Calculating Your Cat's Age

In countries with good veterinary care, the average life-span of a neutered domestic cat (barring accidents) is considered to be in 14 years old although there are signs that this may be increasing. More and more cats are reaching their late teens or early twenties. Life-span is determined by several factors: good genetics, good general care, good health care, good diet and a relatively safe environment. In the wild, cats fall victim to accidents, illness, food shortages and predators and may live 6 - 8 years. Cats reach maturity quickly, but as they grow older, their rate of ageing slows down. The infos below compares cat age and human age:

Cat's age: 2 months
Equivalent human age: 9 - 12 months
Weaned and becoming less dependent on the mother.

Cat's age: 4 months
Equivalent human age: 2 - 3 years
Talking (children). Kitten fully independent of the mother.

Cat's age: 6 - 12 months
Equivalent human age: 12 - 15 years
Both are sexually mature and able to breed although they may not have reached their fully growth.

Cat's age: 2 years
Equivalent human age: 24 years
Could already have offspring.

Cat's age: 3 - 6 years
Equivalent human age: 28 - 40 years
Human career-making.

Cat's age: 6 - 9 years
Equivalent human age: 40 - 52 years
Middle age spread, menopause for some women.

Cat's age: 9 - 13 years
Equivalent human age: 52 - 65 years
Human menapouse and retirement. Cats are slowing down.

Cat's age: 13 - 17 years
Equivalent human age: 65 - 85 years
Active but ageing. Signs of senility in some individuals, senses becoming less acute, injuries heal more slowly or incompletely. Internal organs are less efficient.

Cat's age: 17 - 19 years
Equivalent human age: 83 - 92 years
Growing frailty; bones less dense, less subcutaneous fat, poorer muscle tone, more fragile skin, less supple. Hearing, sight and mobility affected.

Cat's age: 19 - 22 years
Equivalent human age: 92 - 100 years
Ripe old age. Female cats have bred at this age.

Cat's age: 22+ years
Equivalent human age: 100+ years
Exceptional old age, but becoming increasingly common in domestic pet cats.

Cat's age: 30 years
Equivalent human age: 136 years
Several cats have attained this age.

Cat's age: 34 - 36 years
Equivalent human age: 152 - 160 years
Longevity records noted in the Guiness Book of Records.

Cat's age: 43 years
