My furbaby taking a nap

My furbaby is almost 20 yrs old. I found her by my place of work. She showed up for about 4 days in a row and I said if she comes back again I am taking her home and so I did.


I took her to a vet and had her checked for a chip, keeping my fingers crossed the whole time that there would not be one. The vet told me she was about 1 1/2 yrs old.

That was in late 1996- early 1997. She is such a sweetheart and I love her to death. I think because I have loved her so much is why she has lived so long.

Everyone says she does not look her age but then again they say the same thing about me and I am 73. My boyfriend is also a cat lover and plays with her a lot. She is still pretty perky.

Minoush.
by: Lina Mahmassani

My cat Minoush is 20 yrs. old or more. She was brought to me when she was a baby kitten. She was castrated when she was 3 months old and nearly died. She is the apple of my eye and the joy of my life. She was very attached to me. Now she sleeps most of the time. She never liked to be petted and she keeps to herself. She is shy of people.

I had one too!
by: Yvonne

I've had 2 cats live to be 20 or older. My sweet Q I adopted from the Humane Society when she was 8 years old, and she passed at 22. I had a sweet boy named Burt who lived to be 20. He went blind but he got around just fine, and Q was pretty frisky until the day she went to the bridge. I miss them both. They were very much loved!

She looks like my child Minou, who is now in heaven! She had similar markings and was a tuxedo cat also! Very cute kitty.
