Normally this pedometer geek writes only one 99-word (no more, no less) flash piece for the Carrot Ranch prompt, but this prompt about aging resonates with me. Here is a second contribution.
Flash is our cat. Born in April, 2001, she is now eighteen years old. What that exactly equates to in feline years, we can only guess. According to the veterinarian, she is probably a centenarian.
Despite her geriatric status, Flash has always acted like a kitten. Even now, as she deals with minor tooth infections and cloudy vision, she still manages to act like the feisty little kitten she once was, racing and meowing through the house as if hell-hounds are chasing her.
Flash has aged, but so have we. Her time is limited, but then so is ours.
