The age of the cat and the cat according to human standards: the table, the proportion of ages

Because of their size, cats live for a long time. Normally, the lifespan of an animal is proportional to its size (the only exceptions are humans, turtles, whales and some other animals).

The little mouse has a short lifespan, the rabbits live a little longer. Dogs, according to size and race, live much longer, from 7 to 20 years.

Cats are not much more than rabbits, but while rabbits generally live no more than 7 years, the average life expectancy of cats is 12 to 14 years, and it is not uncommon for cats to live at home until they are 20 or even 25 years.

In cats, we distinguish conditionally 6 stages of life:

1. Kitten: 0-6 months.
The period in which a young cat grows rapidly, develops and barely reaches its mature age.

2. Young cat: 6 months – 2 years.
The cat reaches its full adult size, learning life and survival.

3. A cat at its best: 2 years – 6 years.
The cat is fully developed physically and intellectually, is healthy and very active, its fur looks soft and shiny.

4. Mature cat: 7-10 years.
A cat is called mature when, according to human standards, it can be administered from 40 to 50 years.

5. Mature cat: 11-14 years old.
The age of the cat is about 70 human years.

6. Old cat: 15 years and older.
Many cats reach this stage and show no signs of senile diseases! Although the age of these cats according to human standards is more than 70 years.

The following table shows all stages of the life of cats (from 1 month to 21 years), as well as the equivalent age of a person. This information will allow you to assess the age of your cat or cat inside, because, as noted, this is not very obvious from the outside, as cats rarely turn gray and often show no external signs of pain or disease, such as arthritis.
