Update: I’ve realized posting this picture alone is possibly misleading. The picture, taken when Susie was about six months old, is a memorial. Susie died March 7, 2018, at the age of sixteen and a half years. She lived a pretty full life: after coming to us from London in a picnic basket (followed by several days being called Bill), Susie lived in Cambridge (UK and Massachusetts), Los Angeles, Seattle, and Princeton; had illustrious cat sitters; had a book dedicated to her; appeared in the Guardian; and most of all was very greatly loved.
