Yesterday was my birthday. The big 60! I can hardly believe it, but am not bothered by it. Was having a great day until I got home and saw my cat lying listlessly on the rug. I knew he was old and wouldn't last long as he had already shown signs of impending death. I am grateful that I was able to be with him as he took his last few breaths and then quietly died as I held and petted him. He was 19 1/2 years old. Very old for a cat. Did put a damper on my birthday celebration. I will miss you Zaners! Rest in Peace. My older cat died last yr. @ 19 1/2 too. Still miss you Zoe!

    Sorry about your loss but isn't that sweet that he waited for you to come home to spend those last moments together.

I dread losing my pets. I have an 18 y/o cat, a 14 y/o cat and a 7 y/o dog. They simply just never die!

  First of all, HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY. You will love your 60s...........they are supposed to be the new 40s you least that's what I've heard!!!

Secondly, I am very sorry to hear of your cat's death..........and sorry it had to happen on your birthday. We have always had cats and our last one was also 19 years old when she died. I still miss her.
