Point of interest.

Roland is now 13 years old. Indoor only, so like 68 years old. He's pretty spry for 68. His black fur is turning reddish. Sign of age.

He went to the vet today, and will be getting his teeth cleaned early January.

Lulu lived to be 21....that's 100 in human years.

@chai2,
Hi Chai - what formula do you use for cat ages? I always thought it 7 per human year. You made me hunt and I found this:

And this [Source]

6 months 15 years
1 year 24 years
2 years 28 years
3 years 32 years
4 years 36 years
5 years 40 years
6 years 44 years
7 years 48 years
8 years 52 years
9 years 56 years
10 years 60 years
11 years 64 years

@hingehead,
No wonder poor Nermal is slowing down. He's older than I am.

@hingehead,
You know what hingehead, I was wrong. He's 15, not 13.

I don't know about any of those charts then, because he sure doesn't act like he's in his late 60's to 80.

He's totally indoor though.

Lulu was great until the last few months of her life. Slowed down, but that was fine.
She was a fine fat girl.

Otis is I think a couple years younger than Roland. Even as a kitten he had these big dense bones. When he got fixed he got fatter and fatter, even though he doesn't eat much at all. He's huge.

I don't worry about it because he doesn't.

The 2 of them are like Laurel and Hardy.

@chai2,
Mine are both 15, they still climb the wooden fences with ease and spend as much time outside as in.

@chai2,
That's not how mine make their displeasure known. They're as nice as anything, purring so loud the vet can't hear their heartbeats, going in and out of cat boxes with no problem, and generally being very friendly.

Then they, (actually only one of them,) **** in the car on the way back home.

@izzythepush,
I was wondering what particular breed of moron the owner was. AFTER those techs and the vet managed to get through the exam with no one injured, it’s like “Oh, by the way, could you just go back and take a look into his mouth?”

I consider myself to be an expert level cat wrangler, and the tech was so dead on in explaining (a) you have to have all your ducks in a row and all contingencies covered Before doing anything, and (b) when you do make your move, it’s got to be swift, firm and confident.

@chai2,
I'm very lucky with my cats. They're very friendly and not at all bitey or scratchy.

Although as mentioned I do get the odd dirty protest.

@hingehead,
Sometimes I forget out long my best boy is.

From widipedia:

Cats average about 23–25 cm (9–10 in) in height and 46 cm (18 in) in head/body length (males being larger than females)

We just took a nap, and his butt was in my arm pit, and the end of his nose rested at the tip of my middle finger. He was slightly crumped up in there.

I just measured my arm, and it's 24 inches, 61 cm from armpit to finger tip.

When he was an adolescent, he would take a sharp turn while running full speed, and jackknife like a semi truck.
