    We had one cat that we had before I was a person. He died at something like 15 years old, well we put him down because he wasn't healthy.
    Then we have a dog thats about 6 years, and I think one cat is 6 or 7, and another cat is 5 or 6.

    well, you take them to the fish recyclers, and they find out the reason they're no good anymore, replace the parts, and wa la, you have a new fish.

    Steve, what were you before you were a person? :confused:

    We have a cat that is almost 14, a second cat that is 8, and a third cat that is 9 months. Then we have 4 Koi that are about 3 years old.

    The cat that is almost 14 is the oldest cat we've ever had, and he is still really healthy and active (by his standards...)

    My sister has a cat that is 18 and is still kicking around and seems pretty healthy.

    not sure..

    We have 2 "indoor" cats.."Puff-Puff" is a white angora,about 6 years old??
    The other,"Kit-Cat", we got about a year ago,he's a white shorthair..I'm guessing he's at least 6 or 7 years old,maybe more!..he weighs at least 15 lbs,but is rather slender looking..feels like a cinder block when you pick him up!.."Puff-Puff" weighs about 6 lbs,she's all fluff,and not very big.."Kit-Cat" loves to stalk ,and chase her,and has beaten her up a few times..guess he was an "only" cat in his former residence!..

    We have many outdoor strays my mother started feeding about 8 years ago..started out with 3 or 4..the other day I lost count at 18 when they were all eating the food she put out!:doah::eek1: ..they are anywhere from 6 months to 10 years old..

    I think whoever says "outdoor cats" rarely live more than 2 years old are liars!..many of theese cats have been here since they first arrived,and one mother is STILL having litters!..I wish those predictions were right..Its going to be hell to pay to get rid of those strays..I'm very suprised our "neighbors" haven't said anything to us about them yet..:crazy:
