Anyone Up For A Game O’ Pounce?

Trisha G. says: “My 16+ year old kitten Iris is always up for a game of pounce! I got her at the Animal Rescue League of Boston April 15 (tax day) 1997 and the name seemed to fit the day.” (Geddit? Iris = I.R.S.)




  1. She looks fierce!!

  3. She really doesn’t look like 16 at all 🙂 Such a kitten! I like her pink nose. So cute 🙂 It’s a nice photo too, cleverly done from the floor level.
