  • My turnip is 2.5
    He's a big kitty and my DD2 loves him. He's about 6 months older than her. :-)

  • Living expectancy is based on the breed, but most indoor cats live a lot longer than their peers, I had one that live to be 17, she was a maine coon cat and one day she stopped eating and only drank water and purring, she spend a week saing goodbye, all she did was pur until her last breath.

  • A have a 17 1/2 year old kitty sitting with me right now. Inside cats can get to be quite old. I also have 2 10 year old cats who still act like kittens.

  • Our boy kitties don't live as long as the girls. The boys have passed away at about 11 and 12. We currently have a girl kitty who is 17. And the longest one of my cats lived was a girl, she was 21!

  • Life expectancy also depends on genetics and how well they've been fed over the years. My aunt had a cat that lived to be about 20yrs old!
