She was 19 years old and that's the equivalent of mid 90s for a Siamese cat. She was an old lady when we lost her today.
Her sister Margot, from the same litter, is now the only reigning cat in the house. She is just as old, but not quite as frail as Minerva had become.
It was a full and long life for a cherished and pampered cat.
So sad, especially for Jim. He got to say goodbye and see her off, and will miss her a lot. I will too.
