Fuzzy people 14 (E Coast edition)

Paco, 16 years old. I remember Paco when he and Romy (now-elderly Lab mongrel) lived with brother-in-music Larry and his new wife in an upstairs apartment in an old colonial house with canted floors and skewed doors in Salem Massachusetts. By now, Paco's creaky and thin (you can feel all his ribs and he has that sunken-cheeked look old cats get), and he can't see very well and is easily spooked by sudden movements, but he's still affectionate and responsive, and can still infallibly identify a black shirt upon which his graying shedded hairs will show up most clearly. He's a nice old boy and it was nice to see him again.

Thanks to Missa Thompson for the "fuzzy people" appellation.
