Update: The Cat is Still Alive
Yes, our dear cat is still alive and kicking at age 18 1/2!!! Everyone is afraid to ask me how he's doing because they assume he's dead by now - but, no, he's still breathing and eating which is all we expect from him. Of course, he's getting slower, and you can feel the bones of his back when you pet him, but he still is aware of where he is and who feeds him. For an outside/inside kitty, 18 1/2 is a long life. He's had his share of infections that we fought off with surgery and antibiotics, but now he sticks to the second floor balcony or the rear deck for "outside" time where the mean neighborhood cats won't pick on him. Mean cats suck.
