Ages 1 year – 2 years: At this point your cat can be viewed a young adult. Your cat will be entering their full emotional maturity and generally their full growth. You can still train your cat during this time, since they are still developing their personality.
Ages 2-6 years: At this point your cat is a full adult. Your cat will be in the prime of their health and their disposition are well established.
Ages 6-10 years: During these years your cat is becoming a more mature adult (think middle aged). Here is the time when you might see health issues arise like kidney disease or diabetes. They are more likely to gain weight, and become less active during these years of their life.
Ages 11-14 years: During these years your cat is a senior. Here is the time when cats’health usually deteriorate as their lifespan comes to an end. Different cats have different lifespans, so 14 years is an approximation.
Some cats live longer than 14 years or shorter than 14 years, which can depend on the breed and the health of your cat.
