TCS Oldest Living Cat~Who is it?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Lets find out which TCS cat is the oldest! None of my cats are that old yet-so I did't vote.

Someone might want to make another thread for rainbow bridge cats too!



Good luck!

Siamie is around 21 and still going strong. Thinks she wants to go outside at two a.m. to run the neighbors cats out of the yard.

Sassy will be the big 18 come August but he's proud to say he doesn't look a day over 12....

Coco is 17.3 but she has CRF,High Bp,Asthma and Arthritis.
I think Tom might have the oldest cat in the group because his cat was 21 last year.

All of my girls are under 10....Cleo is 9, Maggie is 8, and Lola is 6. My family has been very blessed with cats that have had very long lives. I hope and pray that my girls will have long lives also. My sister's cat, Missy, is about 11 or 12 now.

Bootsie (the cat we had when I was growing up) 1960-1983 (22 1/2)
Spooky (my soul mate kitty) 1983-2000 (almost 17)
Billy (my sister's cat) 1984-2002 (almost 18)
Samson (my parent's cat) 1987-2006 (19 1/2)

Mistoflees just turned 17. We got him in July of '92, and I can't remember how old he was when we got him- I think he was 6-8 weeks old (from a no-kill shelter).

Sneaky Pie's 8

All I know is it isn't us! I wonder how many of us do have the older seniors though. This will be so interesting - thanks for thinking of it!

All of mine (including the ones that live with my parents still) are under 7 currently:
Nero - 1
Katina - 1.5
Hoshi - 2
Tailpipe - 3
Caliper - 5 (has chronic UTI's and is on prescription food for life)
Chassis - 6 (has already been through sarcoma of the leg)

My family never had a cat live past 11 Our previous kitties were 10 (cancer) and 11 (kidney failure) when they passed on. Sparky was 5 when she had a blood clot paralyze her and cause her extreme pain and was put down. Hopefully the current kitties will all live much longer lives!

Rob's kitty Tigger was 15 when she left for the bridge. If she hadn't developed hyperthyroidism and fluid surrounding her lungs, I believe she would have lived MUCH longer.

My grandmother has had quite a few 17+ cats though. Her current kitty, Brini, is 6. My dad had a cat that was at least 25 when he was younger.

Our oldest cat was Holly, she was like 13-14 years old. I hope my Junebug who is going to be 9 in july will live to be in her 20s!! I didnt think cats lived that long!

My current two are 19 and 16, bloods done this year show both are in good health, so I may even get Zia into her 20's - I only adopt oldies. I have two senior fosters too, a 10.5yo and a 11/12yo.

RB (inc fosters)

Charlie - 14
Tigger - 5 (only cat I have ever adopted under the age of 10)
George - unknown but in teens
Snowy - 13/15? (there was a dispute on her age)
Blackie - 14
Pebbles - 11
Ginger - 15
Tiger - 14
Rosie - 13
Mabel - unknown but in teens
Norman - one vet said 12, one said anywhere up to 20
Jeannie - unknown but 14+
Tino - 17

Our oldest family cat was 10.

My oldest is 16, but she is a feral cat that I've cared for her entire life and lives outside. A vet told me once that if you add the term "outside" to describe a cat, add 5 years to their age. Using that rule, Indie is 21 right now. And still going strong.

Wow, I lost this thread somehow, sorry guys!

I love hearing about everyones oldies, I do not currently own an oldie - my oldest is 5yrs.

My grandmother has, what is technically my cat, who is a female simease mix (may be full blooded, was neighbors cat). She is at least 14 yrs old, I counted her as 1 yr old the day I got her. I am 20 and grew up with Isabell.

Here is my giry, with her ocean blue eyes:

My mom's cat turned 22 this year. She found her in 1987! Since she's not my cat I won't include her in the poll but I thought Princess Simmie deserved a mention

This pic was taken in April

My Alex is 21 and Sassy girl is 18. Sassy was the runt of the litter and we brought her home when she was just 6 weeks old because her mom decided not to feed her. She has always been a fat girl--18 to 20 pounds!
Alex was adopted a couple of years ago to keep Sassy happy when her brother passed away suddenly. He was in a no-kill shelter where his man-owner left him at age 18 because his new wife didn't like cats.
I also have Joey, age 3.

Tedi just turned 16 and had CRF and a heart murmur. He is doing well! I hope to get him into his 20s.
