    Yes. He's had to have all his teeth removed due to periodontal disease and he is in mid-stage kidney disease, but he is still here. He's very loving and still very intuitive. We found him as a feral kitten hiding in some bushes. He comforted me on 9/11 when I collapsed on the bed after that horrible walk home through downtown DC and when I had a serious illness three years ago.

    Vet said in his 80s. We had a previous cat live to her 17th birthday and three others died around age 16.

    He is the champ.

    I knew someone that had a cat live to 20 and a couple to 16 or so. I currently have a 13 year old going strong. Cats can be very long lived if they are indoor cats.

    Friends of mine had a cat named Samba for as long as I could remember. She lived to be at least 23, maybe 24.
