He is so cute! I adopted a cat when he was around 13 and he's 18 now and still pretty healthy. I am getting aware that his jumps are getting clumsier as he advances in age, and his eyesight is maybe failing a bit and I might have to adapt things a bit (i.e., place step stools up to my bed so he can get up there easier, etc., without falling) in time but he's still getting around okay for now. Just keep an eye on his abilities as he goes on and accommodate where necessary. You're awesome for taking him in! <3.

Just love him and give him a quiet environment. Of coarse the poor dear may be completely deaf by now. Wow he's old. Oh and a low litter box. Those big covered things could be too hard to get out of.

I heard that in my head like the hot dog song from The Simpsons.

He's starting to warm up to me, but still doesn't want to leave the guest room.

I gotta brag. I think Chewie looks so much better now. (Sorry if the picture is huge. Photobucket on an iPhone is a bisque.)

I noticed a significant amount of dark blood in Chewie's stool tonight and he gets really bitey if I touch his right side. I'm bringing him in first thing tomorrow and I can't help but think the worst given his age. I hope I'm overreacting because I've become rather attached to the old guy.

It's not as bad as I thought. Chewie's intestines are inflamed from hairballs, so I just need to give him some meds and a good brushing.

Well, Chewie is co-piloting the Millenium Falcon in kitty heaven now. He had a bladder tumor and was in a lot of pain. I feel lucky I got as much time with him as I did.

:( i'm sad for your loss, fatcat, but he was so, so lucky to find you in his old age! you did a wonderful thing by taking in an old man down on his luck, and too few people would have been so willing to do it. i hope you have good memories of him to help you through the tough times.

He was a beautiful kitty, fatcat, and I'm sure he was very happy and thankful to spend time with you.
