Cat Aging Indicators
General cat health and other conditions can give a better indication of a of cat years versus human years.
As the old saying goes, your only as old as you feel and we believe this can be the same for our feline companions.
This is just a general guide and should no way be used as gospel and always best to consult your local vet.
Did you know that an outdoor cat will age much quicker than an indoor cat? Yeah, sounds pretty obvious but do you know why this is the case?
Outdoor cats can be subject to a plethora of environmental health risks and can come in contact with other threatening animals.
Being in altercations with other animals or cats can cause a great deal of stress when the animal is in its fight of flight state.
Over time this does have an aging effect on your feline friend. Stress is a big killer with us too!
Teeth are one of the most important aspects to general cat health but they can be a good indicator of a cats age.
During the early kitten state of their life they develop their baby teeth like humans, these (deciduous teeth) are replaced with adult teeth around the 3 to 4 month mark.
In older cats, the amount of staining (tartar) is also an indicator of age that veterinarians use. However, with pets’ teeth cleaning products readily available, tartar may not be a good indicator depending on the diligence of the cat’s caregiver in providing a dental care program.
Along with a buildup of discharge their eyes may not be as alert and can have a faint cloudy appearance. This is usually evident in older cats 9-11+ mark.
The severity of coat white spots and patches will differ from cat to cat. So it’s important you do everything in your power to promote a healthy coat in aging cats.
So it’s important to be vigilant even in the early stages if you want to prevent your cat from becoming pregnant.
