Ella, the younger cat, adores her special friend, the elderly cat named Pip. Each is a close friend to me, but the friendship they share with each other is touching to witness.
As can be seen in these photos, the much younger Ella dotes on the tabby-and-white Pip, who is 17 years old. She washes him and snuggles with him and helps keep him warm. Sometimes her attention is a bit overwhelming for the older cat, but the fondness is returned.
Sadly, as Pip ages some of his ailments are catching up with him. As we care for him, Ella too treasures him with love and affection.
