How to Convert Your Cat's Age Into Human Years

Because cats don't mature in the same linear fashion as we do, there's no official feline-to-human age conversion formula. So, how can you tell how old your cat is in 'people' years? This life stage chart may provide the best way to figure out the human equivalent of your cat's age.

  • If you're wondering how old your cat is in human years, it's important to note that kitties mature very rapidly compared to us — especially from birth to around age 6
  • With excellent care, many cats can live happy, healthy lives into their late teens or 20s
  • To help your kitty live a long, healthy life, feed a moisture-rich, nutritionally optimal, biologically appropriate diet, and keep her lean and physically fit with daily exercise
