Cat Care

Just how old is your cat in human years?
It was once considered that 1 year in a cats life was equal to 7 human years, but recent research shows that cats don’t mature in quite the same way as people and so there is not an exact age ratio to human years.  Instead, when we look at physical and behavioral changes as cats age, we see that kittens mature quickly to the equivalent of  a human teenager by 1 year of age.  Once mature, cats age less rapidly with about each year equal to 4 human years.
