Wow! 27yo cat.. never seen a cat that oldHow heartbreaking for you. 30 years. My Persian cat died a few years ago at 27 yo. I still cry if I think about her. Our sweet desert tort came to us completely unexpectedly after the cat passed on. The tort saved our lives from sadness. Please don’t beat yourself up. Thirty years? You certainly did all the right things! I am so sorry for the loss of your little shelly friend.
