Ebbie, 19
Maggie Villano
Hackettstown, N.J.
Although my cat Ebbie is now 1 years old, she still has the same mischievous ways that she’s had since kittenhood. She now spends more time sleeping than playing, but she still manages to get into things. I’m very grateful that she still amuses me with all her shenanigans!

Molly, 18
Elaine Read
Nepean, Ontario, Canada
I got my cat Molly when she was 15. For exercise, I started to throw pieces of her kibble for her to chase. She loved this game and soon waited expectantly every evening for me to throw it for her. She is now 18 (she’ll be 19 in July) and, although she still waits for me to start the game, she now walks to the kibble and won’t move if it lands more than 3 feet away.

CAT FANCY's Oldest Cat Contest entry Smokie

Smokie, 18
Lois and Dale Marks
Louisville, Ohio
Smokie is an adorable, loving senior citizen. He may be a bit arthritic now, but in the past, he spent five years visiting hospitals and nursing homes as a Delta Society cat, bringing joy to the patients. He still enjoys playing with his 8-year-old “sister” Snuggles.

Dawn Benchley

Tom is 18 years old and is in fairly good health. He’s my best friend and I love him very much.

CAT FANCY's Oldest Cat Contest entry Lauren

Lauren, 18
Rebecca Wolf
Anna, Texas
Lauren was born my junior year in high school, and I have had her from that day forward. She has been my loyal friend and companion for the last 18 years. She’s now older than I am when she was born! Lauren was there for my high school graduation, college graduation, marriage and the birth of both of my children. We all kiss her goodbye in the morning and are excited to get home in the evening to have her meet us at the door. We are grateful for her every day.

My cat, Smudge, just turned 15 in June. Her sister, Dot had to be put to sleep due to health reasons. It was the humane thing to do as she was suffering in pain. I really miss her!

My Whitey turned 17 the first of May. I've had her since she was about a week old. She's partially blind, slightly arthritic and terribly opinionated, but very playful and loving. Our vet wouldn't think she's that old by just looking at her; and she certainly doesn't act her age. The "old lady" of the house never turns down a chance to chase paper balls.

I missed this contest. My cat Lucy has been with us for 21 years. We we rescued her from a warehouse she was probably 6 to 9 months old & pregnant. Although she has never weighed more then 9 lbs she is the Alpha of my 4 resident cats and various fosters that come and go. Nobody messes with Lucy. She's a little slower now but she gets around, still goes outside, and still bosses everone (including myself & my husband). We love her dearly.
