My kitty, Belle is 17 years old today. That's really old for a cat. She is probably one of the oldest pets I've ever had. My other cat, CJ only lived to be 14 and he seemed ancient at the time. This isn't a current picture of Belle. This one was taken sometime around 2007. Sadly, Belle's age has really caught up with her and she's not doing too well right now. She's barely eating and is getting very, very skinny. I think her little body is just shutting down, to be honest. I hate seeing her like this, but I know there's no point taking her in right now. I know what any vet would say. I'm just trying to keep her comfortable. She's been sleeping behind the chair in my bedroom a lot these days. It breaks my heart to see her like this because I feel her days are few. As much as I want to be happy about it being her birthday, my heart aches for her. Happy Birthday to my Little Old Lady!
Happy Birthday to Belle; big hugs to you xReplyDelete
My mom's cat was 14 when she started eating a lot less and got really skinny. I told my parents she needed to be put to sleep,and when the vets saw her,they agreed it was the kindest thing to do. They found a lump on her neck which was most likely cancer. Not saying Belle has cancer,but it's a possibility.ReplyDelete

Sad to hear about Belle..ReplyDelete
Troubles was 18 when he passed... I got him in Kindergarten and he lived to see me graduate college... He died shortly after...
I am happy we immortalized her in Lemur Troops...
Here's to Belle! I know how hard it is...And...she has lived a long a good life, been a good pet, a good friend. May she go easy into that final journey. She will be met on the other side by CJ, Happy and Kitty Puss.ReplyDelete
Hard to loose a friend. my collie died at eighteen thats 15 yers ago and I still think of her each day and all the good times we had I never had the heart to take another dog because of that heartache in loosing her,ReplyDelete

that is very old for a cat. My parents have one that is 20 years old and I swear they have poor Bob hooked up to life support. Their vet bills are insane, and he keeps pulling through. It is nice to have a pet live so long, though.ReplyDelete
Wow! She has had a good, long life! You must be taking very good care of her.ReplyDelete
I'm so amazed how old she is. She must be a well loved, well cared for cat.ReplyDelete
