Old Man

This is Stanley. I got him 17 years ago, when he fit in my hand and had the worst case of pinkeye and fleas that I have ever seen in a cat. Since that time, he's been healthy as a horse, although he spends most of his time sleeping in the warmest spot he can find these days.

According to multiple websites, a 17 year old cat is approximately 85 in human years. I think he looks pretty good for an 85 year old, male pattern baldness notwithstanding.

Id say he was pretty handsome for sure!
My CK girl is a Chocolate lab and is 14 and in dog years that would make her 98. I think she looks great!

Stanley is a very lucky cat to have spent 17 years with you. May there be many more.

He's a handsome devil :). We have two almost 15-year-old cats. Can't imagine life without them. It's funny to think that cats are actually in their old age, when they look so cute and furry.

What a handsome "man"! Wishing him happy and healthy years to come.

What a great looking kitty. We rescued Lightning from the streets, she was in bad shape and a real "scaredy" cat. We nursed and nurtured her back to health, and she lived a full 19 years before she passed away. Now we have a dog, but still miss the purring everyday.

he's beautiful. my kitties will be 14 in May and I'm appreciating every day I have with them because I know even though they don't look it, they're becoming old kitties. I keep them close and love them every day. your photos of Stanley are lovely. have a great weekend Erin.

He's so cute! Stunning for 85 :)

I love the "screw you" look that cats have perfected.

Such a handsome kitty! I have a sweet sweet black lab who is quickly approaching her 12th birthday! Yay for geriatric (in age only) pets they are the BEST.

He looks quite wonderful for 17. My dog is 13 1/2 and looks a lot younger (except for today when he's depressed about all the rain).
