My cat is four years old now. Someone told me that cats do not have a long life span. This made me so sad and worried. I want to know what is the approximate age of cats if they are fit and healthy.
The current Guinness World Record for longest-lived domestic cat belonged to Creme Puff, who lived to be 38 (1967 - 2005). The typical lifespan for indoor domestic cats is estimated at ~15 years.
I've had cats all my life, they are family pets lived to the age of 16 to 18 years old. We have never had a cat live past 20 years, although it is definitely not rare. I recently got a full-blooded Egyptian Mau. I was told his lifespan is over 20 years. I've also got just a little more information on a possible difference in mixed or full blooded. It mostly lived inside.
