Feline Friday ~ How Old is Your Cat?



Today's Feline Friday topic is "CAT AGE".  Want to know how old your cat is in human years?
Check out the article & chart below!  (source)
My 2 furballs are about 36 years old!

Ever Wonder How Old Your Cat Is?


Cats usually live longer than most dogs. A dogs average life span might be 12 to 14 years, with some cats reaching 20 and more. A cat's longevity can depend on whether or not it lives indoors or is allowed outdoors (outdoor cats live an average of eight years). It also can be based on genetics, feeding, enviroment, and veterinary care. The general consensus is that at about age seven a cat can be considered "middle-aged", and at age 10 and beyond - old.


It was once generally thought that one year in the life of the cat was equivalent to seven years of a human life. A new scale of equivalents is now recognized: after the first two years, the cat's life proceeds more slowly in relation to human life and each feline year is approximately four human years.


Cat's Age: ...................................Human's Age:

6 months...............................................10 years
8 months...............................................13 years
10 months..............................................14 years
1 year....................................................15 years
18 months..............................................20 years
2 years..................................................24 years
4 years..................................................32 years
6 years..................................................40 years
8 years..................................................48 years
10 years................................................56 years
12 years................................................64 years
14 years................................................72 years
16 years................................................80 years
18 years................................................88 years
20 years...............................................96 years
21 years..............................................100 years

On a side note ~ my 2 foster kittens, Sophie & Sierra, are getting snipped this morning (spayed) & will be placed on the adoption floor as soon as they're recovered.  It was bittersweet saying goodbye to them but I KNOW they are going to get snatched up by a lucky family in no time!  They are just TOO adorable!
God bless you sweet girls!

REMEMBER ~ DON'T LITTER!  SPAY & NEUTER!

The SUN is out!  Have a wonderful weekend! xox
