How long are cat years
Conversion table: This is how old your cat is in human years
Over the years, not only do we humans get older, our cats also age. But our house tigers have a completely different rhythm - and are teenagers after just a few months. Your animal world tells you how old your cat is in human years.
Cats age faster than humans
So far there are no studies that can scientifically prove the aging process of cats in human years. On the whole, however, animal lovers agree: Our house tigers age particularly quickly in the first few months and years.
Cats become sexually mature fairly quickly and grow rapidly after birth. After eight months, the cat's age corresponds to a human age of 13 years, a one year old cat would be 15 years old in human years, i.e. in the middle of puberty.
Cat age is not proportional
Once the cat is fully grown, its aging process also slows down. Many velvet paws have already reached their full size after a year, but the rapid aging slows down only after the second year of life. From then on, each cat year is roughly four human years.
In this cat age table you can see how old your darling is roughly in human years:
|Cat age||Human age|
|1 month||6 months|
|2 months||1.5 years|
|3 months||4 years|
|6 months||ten years|
|8 months||13 years|
|1 year||15 years|
|2 years||24 years|
|3 years||28 years|
|4 years||32 years|
|5 years||36 years|
|6 years||42 years|
|7 years||46 years|
|8 years||50 years|
|9 years||52 years|
|ten years||56 years|
|12 years||64 years|
|14 years||72 years|
|16 years||80 years|
|18 years||88 years|
|20 years||96 years|
Cat behavior not always attributed to age
However, the behavior of the cat is not always due to its age. Similar to us humans, adults can still behave childishly and vice versa.
How old a cat gets also depends on its husbandry, diet and other factors. Only recently the oldest living tomcat in the world died at the age of 31 (human) years.
