I have 2 that will be 16! They are house cats only,,never ever go out. They go to the vet for checkups yearly and if i think something may be wrong i go right to the vet. Cats can live to be 20 with good care!

My cat was a de-clawed (horrible, I know, blame my parents) and an outdoor cat who lived on the whole age range of Science Diet foods right from kitten to elderly. She lived to 17.5 years before she had to be put down.

I had cats live to be 16, and 21. We feed them Meow Mix and they were both outdoor/indoor cats. I think the biggest factor I contribute to their long survival is regular check ups and vaccinations along with allowing them inside too. Being inside helped them not have to whether the elements or cat fights, but they... More

Sweetie-pie is 10 years old. I have 3 cats. I used to take care of 72 cats. I feed my cats friskies canned food 3 times a day at 6, 4, and 11. I also leave dry food out at all times. The dry food is friskies. The 72 cats were fed twice a day on friskies canned food. Never had a problem.

Most of my cats live to be 20+. The best thing you can do is to keep your cat indoors only. I live out in the boonies and used to get a LOT of stray/feral cats who HAD.TO.GO.OUT.

My oldest kitty now is 15, I had one live to 20. My dogs have lived to 18. Not so much food, not a particular brand. It's more health care, not letting them run wild, spaying and neutering. My oldest kitty now is 15--he gets dry food, half a can of 9-lives in the evening (more a treat for him), goes to the vet for... More

I have one that will be 11 years old this year. She's spayed, has all her shots, and stays inside. Otherwise, I don't really do anything special aside from feeding her, making sure she has water, and keeping her litter box clean.

The oldest one here is 2 weeks shy of turning 30. Two more are nearing 27. All three are Bombay's. No tricks, gimmicks, it either happens or it doesn't. None were ever outside.
