There is nothing like an animal's soothing presence to bring back life to a lonely, sad person. And 90-year-old Stella will not tell you any differently.

 

 

"Grandma Stella" blew out 90 candles in November for her big birthday, and also took this occasion to celebrate 13 years of bliss with her tabby cat, Rio.

13 years ago, Stella adopted Rio when he was only a few weeks old. According to her granddaughter, Rio completely turned her grandmother's life around:

 

 

Her husband, my grand father, died three months before I was born. So she's spent 24 years without him.

Rio seems to brighten up Stella's life despite the hole that is her missing husband and is known as "the love of Stella's life", because he always knows how to make her smile.

 

 

The large tabby spends his days sleeping on her lap and purring around her feet while she knits. The two are inseparable – therefore Rio had to feature on her birthday cake!

There is no doubt that Rio is the key to Stella's longevity and is keeping her young at heart.
