Calculating Cat Years to Human Years

Posted by Edward Cruz on


Contrary to popular belief, one cat year does not equal seven human years. In fact, feline aging is much more rapid during the first two years of life. A cat will reach the approximate human age of 15 during its first year, then 24 at age 2. Each year thereafter, a cat ages approximately four cat years for every calendar year. Thus, a cat who is 5 in cat years would be approx 36 in human years.  But, take note that cats who live outdoor ages far more quickly than an indoor cat.

Refer to this chart for a better understanding of cat years to human years:
