Know How Old Your Cat Is?

Did you ever wonder how old your cat really is?  People often say a dog year is equivalent to 7 human years…does the same general principle apply to cats?

When you look at your precious little bundle of fur do you know if you are looking at a teenager or a senior?

Our friends at the Pet Health Network have developed this neat chart to match your kitty’s age to a comparable human age.  Here at Killarney Cat Hospital, our Veterinary team recognizes the importance of respecting the nuances of each stage of life from kitten to geriatric for your furry friend.  If you have any questions about how your cat is aging, please contact any one of our team members to book an appointment.
