Oh how I wish my cats would stay with me that long! The oldest
I've had was Jamie, who died at a conservative estimate of 19, as
he was an adult when he showed up in my stable. I know he ran
my stable with me for over 18 years, and I think he would have
lived a lot longer had the hay delivery man not stacked 2 weeks
worth of hay bales on top of him as he slept.
I also had Tristan,
my Himalayan, who made it to 18, and Meggie, a magnificent red
tabby lady, who died just a few months ago at 17. Sadly, most
in my circle seem to choose 15 as the age to head for The Bridge.
*sigh* I'll keep hoping for cats to reach that second decade with me.
It's good to know that so many others are lasting so long
The title is self explanatory,but what is the oldest cat you've had or known. My aunt's two cats lived to be 23 and 25 years old. My husband had two cats when we met that passed away when they were 19 years old.
