That's a huge difference - 7 or 8 years versus 8 months! But even at 12-ish, she's a senior cat now, so no wonder she's not quick to welcome Fluffy into her home with "open paws".A lot of people do think that Sapphire is older. Even when she was brought into the humane society they guessed she was 7 or 8 years old but the vet estimated around 8 months due to something with her teeth. I'll look back at pictures of her from after we got here and I see how small she was then (she weighed about 5-6 lbs when we got her and she's 12ish now.
