How Old Are You: Poll

Earlier, I was reading about how a feline named Phoebe is the oldest cat in the world (currently) at the ripe old age of 25!  According to the article, domestic cats live on average 12-15 years.  

My childhood kitty, Kitty (yes, her name was really Kitty), lived to be 18 years old.  

Angel Emma

Emma lived to be 18 as well.


Jewel


And my sweet Jewel is going to be 16 in June!

Have I gotten lucky with cats who tend to live longer than average or are cats living longer these days, I wonder.  

In any case, this inspired me to take a poll of our furriends.  We want to know: HOW OLD ARE YOU?

Leave us a comment by Wednesday April 16th, telling us how old you are, and we'll tabulate the results!  We'll report the results on Thursday April 17th.  Woofies as well as kitty friends are welcome to participate.  We will calculate separate results for woofies and kitties, so if you are a woofie, please let us know that in the comments, too.

We can't wait to see who is our oldest furriend and who is our youngest furriend!

  7. Binga will be 14 later this year, Boodie will be 13 in May and I will be 12 on Cat World Domination Day, June 24! None of us act like senior kitties. I think averaging things out (including cats who died youn from accidents or disease) sort of skews the longevity figure.

  12. We think cats are living longer. We're getting much better care.

    The mom had a cat before us that lived to 20 1/2, and Scooter lived to almost 17.

  15. I think I am going on 7. I may already be 7. The Vet told mommy a fib when she adopted me 2 years ago and said I was 3. But when I changed Vets, my real age was told to mom. She loves me so much it does not matter.
