There are rare cases in which cats manage to exceed 12 years of life, especially if they roam the streets, but the truth is that it is not something impossible.
And although we don’t know the secret, we know notable examples such as that of Kizzy, a 25-year-old feline.
Kizzy is an elderly cat who lives with her owners, Alison and Dean Lyng, in the village of Chatham in Kent (England), whom she comforts with her affection and her faithful company, but unfortunately, they all went through a sad episode the day the feline disappeared from their sight in 2021.
The days passed and Kizzy did not come home, which made her owners believe that she probably would not do it because of her age. Since she was on the street or in another dangerous place, she would not have a chance.
But fortunately, a person saw the malnourished cat, with fleas and its very long claws, which did not allow it to walk normally, near a road in Upchurch, Kent, so he took her to a veterinarian.
However, the doctors did not locate any microchips to see if she had an owner and assumed that she was stray, but the Animals Lost and Found rescue group in Kent still called to help her find her owners and thanks to that, Alison discovered her and recognized her.
After 2 years without Kizzy, Alison and Dean were finally able to find her. And even though she had spent many days away from them, she had not forgotten them.
“She recognized the smell of my husband and then she cried. Now she relaxes with us and receives a lot of care and treats, ” the woman detailed according to Daily Mail. “It’s absolutely great to see her again, but what were the chances? “, she added. And before I saw him, when she was with the caregiver, he just made suspicious meows.
Kizzy’s age is already amazing and especially since she managed to survive on her own, even if it wasn’t a great experience at all. “She was emaciated, she weighed only 2.5 kg, she had worms and fleas and she couldn’t walk because of her claws. And this is a pet cat, without a microchip, who is 25 years old and has lived in a house and has been cared for all his life, ” the owner said according to Daily Mail.

Natasha McPhee, founder of the group that helped Kizzy, also joined the celebration. “It’s just wonderful! It’s amazing. Most cats do not reach this age indoors, let alone outdoors by themselves, “she said according to the British media outlet. So glad Kizzy is back home.
