The life expectancy of pets is pitifully short in comparison with that of humans. That is why it becomes even more important to surround our four-legged companions with love and care when they reach an advanced age.

Elderly pets may be less active than they once used to be; they can sleep more and get tired on walks faster. But rest assured, they love you every bit as much and always want to be near you.

We would like you to meet several long-living pets that are still gorgeous and their masters' best friends.
