MY CAT’S AGE, CALCULATIONS AND INFORMATION

MY CAT’S AGE, CALCULATIONS AND INFORMATION

For the collective imagination, our domestic cats and kittens have 7 lives …

There are many theories to explain this popular myth. Most of them are as esoteric and millennial as they are interesting, others, scientists, refute the myth of the 7 lives, but emphasize the incredible strength of these felines.

The belief that cats have 7 lives is popular almost everywhere. In fact, in Anglo-Saxon countries such as England, cats are so admired that they enjoy not 7, but 9 lives.

BUT AT WHAT HUMAN AGE CAN MY CAT BE?

A domestic cat lives on average between 10 and 16 years. Also, if it is around 10 years old that the first signs of old age may appear, your cat certainly has not had his last word!

Since the lifespan of a cat is closely related to its breed, gender, diet and quality of life, the relationship between cat and human ages is purely indicative and is based on refers to the domestic cat who lives with the family. Still, that’s all you need to know to know your cat’s age.

CALCULATING THE AGE OF MY CAT

In practice, there is no mathematical formula (well at least, no simple formula) because the age of the cat does not follow a linear curve compared to that of humans. As in many animals, “childhood” and “adolescence” proceed much faster than in humans.

It is therefore rather from the observations of the cat’s ages, that the veterinarians established a correspondence table to visualize an equivalent in human age:

Real cat age    1     2     3     4     5     6     7     8     9
Human age    19   24   28  32   36   40   44   48   52
Real cat age   10   11   12  13   14   15   16   17   18   19   20
Human age    56   60   64   68   72  76   80   84   88   94   100

THE AGE OF THE CAT

Throughout its life, cats, like humans, see their physiology, health and physique evolve.

Here are some benchmarks:

TO CASTER A CAT

A cat can be castrated at any age, but it is best to do this as soon as the animal has reached sexual maturity and before its first intercourse. This age is around 8 months for males.

TO STERILIZE A PUSSY

A cat can be sterilized at any age, but it is best to do this as soon as the animal has reached sexual maturity and before its first heat. This age is around 6 months for females.

CAT LIFE EXPECTANCY

a cat can live 15 to 20 years.

HOW DO WE SAY?

a female cat: a cat
