    Contrary to what the cat food Nazis try to push, we have always fed our Cats Purina Cat Chow and Friskies or Fancy Feast canned.
    Have not had any cats with food related ailments.

    They each made it to a couple weeks shy of 23 years, which is about 108 in human years.
    Oldest domestic cat, for whom records confirmed the age, was 38 years old at time of death.
    But, such super seniors are very rare.

    Ditto on the food thing. I have posted this before. My first kitty named Kitty, I found abandoned in a tree in my front yard in NOLA. She was probably 4-6 weeks old. I was 10. She died right before my first child was born; I was 31. I don't have a pic of her on my computer; just old fashioned pics. She was a calico. I still miss her to this day.

    The 3 other kitties in my life; GrayC, Tommy, and Sox lived to be 16 on average. They were all rescues, as well. GrayC was a Christmas present to dot when she was two when we lived in Darnestown. We adopted Tom and Sox after moving to Calvert. I miss having a kitty, but it is not practical in our life, anymore. We live on a fairly busy street, now, in Olney and all the houses are right next to each other; very little acreage even though we have the biggest yard in the neighborhood. And, I have the reputation to freak out...Don't let the cat out! In Calvert, Darnestown, TX, AL, MS, GA, it was never an issue. I still worry about Daisy doodle dog getting out and running into the road, but dogs listen better than cats. And, also, now, that we moved Daisy hangs out with her bro, Toby, that my dot got from the same litter. They are so happy together.

    For you, spr.

    Miss Teia had a pretty fine day yesterday; sleeping, eating and excreting.

    When I got home from work about 6 PM, she wanted to do a front yard patrol for the first time in months.
    She stayed out about 10 minutes, inspecting her bushes and chewing on grass.

    An hour later, Buff was crying at the back door, so I went out with him.
    He was just at the base of the stairs going down to the yard (15 steps from deck to grass),
    so I just leaned on the rail to watch him.

    I looked over to the patio door, and guess who is there?
    Yep, Missy T wanting out.

    She trotted down the stairs to the grass and commenced grazing.
    In the meantime Buff had moved off so I went down to chaperone.

    We stayed out until I had a little trouble seeing kitties in the twilight.
    As usual, I had to carry Buff up.
    Miss Teia trotted up the stairs and to the door with no trouble.

    And of course, a little later, they both went "Keck, keck, Voila!"
    and expelled the grass along with food they'd eaten.
    Luckily, on the hardwood floor, not the carpet.
    Take care - Steven

    How great that she was so active! Go, Miss T! You are a great writer/story teller. Still waiting on your novel. J/K! Keep us posted on how your kitties are doing!

    Yesterday just after I got in the house after work, Teia was at the patio door asking for Out.

    Trotted down the stairs, chewed on grass about 10 minutes, up the stairs, to the door,
    but this time she paused to Kekk on the deck before she went in.

    I didn't know if you already knew why cats eat grass. It seems Miss T is doing her instinctual thing. Here is the article.

    I'd suspected much of what the article states, but did not know of the folic acid info, Thanks.

    It seems that Miss T is gaining strength, and getting back to her cat ways. It would be so great if she ended up in the Guinness book for oldest cat. Go, Miss T!

    I miss my cats so much, but will never be able to have another one because of allergies. Rest In Peace Kitty, GrayC, Tommy and Sox. Also, want to mention my fam's cat's...Charlie, Pandy,
    Thomas, Mouthy, and Bear. All animals we/fam have owned were all rescues, except for the two labradoodles we own now; again because of allergies. I won't bore y'all with all the names of dogs our fam has owned.

    We saved the ashes of the last two dogs, and two cats, and they are on a shelf in hub's office in beautiful boxes. I don't know if that was a good idea, or not. It makes me sad to look at the boxes, but it, also, triggers lots of wonderful memories.

    We have all the kitties we are no longer feeding in nice boxes on a shelf in the closet.
    My final wishes are that their ashes are to be in the burn box with me when I am cremated.
