The Half-Life of a Cat

Posted on Wednesday, December 6th, 2023

Dave!Jake and Jenny turn 8 years old today. Well, probably today. They were found in the wild, so their birthday has always been estimated.

Last year was more than a little upsetting for me, because most cats only live 13 to 14 years old, which means December 2022 was the half-way point of their expected lifetime. Sure there are cats that live to be 18 years old, but this is not common. Which is to say that if they weren't at their half-life last year, they most certainly are this year.

It's tough to wrap my head around, because it seems like they only arrived yesterday...

Jenny & Jake

So, yeah, celebrating Jake and Jenny's birthday from here on out is just going to be a celebration of them being around for another year. Because that's pretty much what it has to be, doesn't it?

Jenny stretching out across my arm.

Jake laying his chin across my legs looking bored.

Happy 8th birthday to my two knuckleheads. My life is better because you're both in it.
