The Thinking Ruby – 2015 © Colehaus Cats

So I was thinking… I’ve been here for two years now, though it feels like I’ve been here a whole lot longer. Here’s the part that always trips me up… those two years are in people years while two years in people years are really eight or nine years in cat years. So technically, I’ve been here sixteen-to-eighteen cat years, plus my age which as a mature lady, I’m not going to indulge, but I’ll say that puts me somewhere in the neighborhood of ninety-plus years old.

Really? Wait, math is involved there and well, I don’t do math. Therefore, I might as well be four years old! Yeah, I like that, and I’m glad I have time to think about such things.

  1. We like the idea of four compared to ninety-plus too. But, our Mumsy says the sixteen to eighteen sounds pretty good to her!

  2. Ruby we thought you were younger than 4 years old – do you have any tips for us to look as good as you do?

    • Thank you for asking, Hannah and Lucy! My tips for staying young include napping on extra soft blankies, limiting treats and direct sunlight, and using mind power. I’m not ready to get old so I’m just not going to! BTW, I’m between twelve and thirteen years old this year. Maybe even older! That’s a secret.

  3. Ruby, glad you figured all that out. You are so lucky to have such a good home. You all have a great day.

  4. You are so pretty, Ruby.
    Mom saw a table online for converting cat people years into cat years (or is it vice versa?) and it wasn’t just multiplying by 8 or nine. The multiplication factor changed over the years. She will try and find the link.

  5. Ruby dear I’m right there with you. I’ll be 13 this year.

  19. You are looking good Ruby, and that is what matters.

  20. If you’re young at heart, that’s what really matters, Ruby.

  22. Ruby, I think numbers only matter when they relate to how many times you get to eat in any given day.
