When it comes to our pets, how long they enrich our lives is an important factor. Dogs are complicated, there are a multitude of factors that help decide the average lifespan of a dog from their breed to their weight. Cats are not so complicated. Most indoor cats will live anywhere from 12 to 18 years, with the specific median age being 15.1 years.
So, yes, some cats have their lives tragically cut short, but a lot of cats live well into their twenties! Truthfully, even if they don't live as long as the world's oldest cat on record (his name was Creme Puff and according to Guinness World Records he was 38 years and 3 days old when he passed away.)
Celebrating birthdays is something us pet-parents love to do for our "fur-babies," and each milestone is worthy, but today we really want to celebrate the senior cats, breaking the mold, and enriching the lives of humans for decades.
She doesn't look a day over 12.
She looks like she's rough-tough-stuff, all balled up into sweet, cozy goodness.
Hank, you're purr-fect.
Marceline, you're a divine vision.
Quiet, serene... Abby is 22 years of love.
This is how you celebrate in style.
Jane is clearly still over-flowing with the spunk of her youth.
Who is truly lucky? Carrot, or the humans who have loved him for 18 years?
Definitely over 20, but how much? No clue. No worries, she's purr-fect in every way.
20 years of glorious ruling the house!
