Q&A with patz in suffolk

warwickru813562 asked:
He is looking in wonderful condition. What lovely bright, clear eyes he has. Lovely picture too. Animal photography is so difficult I find. I breed cats and new owners want a picture of the parents and the kittens.
patz in suffolk answered:
Unfortunately, Rupert has taken a turn for the worse in the past few weeks, having had what appear to be a couple of epileptic fits. He is just a furry little bag of bones now and we are treasuring every day we still have him. It's so sad when they get old, isn't it?
