You may have heard the rule of thumb that a dog’s age is seven times the age of a human. What about cats?

The American Association of Feline Practitioners classifies our aging cats as:

“mature” or middle age (7-10 years);

“senior” (11-14 years) and;

“geriatric” (15+ years). 

Two of the most important things for your senior cat are regular vet visits and weight control. 

Your cat may also need more warmth and comfort as she ages.
