Thread Name: BS: Life Expectancy in Cats
Subject: RE: BS: Life Expectancy in Cats
We've had several oldies in our family. My son's oldest had to be put down last year and she was well into her twenties. I've had Siamese which made to their late teens. All of the ones I've had have all been indoor cats with an enclosed cat run since 1983 when we left the Wyoming prairie for busy streets of New England.

The two we have right now are a Siamese and a tabby, both about 15. The tabby shows a little age, but has no problem romping around when he feels like it. The Siamese is a big boy, too, and shows no signs of being anything but a young cat.

Bluesman, when the time comes, you might find some comfort in the postings of THIS OLD THREAD. We have a long history at Mudcat of supporting one another through the losses of our furpersons.

May we know the name of your kitty? I'd like to send her and you some hugs.:-)
