Today I thought that I would try Marilyn’s Serendipitous Photo Story Prompt.
This is Tilly. I met her on Tuesday when my sister and I were browsing around Willow Court in New Norfolk. The Willow Court complex used to be the site of a hospital. Now it houses club rooms, a motel, cafe and various shops. Tilly’s home is the Willow Court Antique Centre which is appropriate because Tilly is an antique herself. She is nearly twenty years old.
When I met her she was sitting on the front steps enjoying the afternoon sun. She didn’t wish to be photographed at first and turned her head away but as I chatted with the lady from the store she decided to cooperate and posed nicely for me.
Tilly is quite spry for a cat of her age apparently but she can’t jump any more. I’m not sure what the equivalent would be in human years but I’m sure that if I were her age I wouldn’t be jumping all over the place either. She looks as if she has spent some time living rough before adopting the antique shop as her home. At least now she has food and somewhere dry to sleep.
