Your Cats Life Stages

Friday, December 27, 2013
posted by Jim Murphy

KITTEN AND CATNormally, cats have a longer life span than dogs, I should say “indoor” cats. A cat that lives outdoors has a greatly reduced life span due to many circumstances. These include, getting into fights with other animals, extreme weather conditions, getting hit by cars, poisoning and many other conditions. If your cat is 12 years old, what would be the equivalent human age? The following chart  obtained from Healthy Pets.Com outlines the life stage, actual age of the cat and the human age equivalent.
