Cat turned 6 this Oct and has health issues. She had a clot and still is not walking right- but she is walking again!

Kitten will be 2 on Feb 3.

I need to start saving now so I can get another Savannah when the cat passes. I looked at some breeders websites recently and they want twice what we paid for our kitten. It will hopefully be several years... Unless we buy a bigger house. Then I think I can talk dh into another!

We have 2 dogs. Oz is a bull mastiff and is 7 and getting old for his breed. Sheba is a pekingese and is around 16. We found her at the pound the day before she was to be put down. She was old when we got her. Vet guesses around 12. My best guess is that someone passed away and none of the family members wanted the dog. When we brought her home she knew exactly what a French fry was. LOL

Not sure what we will do when we lose the dogs. I know DH wants another one. Told him he could have an Irish wolf hound but I am not sure how well one would do in Florida. Will probably get something smaller to play with DD. She is 3 and constantly asks for a puppy. Our dogs are old so they don't play anymore.

We have 2 dogs. One is 12, the other one is around 7, I think. Both were adopted as adults so no one is totally clear on an exact age. We use their adoption dates as their bdays.

We expect that the kids will be gone around the same time as the pets so it will be a truly empty nest. Not sure how that will feel!

Maggie is a sheltie/collie mix (but way more collie) and she just turned 16 in December. We know that every month we have with her is a extra (but then again we have been saying that for about 2 years!) She has some trouble with her back legs and some trouble seeing...and selective hearing...but she sure loves to eat!!

We currently have 2 cats. Monster, the girl, is 12, and Dio, the boy, is 5. I'm sure Monster has plenty of years left in her (they're both strictly indoor cats, and she's still pretty spry and playful), but I sometimes think about how Dio will be when she's gone. I know that animals mourn their companions...

I also still consider my cocker spaniel Tara my pet, even though she passed in September 2011 at 17 1/2.

We had two kitties one we lost 1 month after her 16th Birthday the other we lost 1 month shy of her 17th Birthday.
I thought I'd never have more pets, yeah right that lasted 4 months.
We adopted two kittie but lost one at 9 months we were devestated as was his brother. Soon after that we started fostering, it was a wonder experience but we stopped when we had FOUR of our own. Two born in 2009 Two in 2010 !

Sadie is 11 going on 12. A Jack Russell Terrier who is still full of energy.
Allie is 5 going on 6 my cat.

We lost two cats last year one to an unknown cause at 8 Kenzie and then Cassie was attacked by an animal and we aren't sure of her actual age.

Wow, that sounds just like my Jack Russell! She will be 17 in June, God willing!
