An Aged Cat.

During last fall Mr. Felix Franklin, a very aged citizen of this county, departed this life, soon to be followed by his sister, Miss Nancy B. Franklin, herself an octogenarian. This was all of the household except the cat “Dixie,” which was itself nineteen years old.  Its aged mistress was very fond of the old cat, and it was also remarkably attached to her.  Before her death she requested her friends to bury “Dixie” in her grave when it died, which was accordingly done a few days ago.  How long do cats live, as a rule?  This one was known to be nineteen years old.
