Who has the oldest cat around here?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Merry Christmas, all.. My oldest cat, 'Fossil'.... is a 20-1/2 year old Maine Coon mix, and she's still going on and on, failing kidneys, arthritis, high blood pressure, and all.....she purrs and snuggles and still seems to love life.
It made me wonder if there are any other really old timers out there...if so, Fossil wants to wish everyone a happy snuggly holiday.

I was wondering the same thing the other day!! My mum's cat Bonnie is nearly 17 - we got him when he was just a couple of weeks old after he'd been abandoned, We had to feed him with an eye dropper, which I thought was the coolest thing having this wee thing to nurse back to health.

He's still going strong and a very healthy cat - the only thing wrong with him is he's missing a leg and is a bit slower when hopping around these days.

My oldest cat is somewhere around 17 I believe. All the rest are on the younger side. Fossil has a very apporpriate name.

Fossil sounds like a wonderful cat! It's great that she's still going strong and loving life.

My oldest, Katie, is "only" 13 1/2 and is healthy and active. I hope we have many more years together!

My parents' cat, PJ, is 18-1/2. She's convinced she's still a kitten, however.

My own two boys can't beat that, although I hope one day they will: both of them are about 3 years old.

My most beloved boy Snoopy lived until he was 20. He passed on almost 2 years ago, but he was a part of the TCS family, when he passed on.

Right now, my oldest cat is Shane. He's 9. The other 3 are all pretty young, 4 years and younger.

My oldest Lily is only 10! So she's just a youngster compared to Fossil! Its great that she's lived this long! My cat Sweetie Pie was almost 16 when she died last year.

Ox is currently 17 yrs 9 months. The vet thought he was 10 year younger. He's a beggar-loves popcorn, doritos etc... and checking out anything edible on the kitchen counter.

and a happy Snuggly day to Fossil. My Kitties are only 5 and 6, but my great aunt had a DLH that was 23 years old when it passed.

Chynna is going to be 15 years in January. It seems like yesterday that I rescued her from the bushes on a busy street.
