    My best cat friend was with me from the time I was 3 years old until I was 22 or 23. :) She was the best cat in the world.

  18. Nana says:

    My first kitty (Boots) was born on my bed when I was 10. He was my best/only friend for 22 years. 30 years later, I still miss him so much.

    • Anna says:

      Whiskey was with me for 25 years and passed away in my arms. I still miss her dearly. However, after mourning her for many months, I wandered into an SPCA and was introduced to a tiny, black fuzzy ball who promptly snuggled up to my neck. ShotsZee and I have been together for four years now. We are joined by three other fosters, Apollo, Athena (both black kitties) and Zeus (black and white). Black kitties give you so much love and seem to work harder at winning your heart. If you haven’t found another furry friend, perhaps a shelter kitty is waiting for you to come rescue him/her. Blessings.

    This is truly a beautifilul story. You are both gorgeous. Thank you.

  26. Anne McQuiston says:

    I myself had a cat that was alive for almost 20 years old when she passed away. I got my calico cat Tabitha in Sept. 1980 and I had to have her put down in April 2000. She was very small also. I got her when I was 28 years old. That is so nice that you had or have your cat for 20 years like I did.
