FlippoHip,

You wrote, I still have the same cat (Sophie). She is like Dick Clark. She is >14 years old and still has a little kitten face. She got really grouchy though.

House cats routinely live 20+ years. I had to put my last cat down when he was 17. (I got him when he was only a year old.) He probably would have lived longer; but he was an indoor / outdoor cat that didn't do well once he was no longer healthy enough to beat up the other neighborhood cats.

My current cats are indoors; but they were rescue cats and came with health issues. Hopefully they'll both live another decade or more. And hopefully they won't cost us too much in vet care.
