    Keyboard Cat has been dead for years, that video was very old, maybe early 90s?

    Got to see Grumpy Cat at SXSW in 2013, about the only SXSW thing I ever did while in Austin. RIP. :tebow:

    Happened to one of my cats at right around the same age.

    IIRC, the infection starts without the cat showing any signs and as such without its owner even knowing.

    The vet explained to us that the cat's piss begins to kind of like crystallize and back up into the system and by then serious infection and organ failure have set in.

    Cats, like many animals, have a natural instinct to hide pain so its likely his owner didnt notice. Once our cat was diagnosed I think we had put him to sleep within 48 hours.

    Fucking sucks.

    Did a "petfluencer" event with Gumpy Cat - "Tartar Sauce" to those that were close to her.

    She seemed pretty chill - which is more than I can say for some of those other divas and their owners.

    I don't know anything about cat life expectancy - but I know she had some form of Dwarfism (hence the unique appearance) so wouldn't be surprised if that negatively impacts average life estimates, etc.

    Bought my youngest daughter a bunch of his books. Was a pretty good author for a pissed off cat.

    When I was 11 years old I wanted a leopard gecko. My mom told me if I finished 6th grade with an A average she would get me one. I studied my ass off and in the summer of 99 my mom bought it for me. I'm 31 years old now, and this lizard will not fucking die : l

    Jesus - how long do they live? I've heard some Parrot horror stories (mother died and left the family a parrot they were obligated to house that ends up living for another 40 years).

    They can apparently live well into their 20's. This is an aspect of gecko ownership that was underrepresented by the pet store employee in my opinion.

    Im headed down that road. My mother has a yellow-naped Amazon who is currently 31 years old. They live 60 to 80 years in captivity. Mom is 61.

    Also - never again - think of a stage mom and multiply it by 1000, then you know what to expect when dealing with the owner of a "petfluencer" in LA. Grumpy Cat's owner was nice though, Tabatha. Think she was from AZ then got a place out here once Grumpy/Tartar started making millions.
