a 19-year-old is pretty much the opposite of a kitty. I didn't know they even live that long! OP must be a really got pet owner.

Yeah, it's kind of annoying when people call older animals by their baby names. No, your ten year old dog is not a puppy anymore.

19 year old cat is quite the trooper! Although you think you'd know your cat would do this especially if it wasn't the first vacation where you brought the cat.

If kept indoors cats can easily live into their twenties, unless they have renal or urinary problems that sometimes come with old age. By that time though they're pretty scraggly. Teeth falling out.. Old ass cat syndrome lol

Agreed that vet visits are ridiculously expensive but at least your cat is alright! That's the important thing, right?

I feel like its so mean that vets charge so much. It's like they know they have us by the balls so they jack up their prices. The sad thing is many pets don't get the care they need because the owners don't have the money for the vet bills. I think if vets truly care about animals as they obviously do and should, they should figure out a way to lower prices or allow care for people that don't have the money to pay for it.
