Considering she's a fairly lazy pudding of a cat who could do with losing a pound or two of kibble (who couldn't?!) she's doing well for 13+. You'd not know she's had her thyroids removed. She's still a pretty (not so) small cat with semi-long hair (nice light fluffy striped fur that floats everywhere) an apricot evening gown and black gloves. And yes, she still does cute all too well.
