8 years of age.
He struggled for days, crawling back after getting hit or attacked just so he could die at home. The back of him was in a complete state and there were maggots so obviously he had been attacked or hit by a car a few days ago. He was purring loudly as he was back home, content and ready to die. There was nothing the vets could do so he had to be put down.
RIP Tam, you were an amazing cat and you shall be missed greatly.
