My ginger girl lived until she was 24. Sadly started to go down hill after she lost her her mate of 17 yrs. A long coat german shepherd. Ginger had a massive 21st party. – Jo Morgan



My Oscar got to 24 and was still going strong until he went into shock after a stray cat beat him up … he was always a very peaceful soul  Have had lots of cats in the late teens and early 20’s. The secret is one meal of REAL food a day! Fresh meat, small fish, rabbit, chicken necks .. whatever as long as it’s not out of a tin or packet ….. and a second meal of good quality dry to supplement any deficiencies. – Jennifer Collins



My girl is 18. I reckon she’s got at least another 6 years in her. – Sandy Lumbar
