20-Year-Old Cat Is So Happy To Have A New Home That He Can’t Stop Purring

The average life span of a domesticated cat is about 15 years. If you’ve cared for many cats in your time, chances are one more of your fur babies has lived passed this age.

Meet Oswald, a 20-year-old orange tabby, that might be bit older than most kitties, but he’s still going strong! Unfortunately Oswald’s previous owners didn’t agree and surrendered the cat to a shelter without even telling them his name or a reason of why they were giving him up.

Thankfully, Oswald’s story has a wonderful happy ending, and he’s starting a new chapter in his life! Thanks to the Kitty Adventure Rescue League & Sanctuary, Oswald is doing great.

Most cats aren’t very fond of water, especially taking baths, but Oswald seemed fairly happy to finally be clean.

“This guy is a champ. He let me bathe him, and he ate all of the food I put down for him, all he wanted was some chin scratches,” Karyn, Oswald’s new mama

He might have a grumpy face, but Oswald loves people and is thrilled to be around ones who love him back!

    What pieces of shit would do this to a 20 year old cat.

      I’m not sure anything was “done” to the cat, other than giving him up to the shelter. My 20-year-old cat looked similar, as he was on the tail end of longer-term kidney disease and unable to bathe himself to the standards of a typical younger cat. My kitty got a bit smelly, and was really hard to satisfy in that condition. He lived maybe another 3-4 months, but since he expressed no pain and seemed to be happy, we let him pass away naturally.
