According to this table, about 50 something.

And it puts Squirrel in her high 80's.

That makes Baby about (with an estimation of what time of year he was probably born) 67, if my memory is at all correct.

Thnx Mark, so she is 52 years old in
human counting. So now I understand
a little more about her, we thought
it would have come out that she was
younger.

See just like our Fryja cat, in the middle of saving the world, but still she can’t stop a nap attack.

A house cat wouldn't do too much damage to a pheasant ...

Maybe not, but this area has Bob Cats and Mountain Lions(Pumas), either one could do the deed.

Why doesn't Baby eat fish when I give it to him? He'll eat chicken, beef, pork, and turkey off my plate, but not fish. He does eat fish cat food, just not real fish. Is it because it's cooked? If I remember correctly, he will eat canned tuna (I haven't had it in a while).

Vic we have cats, not Cougars or Mountain Lions or Bob Cats. The nearest is a Scottish Wild Cat which would easily dispatch a pheasant ...

Thanks for the link, Blurf.

The table means my Parsons Russell is now older than 50 human years. But, the table did not go up to the 19 years our little old West Highland White terrier lived for.

He finally ate the fish during the night, because he didn't have anything else to eat. Except dry food. There's plenty of that.

Grace likes Her canned food, but if She can't smell it, since it's either cold from the refrig or drying out on the surface, then She tends to not eat it, She'll ignore it completely if I put Her dry food out of course, so until I see the bowl is near empty I don't put Her dry food out and She knows better than to beg, as I won't give in, it's better for Her if I don't, as too much dry food will make Her throw up some of it.

A pheasant opened Eric's arm once... badly. I really don't blame the bird. Eric was trying to kill it. Eric goes pheasant hunting every now and again with his father. The only saving grace is that the birds, once dispatched, are actually cooked and eaten. It has taken me some time, but I have come to terms with hunting, provided that it is for food and not solely for sport.
