An 18-year-old cat?!!!
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.
Wow! That is one old cat! I wonder how old that is in cat years?
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.
That is amazing. You must take very good care of them.
Oh, there's a lot more than two new posters from a board migration.
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.
Vet thinks my cat has a shot at 20.
Wow, that's amazing.
Friends of mine had a cat named Samba for as long as I could remember. She lived to be at least 23, maybe 24.
