not sure on the age of ichi, best guess between me and the vet is 7-10 yrs. I actually found her last year outside my friends house. She was very malnourished, i could see all of her bones. No one tried to claim her, and the humane society did not want her, so I ended up keeping her. Totally glad I did though. When I brought her home, the diet change caused major diahrea and a prolapse, took her to the vet got it taken care of. Now after about 13 months of having her, well you can see above she is happy and healthy.
