The life span of a cat is about 15 years. That is to say, when the cat is 7 or 8 years old, it has entered the middle-aged and old age period. Cat food is marked with the words “over 7 years old”, but “if you eat the same things as you did when you are young, you will worry about whether you will have a habit disease.”. The nutrition of cats is in the process of rapid development just like human beings.
Some people may think, “if you say that you are 7 or 8 years old, how old are cats when they are adults?” The so-called “adulthood” means that the cat has reached the basic stage of sexual maturity, so the cat can be considered “adult” after sexual maturity. Sexual maturity of cats begins about a year after birth. Like humans, there are precocious cats and “late maturing” cats, but most of them begin to mature 10-13 months after birth. During this period, the body size also grew to the size of an adult cat.
So, what about childhood before adulthood? For example, when a cat is born for one month, how old is it? In this regard, there is a way to counter each other’s growth stages.
First of all, cats begin to grow deciduous teeth about 2-3 weeks after birth, and people begin to grow deciduous teeth 6-8 months after birth. Therefore, two to three weeks after a cat is born is equivalent to six to eight months after birth. Cats don’t have all their baby teeth until one month after birth, and people don’t have to be two and a half years old. Cats don’t have permanent teeth until six months after birth, and people don’t reach the age of 12. These can also be regarded as the relative same age. After comparing their developmental stages, we can see the nodding mood.
After the sexual maturity stage also can make the simple calculation according to respective life span.
A little information for reference only, hope to help you!
One year old cats are equivalent to adult cats.
Generally speaking, a cat can be regarded as a full-fledged cat after 12 months, while a cat may be in estrus after about six months, but it can not be mated at this time. At this time, the cat’s body has not yet fully developed, and it has not reached the state of pregnancy and birth. When the cat has the second estrus, the owner can consider mating for the cat.
Cats sleep longer than other animals to replenish energy. The daily sleep time was 12-16 hours, with an average of 13-14 hours. Some of them would sleep for 20 hours, but only 30% of the sleep was in the sound sleep period, and the rest of the sleep time was in the non deep sleep period, which was easy to wake up. In English, “cat nap” means being able to fall asleep as fast as a cat.
Cat, belonging to the cat family, is a more extensive family pet in the world. It is speculated that the domestic cat originated from the desert cat of ancient Egypt, the Persian cat of Persia, which has been domesticated by humans for about 3500 years (but not completely domesticated like dogs).
General cat: head round face short, forelimb five fingers, hind limbs four toes, toe tip with sharp and curved claws, claws can stretch. Nocturnal sex.
Hunting other animals by ambush, most of them can climb trees. There are fat pads on the bottom of the cat’s toes to avoid making noises when walking and not to scare rats away when hunting. The claws are in a contraction state when they are on the road to prevent the claws from being blunt, and will be extended when catching rats and climbing rocks.
Cats come of age about a year and a half.
According to the development of human life span, one month old cat may be equivalent to about 3 years old of human, and 6 months old cat may be equivalent to 10 years old. And in the cat 6-9 months of age, there will be the first estrus, which means that the cat is adult.
When a cat is in estrus for the first time, it means that the cat is sexually mature.
Methods to determine the age of a cat:
The cat opens its eyes about a week, begins to oestrus from June to August, and then it basically takes shape and no longer grows. So it’s a kitten within a year. At this time, the most lovely and robust feeling of fat, can be clearly seen in the future changes.
According to the tooth wear, the lower incisors began to wear in about one year, the canine teeth and the mandibular incisors were grinded into a round shape after 5 years, and the upper incisors were also approximately rounded in 10 years. Cats live for about twenty years.
A cat is an adult when it is six months old. Most adult cats are very energetic in the early morning and dusk, when cats can run, jump and hunt. Puberty in cats is extremely rapid. Female cats generally have their first estrus from 7 to 8 months after birth, and the first estrus will be different according to the cat’s breed and living environment. Siamese cats are usually born 7-8 months and Persian cats are born in 10-18 months. Recently, some Siamese cats began to oestrus at 5 months, perhaps because of adequate human feeding. The male cat is 2-3 months later than the female cat, about 1 year old when the oestrus can be carried out until about 10 years old. Cats gather at the time of the festival to make a song, which is usually called “cat’s spring call” at night.
