What age is a mature cat

Hello Kat,

I have always had cats as pets,I have been lucky enough to own 5 cats over the years. I am a cat lover,I am getting a little older and am now a great grandmother to this beautiful rescue cat. I am very lucky to have had such great cats. I have one cat my husband and I rescued from a shelter, we were told he was almost a year old and he is so full of life, he is a ball of fun and very fast, he is a very beautiful cat with a very stunning look. I have another cat we recently adopted, she is a lovely feline with a very sweet personality, I had to get her a friend as she was alone, she is a gorgeous little girl with a very beautiful face with a very sweet personality. These are the two I have and they are the best ones I have ever had. I do have one cat I have had for over 10 years, she is now almost 4, she took a very long time to get used to me and anyone else in the house as she is a very shy cat. She is a very beautiful cat with beautiful green eyes, she is also very fast and very playful.

My question is how old is a mature cat and what age is a mature cat? Is there a certain age you can say a cat is a mature cat? I know it depends on the cat, I was told they are mature when they are 10 years old, but I do not know when they mature. My question is how old is a mature cat?

Thanks Kat.

Hi there,

I always have had cats and have owned 9 cats in total in my life, I have had a few younger cats and a few that were older than 10 years old. I would say that cats are mature from the time they are 5 years old.

I do not know what age is a mature cat, I would say that a mature cat is 5 years old.

Good luck,

We’ve known for many years that it takes intact sex hormones to grow naturally, with skeleton and ligaments and tendons all in harmony.
