Got my cat some of that tasty, tasty high-calorie food from the vet and she loved it just as much as she did before. Almost knocked the bowl out of my hand when she caught the scent.

Sadly, I can't afford to feed her that all the time--it's three bucks a can. So it's back to Blue Buffalo Healthy Gourmet for her. I'll get the super-rich stuff as a treat or when her appetite is sloping off a bit.

She's still truckin' along. A little more vocal, a little more stiff, but still very sweet and aggressively affectionate, aka "I LOVE YOU GOD DAMMIT" aka "help I'm trapped under a kitty". Overall still enjoying her life and that's the important part.

My fluffy fat rescue cat is just about to reach 15. She’s been a delightful pet. I got her at 12 months old from the SPCA and she’s been with me ever since. She’s survived cross-Canada moves multiple times, and is still going strong. Other than some old-age anxiety, some arthritis, and an iris cyst (benign) in one eye, she’s in relatively good health. I’ll miss her terribly when she eventually goes. I can’t imagine her still being around at 20+ years but you never know!

Sounds like a sweet cat. And yeah, you never know! I figured that my cat might have a shorter lifespan because she was overweight when she was younger, but she outlived the other two and is still going! I think at this point it's genetics and sheer will. :lol:

Other senior cat awesomeness: two friends of mine moved into a place that allowed pets, and were totally stoked to adopt their own cat. They wound up adopting a 16 year old Siamese mix male, and he is the bomb. He didn't hide or freak out when they brought him home...just wandered through the apartment checking things out and purring. He'd come back and headbutt one human or the other, then go back to exploring and purring! Once he'd seen the whole place he settled right in. I told them he's old enough and been around the block enough that he knew home when he saw it. He knew he was home and that things would be different than before, but still good.

He's very sweet and people-oriented. They tried some toys, but he's not interested. He must be retired, like my cat.
