The very learned ‘old’ cat in Three Wise Cats would’ve been 22 today, not unreachable for a Siamese. Sadly, Ptolemy lived only half those years. He did have some adventures, living aboard an eighteen-wheeler as its fierce Guard Cat for a number of years. And he’s still greatly missed.
But he’s doubtless waiting at the Rainbow Bridge for all of us. See ya, Ptolemy Philadephius.
Nice tribute. I had the pleasure of meeting Ptolemy.
