All about Coco
When people adopt a new cat or are thinking about buying a cat they often want to know how old that cat is. If the cat is a kitten this is usually easy. The original owner should know how old the kitten was or if you bring the kitten to a veterinarian, the vet should be able to tell how old the kitten is with a reasonable degree of accuracy. If good records were kept from kitten-hood or previous adoptions, again this is an easy task. The problem occurs when you are considering getting an adult cat whose age and/or history are unknown.

Coco is a senior citizen to say the least. He will be 24 in January of 2005 and is still going strong. I did however think that I was losing him a couple of days ago when he became very despondent, began vomiting and then stopped eating. Upon observation at the animal clinic, he was discovered to have a severe urinary tract infection (thank goodness not his kidneys like I feared) and is currently on antibiotics which he is responding to favorably. He's just not ready to leave me yet!!!
When Coco was a kitten he was given to me by a lady who got him for her grandmother for companionship. Apparently he was too much for her to handle and was offered to me... I had another young Siamese at the time and she wanted NOTHING to do with him. Nonetheless, he did for her, and that's all that mattered. I lost my female, Fina, when she was almost 19 years old, a loss that will always remain heavy in my heart. Coco lives on and has made a huge impact on my life. I truly can't imagine what it would have been like without him by my side all these years, but I do thank God for all those wonderful years he's given me. For anyone who's ever had the pleasure of raising a Siamese, it's an experience like no other. The breed can be extremely unpredictable, demanding, but even moreso loving- unconditionally. I will cherish the remaining time I have with him and when the time does come for him to leave me, his memory will have impacted my life permanently and my love will go with him.
