She just understands that we can talk about him and look at photos of him, but he's no longer with us. I mean, I mostly think she gets that he's permanently gone, but we'll see if she continues to ask about him...

My father's cat lives with us and is similarly aged. I'm taking her in next week to have thorough preventative screening so hopefully we're better prepared for the next time. I for some reason believed cats live to be around twenty and clearly that's false. N was only 12.25 years.

(((((peri))))) cats generally live between 10 and 14 but they can live beyond that, depending on several factors including whether they are allowed outside, what their early experiences were, etc (like say for example if they was a stray like Ebony was, they might have been exposed to something nasty while on the streets, like we suspect Ebony was)
