Cat life stages

Do you know the life stages of a kitty? New guidelines formed by the AAHA and AAFP (American Association of Feline Practitioners) present the following:

-          Kitten:  birth to 6 months old

-          Junior: 7 months to 2 years old

-          Prime: 7 months to 6 years old

-          Mature: 7 to 10 years old

-          Senior: 11 to 14 years old

-          Geriatric: 15 years +

This makes a 21 year old kitty the equivalent of a 100 year old human.

  1. And then we say that cats have nine lives. I wonder why that is!
