Today rang a bell in my mind and I realized that was because I had watched one of our horses giving birth to her son on this date years ago - our Magic is 29! Seems like it was only yesterday when I watched him being born...
So I went back and did the calculations ~ counting on both hands!
If Magic is 29, then Mischief is 27 and Champ is a "young" 25 ~ as far as the cats? Beets is a soon-to-be 20 year old (still 19), Tigger might be 17-18 (?), Bubba is close to 16, Tango and Alli will be 13 this August ~ that leaves our youngster, Haystack, who will turn 3 next May who keeps everyone young....
So, everyone, how old are the furry/hairy members of your family?
Oh my goodness, I don't know exact ages for most of mine because they are found dogs and cats. But the two livestock guard dogs are 13 and 2 1/2 years.
Lady is about 13, PB 14-15, Grace 4-5, Annie 3-4, Oreo 3, Theo 3, Bear 3, Rusty Chico 13-14. The cats, Sam is 5, Tigger is 8.
Our pets are living much longer than they used to because there is better nutrition and better medical care available for them. As I get older--in my 70's now--I see how this creates a whole other set of problems for seniors who never expected their pets to outlive them.
Mona the mastiff is 5. Rocky and Zoe (GSDs) will turn 9 in a few days. Sammy is 14 and Boo will be 13. Snowball is 4 and Speedy will be 2. Good nutritious food, lots of loving care and attentive vets have kept them all healthy and happy!

Grey will be 6 next month (I count his birthday from the time he adopted me). Dulcey and Cissey will be 5. Cissey is Grey's daughter, I think Dulcey's father is a cat that lived up the street, Frosty. And I'm not sure about Cheetah. He just showed up, and liked us and stuck around last summer. I think he might be about 4 or 5.

Sylvia is 15, Skittles is 3 and Storageddon is about 2 now. All cats.
Sylvia is a dilute calico long hair female, Skittles is a FAT white short hair with a few spots and Stormy is pure absolute pitch black short hair. we call him our "rescue panther" like in the GEICO commercials.
Life is GOOD!!

And earlier today, she wriggled out of her harness at the duck pond and went for a ONE HOUR swim chasing the ducks. Every time she came out of the water to chase them, she jumped back in before my daughter or I could catch her. Finally my daughter enlisted the services of four little boys who pounced on her as soon as she came ashore.

Thai, our cat, is 2 1/2 The dogs, Harley the red heeler is 4 Jincy, the bull-lab mix is probably 6 or 7? The Quarter horses, one mare is 8 and the gelding is 7. We are way down in numbers. DH wants a catahoula hound so we are looking. They are not a very well known breed around here.
Idaho, do you still ride your horses? We rode our mares way up into their 20's. Just trail rides nothing strenuous. As far your cats and their ages, they probably weren't too happy with you when you brought Haystack in amongst them and upset their peaceful domain
