The oldest cat on record was Crème Puff from Austin, Texas, who lived from 1967 to August 6, 2005, three days after her 38th birthday. A cat typically can live up to 20 years, which is equivalent to about 96 human years.
Please visit this website to find out if your cosmetic company tests on animals: http://features.peta.org/cruelty-free-company-search/index.aspx If a cosmetic company says that they do not test on animals, 'except when required by law' this most likely means that they sell their products in China, and therefore do test on animals.

Our experience suggests that problems occur when bad owners exploit the Staffie's desire to please by training them to show aggression." A third of the dogs at the Battersea Dogs & Cats Home are staffies, which would be a shock to any staffie owner as they know what loyal, friendly and gentle companions they make. http://www.katespetcorner.com/
