It was not my intention to post this photo of my cat Zoe, but as I opened up the program, I remembered that I had promised a friend to show her how well this cat is doing. So here you go, Frances. Zoe will be 19 years old pretty soon and as you can see, is aging quite gracefully. In fact, sometimes it's difficult to see that she is aging at all.

Wow...what a sweetheart! Gives me hope for my aging kitties.

Dear Ellen,
Thanks. She really is a great cat and used to be pretty fat, which I loved (14#). Now she weighs in at a trim 8#, and can eat everything she wants---so she lives quite the life. My last cat reached over 21 years.

We have an elderly cat in need of constant food intake (or at least food encouragement) as well. We don't know how old she is--she showed up on our doorstep 13 years ago already fully grown. She has failing kidneys and needs subcutaneous fluids every few days, but we'd do anything for her as long as she still seems comfortable and happy. Your long-lived kitties are quite a testament to the love and care they get from you.
