I know alot of cats can live a long live. Sometimes into their 20's. I hear that alot with house cats. At the stable where I work we have a cat named Buttons who is 17 years old! He was born at the stable and probaly die there to! She is in great health and you woudn't think she was that old! When I grew up on the farm alot of our cats died young. Getting hit by cars or getting sick were the big reasons! Anyway i hope Buttons is around for alot longer! She a great cat!

I do hope Buttons lives quite a few more years. The oldest cat lived to be 36 or 38, apparently part of his diet consisted of broccoli. I don't think many cats live beyond their early 20's.. or late teens.

I am amazed at how long that cat lived, but I sure wouldn't want to sleep with it after it had a nice dinner of broccoli! Cat farts aren't too great in the odor department, but after broccoli!!!

LOL One of my cats liked broccoli -- with butter or cheese on it. She was a strange cat anyway, though. She didn't meow -- she growled like a bear. She liked ice cream, but ONLY that natural Breyer's vanilla with the twigs of vanilla bean in it (looked like twigs...TASTED like twigs). And she liked to be carried like a baby, with her butt under my arm and her forelegs on my shoulder.

My friends cat just passed away last month. He was 23 years old. My cats are in their teens. I hope they live to see their 20's. Hope Buttons does to!
