Flossie is born in 1995. She lives in Merseyside. She lives with other kittens on the street. A woman feels sorry for Flossie. She takes her home. They live together for 10 years. The owner dies.

Flossie lives with another person from the family. They live together for 14 years. This woman dies.

Flossie moves to a special place for cats. These people can care for old cats. Flossie can’t hear. She can’t see well. She is very friendly. She still likes to learn new things.
