|If it helps you at all my baby boy, Weasel, lived to be 24 years old and I fed him Purina One Salmon & Tuna for dry food and Fancy Feast canned. He would get half of the can in the morning and half at night.
Weasel WOULD have lived longer than 24 but, the "interfering elderly lady" (nicest title I can give her) next door kept luring him to her house to feed b/c she thought he was "too skinny" (he'd lost weight in his old age). Unfortunately, Weasel was napping behind the tire of her car one day and she accidentally ran over him...
Sad story, but the POINT is: Purina One and Fancy Feast = 24 VERY GOOD years for my Weasel-Weaser.
*** Also, I DO have to say: Around year 14-15? I stopped taking him for yearly shots. Weasel HATED the vet & would get upset when he had to go. I was worried for Weasel's heart b/c of the stress a visit caused him. So I talked to our vet and he said that at his age, Weasel was probably as immune as he was going to get so shots probably wouldn't do him any more good.
I'm not saying you should stop taking your furbaby to the vet, but I often wonder if the lack of chemicals from the shots contributed to Weasel's long life span. I KNOW he loved his Fancy Feast, though.
One tip: Be careful about brushing your furbaby's teeth regularly--that was one tip that served me well with Weasel. B/c I kept up with weekly brushing, Weasel still had almost ALL of his teeth at the time of his passing.
Hope this helps!!!
