“She basically weighed as much as when she was a kitten,” Charles said.
Her nails had grown long enough to wound her paws.
Charles suspects that somebody found her as a kitten and kept her all those years without bothering to check whether she had a microchip. He believes she must have become separated or run off several months ago.
But she was the same calm, gentle, sweet cat he remembered, Charles said.
Charles decided he couldn’t keep Brandy in his one-bedroom apartment with two younger cats. But Brandy is staying with his sister nearby, and he intends to visit often.
“She doesn’t have a lot of energy. But she seems very content,” Charles said. “She purrs a lot.”
He added: “She seems to be happy to have a home again.”
