This beautiful tortoiseshell cat is Cleo, and she is 20 years old! Menandcats.com reader Jennifer submitted this photo of Cleo and her man (who prefers to remain un-named).
Jennifer says, “When I met my husband, I had a rule that I would only date men who had a cat. He had TWO! We’ve been together a long time now (14 years), but our little tortie, Cleo, has me beat – she’s been with him since she was a tiny, rescued kitten, 20 years ago. Here he is with Cleo (this was taken a few years ago, when she was 17 – she looks pretty much the same, which is beautiful, especially considering her age!). Cleo loves anywhere warm and a nice lap, in the sunshine is just about perfect.”
