an array of people, hidden from all my friends, ignored most members of my family… and now as if he waited for my return I am for the first time in my adult life dealing with the very real possibility of his demise… This poor ancient cat is now suffering from recent-onset epilepsy, kidney disease and the latest – a paralysed limb that we are waiting until the morning to see if it improves… if not I will have the heart-breaking decision to let him go with dignity and grace…
