This really is a tribute to Bernadette E. Kazmarski's cat Peaches because she is going to be 20 years old on May 1st. which in human years is 100 years. Yikes. Peaches has a wonderful portrait of her done by Bernadette and it is up for auction. The best part is that the profits go to a wonderful Foster Cat home which is in Pennsylvania
The site that tells a lot of Peaches's stories is;

Anyway, my name is Squeaky and I had to go to the bridge on Dec.23rd, 2009. But I get to write this post anyway. I lived to be almost 20 years old and had a wonderful life. I was found in a dumpster luckily and ended up at a vet's office. I was so scared that I just meowed all the time. One of the nice gals had a friend that needed an orange kitty and so my forever Mom got to adopt me. I just Squeaked, thus the name Squeaky. I did spend my whole life inside, and at the end had a couple of diseases, which were the bad thyroid and some IBD. So Mom had to give me pills twice a day for a couple of years but after the first six months we sort of came to an agreement that I would allow here to give me the pills. It was a huge battle but darn it all she did win most of the time.
This is me Squeaky taking a wonderful nap
Being an older cat means that we get lots of attention and Mom does love to bond with us which is what happens when we get so much attention. We have to watch what we eat and what we do. I myself didn't get any arthritis so I was lucky. I did lose my teeth but I kept right on eating. You know they say that cats eat most of their food whole anyway. When I was younger, people didn't know about all the no-grain food and raw food but these days, cats can have a better chance of having a healthy older life.
So Peaches, a very Happy Birthday to you and hope you live many more years. Tell Mom to give you a big hug for us. Lots of purrs coming your way too.
That portrait of Peaches is absolutely lovely!
It must be 20 year old week, as mama is featuring her Sookie on our blog tomorrow....she also lived to be 20!!!!!
We bet your Squeaky and our Sookie are playing together at the bridge......:)
Have a purrfect day and a great big hug to Marg. :)
Squeaky was so adorable and we know she'll always be missed. It's wonderful she had such a long, loving life. Our mommy had a cat named Panther who lived to be 18 before crossing the Bridge in 2007 - before we came here. She misses her to this day.
Happy birthday Peaches!
I am going to be ten years old on June 6th. So I am in the middle. Hope I can live at least five more years before I have to go to the rainbow bridge. Life is good when you are loved!
