Average life span of the cat

Average life of the cat, to be estimated and to imagine when you take a kitten with us and wonder how long it will remain to keep us company with its purr and its scratching of the sofa, with its leaps and hairs scattered everywhere, especially on sweaters from which it is difficult to remove them. The average life span of the cat depends on many factors and the calculations made based on the statistics are not very reliable. Already a veterinarian can better estimate the life expectancy of the cat he visits in person but the unknowns remain.

Average life span of the European domestic cat

A domestic cat certainly has a longer life span than its peers living on the street. In general, an animal welcomed into a family begins to become old around the tenth year of life. It is noticeable because it loses athleticism and liveliness, becomes more lonely and lazy than ever, sometimes more listless. It can also happen that the hair begins to become less thick. The European domestic cat is often neutered or spayed. These operations seem to extend the life of the animal.

Average life span of the stray cat

The average life span of the stray cat is difficult to estimate because on the one hand, being often on the street, it is physically strengthened and hardened. On the other hand, it can face many unforeseen events that obviously we cannot include in the calculation of the average life.

However, if a domestic cat has an average life span of up to ten years, the stray cat on average does not exceed 3 or 4 years. When we adopt a stray cat, we must therefore know that if before meeting he had illnesses or misadventures, he could pay the consequences on life expectancy even if we his new owners treat him very well.

Average life span of the Siamese cat

The Siamese cat is a delicate and charming cat, has a rather interesting life and is often a guest of homes where he is loved and revered.

Average life of the Chartreux Cat

Even the Chartreux, beloved cat especially in France, is a desired and loved animal in most cases, also having a certain price. 

Record maximum cat age

Whether or not there is a cat that has already beaten this record is something that cannot guarantee because every year the records are updated and we take better care of these cats. At the moment the oldest cat of which we know is English, now it is no longer there but it has remained in history. He lived a good thirty-five years, other than the ten or twelve we have talked about so far.
