Quick Smiles:

  • Miranda @mirpeachyy adopts a 20 1/2-year-old cat bursting with youthful energy.
  • From playing dress up to causing mischief, this senior cat lives life to the fullest.
  • Audience members share their stories of long-lived cats, underscoring the joys of adopting older pets.

Adopting a new pet can be a monumental decision filled with many considerations. One of those is often age, especially when thinking about welcoming a senior animal into the fold.

However, one particular story might just change your perspective on giving older pets a chance.

“Elderly” might technically describe this cat, but don’t tell her that! As Miranda @mirpeachyy showcased in a video from September 5th, “We’d never have guessed she was this far along in years!”

Her kitty has aged like a fine Bordeaux, improving with time and defying expectations.

Miranda happily shares, “She tells us she rescued this beautiful long-haired cat when she was 20 1/2 years old.”


Yet, contrary to some beliefs about older pets, this time with the cat hasn’t merely been serene lounging. This vivacious feline is “brimming with vitality!”

From her penchant to “play and chase her toys” to her sporting an adorable Halloween outfit and a celebratory birthday hat, she is full of surprises. Even a trip to the vet doesn’t phase her.

She can be seen “jumping from a chair to the table” and leaping off her cat tree. And oh, did we mention the mischief? Like any younger furball, she’s caught “digging into her cat food bag. What a rascal!”

This radiant kitty’s energy and zest for life underline the core message: “These senior animals have so much life left to live, they only need someone to open their hearts and give them a chance.”

And that sentiment resonated with many. Viewer @Tayler shared, “I did this, and the cat lived to be 28. I was sure she was an immortal witch for a long time.”

Numerous others echoed similar tales of long-lived senior cats proving that when they find their perfect humans, they thrive.


The old adage rings true, especially in this instance: “you are only as old as you feel.”

And judging by this cat’s actions and spirit, she feels nothing short of a spunky teen!
