Well, when I was growing up, we had a cat make it to 19, believe it or not. When they get to this age, just remember the fun you had with him (and he had with you when he was younger). I'm sure you are giving him great care, he just can't always show his appreciation. It's hard to watch a family member get old, even if it is a dog or cat, they are definitely a family member. Here's to Duke, hoping he can have a few better days before he's gone. May your memories of him after he's gone get sweeter day by day!Here is Duke.
He is not happy. He is 17 years old and his arthritis had flared up again.
Quick story.Maybe you should buy Duke a drink first?
