How good are you at converting cat years to human years?
Give this one a whirl:
Q: A cat is 10 years old, how old is this in human years?
The answer…ta dah…is 56 years. How many of you got caught out by the ‘one cat year equals seven human years’ formula?
Actually, converting cat years to human years is anything but straightforward. For example, if a 10-year old cat lives exclusively outdoors, their human-equivalent age becomes 88 rather than 56. This is a great illustration of just one of the many factors that impact a cat’s life expectancy.