The life span of a cat is about 15 years, that is to say, when the cat is 7 or 8 years old, it is already in the middle and old age. Cat food is marked with the words “over 7 years old”, but “if you eat the same things as you did when you are young, you will worry about whether you will have a habit disease.”. The nutrition of cats is in the process of rapid development just like human beings.
1£º Cats live longer than dogs. If the life span of a dog is about 12-15 years, the life span of a cat may be about 18 years. According to the development of human life span, one month old cats may be about 3 years old, 6 months old cats may be 10 years old, and 9 months old cats are about 13 years old. In the cat 6-9 months of age, it will appear the first estrus, which means that the cat’s sexual maturity.
2£º As cats grow up, one-year-old cats are about 15 years old as humans, while two-year-old cats are about 24 years old. In other words, a cat of 1-2 years old is in the period of adult growth, and a cat about 1.5 years old means that it has grown up. When a cat is eight years old, it means it is old. Body function, body shape and so on are gradually showing the state of old age.
3£º In fact, different cats have different lifespan. Different breeds of cats have different lifespan, and even cats of the same breed have different lifespan due to genetic factors, acquired living environment and different feeding methods. Here, no matter how long the pet cat can live, as the owner of the cat’s limited vitality, we should give it love and care, so that the cat has a good “cat life”.
The average life span of a cat is 18-20 years old. People are in puberty at the age of 18, but cats are in advanced age at the age of 18. The puberty of cats is between 1 and 2 years old. A 10-year-old cat is basically considered to have entered the old age society. After that, the cat needs to be more carefully cared for by the owner in order to make the cat live a long life. The specific age stages are shown in the table below:
One and a half months © 4 years old © 3 months = 6 years old, 6 months = 10 years old, 9 months = 13 years old, 1 year = 15 years old
2 years = 24 years old, 3 years = 28 years old, 4 years = 32 years old, 5 years old = 36 years old, 6 years old = 40 years old
7 years = 44 years old, 8 years = 48 years old, 9 years old = 52 years old, 10 years old = 56 years old, 11 years old = 60 years old
12 years = 64 years, 13 years = 68 years, 14 years, 72 years, 15 years, 76 years, 16 years, 80 years
17 years = 84 years old, 18 years = 88 years old, 19 years old = 92 years old, 20 years old = 96 years old, 21 years old = 100 years old
The growth and development of cat teeth can be divided into two stages: deciduous and permanent teeth.
In the deciduous stage, there are 26 male teeth, including 6 deciduous incisors, 2 deciduous canines and 6 deciduous premolars in the upper jaw, and 6 deciduous incisors, 2 deciduous canines and 4 deciduous premolars in the lower jaw.
In the permanent teeth stage, there are 30 teeth, including 6 incisors, 2 canines, 6 premolars and 2 molars in the upper jaw, and 6 canine teeth, 4 premolars and 2 molars in the lower jaw.
The growth and change of teeth in cats are very regular, which can be used as the basis for the age identification of kittens.
The first deciduous incisor has a 2-3 circumference
The second deciduous incisor has 3-4 circumference
The third deciduous incisor has 3-4 circumference
The first incisor grows out in 3.5-4 months
The second incisor grows out in 3.5-4 months
The third incisor developed 4-4.5 months
Deciduous canine teeth 3-4 circumference
Canine teeth grow out (change teeth) in 5 months
The first deciduous premolar developed 2 months later
The second deciduous premolar developed in 4-6 months
The third deciduous premolar developed in 4-6 months
The first premolar grows 4.5-5 months
The second premolar grows 5-6 months
The third premolar erupted in 5-6 months
The first molars grow out in 4-5 months
Cats can be considered as adult cats after 1-2 years old
In three months, one and a half months = 4 years old, 3 months = 6 years old, 6 months = 10 years old, 9 months = 13 years old, 1 year = 15 years old, 2 years = 24 years old. Therefore, the puberty of a cat is between 1 and 2 years old, and then it can be regarded as an adult cat. A 10-year-old cat is basically considered to have entered the old age society
The male cats began to oestrus at 7-8 months and the female cats at 6-7 months.
