I'm not the werld's oldest cat!!!

Well, as most of yoo know, I've bin a littul deeprest lately abowt being old. Cuz being old suks. I have to go to the V-E-T a lot and I have to take lots of pills evry day, and I'm not as spry as I used to be. But I red a storey today that made me think that maybey I'm not a geezer after all. It was a storey abowt the cat hoo claims to be the werld's oldest cat. How old do yoo think the werld's oldest cat is? I was thinkin' maybey 25 or 27 yeers old, but I was off by A LOT! Terns owt the werld's oldest cat is more than twice as old as I am! >> Reed the storey heer. Yoo mite think this wood make me happy, knowing I've maybey got a lot of good yeers left. But then I started thinkin. I don't have a reetiremint plan or much any savings (unless yoo cownt "my stash"), and I reely don't wanna take pills for ANUTHER 20 yeers!!! Hmmm, thare's a lot to think abowt....

Wanna hear something really depressing, Rocky? (We're telling you anyway...)

This cat is older than Victor Tabbycat and Bonnie Underfoot's MOM! (Well, almost.)

We are privy to that confidential info because she and Mosaic Lady were born in the same Santa Monica, CA, hospital! (But not in the same decade. Bitter, bitter, bitter.)

Mom saw pictures of the oldest cats in this month's edition of Cat Fancy magazine. She read it when she took me to the vet. It's really hard to believe that a cat is that old.

Rocky, you're not old! But it sucks about your pills and stuff. I'm going to be 16 (like you) on August 12 and Mom will be home to celebrate with me. Sometimes she's away on vacation for my birthday since she always goes away for some time in August. I told her that 16 years is special and that I need to be treated royally.

Rocky, I have a 17 year old sister. I read her the article you found and she almost fainted. She does't want to be around another 20 years either taken pills, not able to play anymore and walkng around on sore legs. I must be hard getting old.

Daisy said...

Wow! Baby looks great for her age. But I am not sure I would want to be that old. Because by then my Mommie will be too old to take me out in my stroller.

Rocky, you are only as old as you feel. How old do you feel?

37 is old for a kitty. He must have good jeens for something. How come he does not have problims like us old geezers.
Maybe Baby's owners are just frootydumb and he was really born in 1989 or something...

Rocky you are still spry and peppy.
Nappy is good and we always wake up :-)

headbutts, Caesar

Wow, that is way old. Not you, the other kitty. I'm not sure I would want to ever be that old. It would be hard to get around, I would think.
