There is a direct correlation between cat lifespan and level of veterinary care that they receive. On average, it is reported that cats live around 15 years. However, we frequently track this for our interest and at Cat Care Clinic, where our clients are diligent about regular veterinary visits (including preventative care and early treatment and management of chronic conditions). Our patients often live comfortably up to 20+ years. Our eldest cat lived to be 28 years old. Of course, genetics, living conditions (indoor vs outdoor) and obesity can all factor into a cat’s lifespan. Quality of life often outweighs quantity of life, and we strive for the best of both!
