Silver's Majority


A 21st birthday in any household is always an occasion for rejoicing, and the Turley household is no exception. Preparations were made for a birthday party and the photographer (us) was ordered. The greeting cards rolled in and accompanying them was a present to delight the most fastidious of recipients. In this case, the guest of honour was Silver, the pussy of Mrs Phyllis Turley, of 145 Vanguard Street. Silver had reached the almost unattainable (for cats) age of 21. His equivalent man-years is 150 or thereabouts. And he had his own birthday tin with candles, and, as can be seen here, joined in a chorus of "Happy Birthday to Me".
