What are cat years

A cat year is one year that a cat lives, according to the World Cat Federation. But is it still possible to tell a cat's age?

The answer is yes, though it's trickier than you think. Here's what you need to know about cat years, and how much you can really tell about a cat's health from her age.

How Many Cat Years Are in a Human Lifetime?

The average human lifespan is between 80 and 85 years, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That's a lot of cat years.

In fact, the average human lifespan is a little more than 2,150 cat years.

And that's not even the most interesting fact about cat years.

Cat (Felis catus), also called house cat or domestic cat, is a member of the family Felidae in the order Carnivora. It is also the smallest member of that family, which includes lions, tigers, and pumas. What is the lineage of cats? Studies suggest that there have been two lineages of cats.
