My dear old Sabrina is now older than me in cat years. I think we currently have a competition going on who has the most grey hair. Do cats get grey hair too?
My dear old cat came into our life nearly twelve years ago along with her brother Salem. Her Mum was a ginger cat and his Dad black and white. Both our cats were black and white but when the sun shines on their fur you can see streaks of ginger. Lately though, I’ve noticed Sabby getting more and more grey hairs, even inside her ears.
She’s so old all she does is feed and sleep, often by my side, and in this photo she’s enjoying one of my hand made blankets. If I am ill she will curl up next too me, often giving me a nudge every now and then to check I’m okay.
With old age comes other stuff though. She has started forgetting to use the cat litter and doesn’t like going out, so that means a few accidents happen. She also brings up her food a lot too. So she’s not an easy cat, but I still love her.
Her brother Salem passed away in 2018 after we discovered he had cat cancer. Here’s a photo of them together when we first got them.
Last week I said I was going to take more photos, well I’m sorry but I didn’t really. Apart from the kids, the cats and the house, I’ve really nothing to take photos of. I did go out this week but we went straight to the surgery so I could have my vaccination. Maybe inspiration will strike soon.
Back to the grey hair. I was going to let my hair grow out grey. I’ve not dyed it for a long time now and it has really changed. But, the grey is not growing as much as my natural colour…oh hello natural mousey brown, I’d forgotten what colour I was! I have decided I don’t want to go grey after all. So this week I’m going to invest in a home dye and try and match my original hair colour a little more.
