Been doing so for over a year and it appears under control. He also limps at times because of a foot injury about 3 years ago. Despite those issues he's in good spirits and I really hate to think of the day that I have to say goodbye to him.
Cats are awesome IMO.
Mine lived to be 18. She didn't die in some long ass drawn out year long thing, either, thank god. She had some minor health issues and then a month later died. Although her last three days were spent laying on the living room floor, breathing and meowing but unable to move. IT was terribly sad.

Cat 7:00am - day number 956 of my captivity, still under the thumb of humans. Watched my idiot owner burn himself on the iron this morning...
This shows why dogs and cats are both awesome, respectively.
