Cat Years

The life expectancy of a cat is typically 15-17 years. However, a cat kept indoors may live to upwards and, at times, over 21 years. This compares to a world average for humans of 67.2 years. A one-year-old cat may be compared to a 15-year-old-human. This proportion narrows as the cat gets older so that when the cat is 15 it is equivalent to a 76-year-old person.
