sasha-catHave you ever wondered how to work out 'human years' for your cat?

Here's how to do it:

Allow 15 human years for the first year of your cat's life.

Add nine years for the second year. A two-year old cat will approximate 24 human years.

Add four human years each for successive years of his life.

Sound complicated? When all else fails, refer to the chart below!


Please Note that this method utilizes averages only. Some pedigrees such as Maine Coons, mature much slower and don't reach full development for three or four years. Finally, like humans, cats age in relation to diet, exercise and care.

We'd love to see photos of your cat. Why not upload them to our facebook page - who knows, your favourite feline might end up being featured on our website!
