All people want their cats to live long, full, and healthy lives. But it is helpful in planning for different life events by knowing how long your cat is expected to live. For the most up to date information, check with your Livonia vet.
First off, there is no set time for any one cat to live, just like is the case in humans. Some cats live shorter lives, and some house cats when well cared for can live up to 21 years! The average age of cats ranges between 12 and 15 years. To determine your cat’s age, check with your Livonia vet.
How to Make it Last
For starters, house cats live much longer than feral and stray cats. This is because of easy access to food, medical care, etc (imagine how long you’d live in the woods by yourself). So in order to give your cat the longest life possible, let it stay indoors.
For more information or to find out the approximate age of your cat, check with your local Livonia vet.
