Do you think Tucker has aged?

In some ways, it seems to me that Tucker's "great escape" has aged him greatly. I see him sleeping somewhere and think he looks so much older than he used to. What do you think? Am I imagining things?


Come on, Mom. I still look good.
Oh yes, you do, Tucker. You'll always be handsome to us.

I think he looks great, but I understand your thinking. You know he was outside for a time, so that shapes your perspective a bit. For example, I think I baby and fret over Grizzy more than is logical ("OMG he didn't eat all his food tonight!") because he had all those health issues at first. So even though he's healthy now, I'll probably always have that little perspective.

That said, I think Tucker looks great, and it seems like he's doing wonderfully. During Christmas, he looked super and seemed very much his old self, which was awesome. So consider him not so much aged as "now he has a fun story to tell the grandkids." :)

he looks great - but we understand the worry.....

We, too, think he looks great. I don't know if that kind of stress would "age" a cat or other non-human in the way it can a human, as they're centered in the Now. Not that he wouldn't have been affected by the ordeal, greatly, just that his mind wouldn't be dwelling on it and causing him further stress and thus "aging" him, if that makes any sense.

Just my $0.02.

Me too think he look just fine :)

We'd like to see a smile because he looks a little sad to us right now...maybe that't what you are seeing! That will come soon he's still working it all out!
Purrs to our Tucker,

I can't tell myself - he just looks happy to be home to me!

If so, it's because he has great traveler adventures now under his belt. It's not an aged look, but an experienced sense. We just think he's even more handsome because of that. Purrs...

Any time we use up one of our lives, it takes it's toll, but Tucker is very resilient.

Tucker will always be adorable. I would love to look as good as he now that I'm aging. You are the cat's meowz, Tucker.

I think he might look a little wiser, but not older.

The Island Cats said...

We agree with the Katnip Lounge. That trip outside sure made him wiser. But cute as ever!

I don't think he looks different, but maybe he's acting more worldly and wise, so there's a different vibe?

Angel and Kirby said...

He has wise eyes. Maybe that is what you are seeing

I agree that he looks wiser--he gained some of the wisdom of Yoda while he was outside.

Tucker had a great adventure. It will have matured him I am sure!
