Our sweet kitty Daisy just turned 17! And I swear she doesn't look a day over 5. Cat's are weird but Daisy takes the cake. She lives in our closet. The door is always open but she chooses to stay in the closet. And before you say it's because of the dogs - it's not. She comes out at night and gets in the bed with us and several of the dogs. She won't drink out of a bowl, she has to have a glass of water...I'm telling you, she's odd.
I got Daisy when she was just 8 weeks old and I was in college. She has literally been through it all with me. I know 17 is getting up there, some might even say old...but I think her odd ball ways have kept her pretty well preserved. She's sticking around for a few more. Happy B-Day my Daisy May!
