“It’s not the cat life, it’s the life of the animal,” says Cat Life Specialist Julie McKean.
“It does not necessarily follow the same life cycle as a human.”
But, in fact, cat life expectancy is far higher than that of humans, according to a study published in the journal Scientific Reports.
The study, conducted by the University of Washington’s Department of Animal Health Sciences, looked at the life expectancy of more than 1,000 feral cats in the Puget Sound region.
“We have the highest life expectancy for any cat in the world,” said McKeans study lead author Lisa Stoll, a postdoctoral research associate at the UW’s College of Veterinary Medicine.
“A lot of people are familiar with how life expectancy compares to that of dogs and cats.
However, we found that the life span of cats is much longer than that.”
For the study, the researchers looked at 1,500 cats in an urban area of Seattle, Washington.
All of the cats lived in one of two environments, either a barn, a home with a pet, or a shelter.
In addition, the study also looked at life expectancy at the age of six months, and age at six years for the cats at death.
“The most important thing to understand is that cats are very similar to people in terms of how long they live,” said Stoll.
“There are very, very few things that we can predict, but there are things we can do to help our cats live longer lives.”
Life expectancy is an important factor for cats, as it is the amount of time a cat spends in a specific environment that has an impact on how well it can survive in the wild.
“If you look at the average life span for a cat, that’s around 70 to 80 years,” said Dr. Stephen Burt, the senior author of the study.
“That’s much longer life span than a dog, for example, and much longer lifespan than a human.
It’s a very, well-documented and well-understood fact that cats live much longer in the outdoors than they do in a home environment.”
In fact, cats live a life expectancy longer than dogs, but it’s not always the case.
“For the cats, life expectancy may vary depending on their individual environment,” said Burt.
For example, it could be that a cat may live a few years longer in a shelter or a barn compared to a home, where it would be easier to raise.
The researchers also found that cats in a pet shelter tended to have shorter life expectancies, at the very least.
“They tend to live longer because of their companion cats,” said Martin Gertner, co-author of the paper.
“And then you can see how life span differs in shelters compared to houses.
It depends on the number of companion cats.
Life span is a measure of how much time a human or animal lives on average, and a lot of research has focused on this in the last decade. “
In addition, a shelter may have fewer cats than a home and that is also important, so it’s important to think about what your cats’ life span is, and it may vary by shelter.”
Life span is a measure of how much time a human or animal lives on average, and a lot of research has focused on this in the last decade.
Studies have shown that pets, humans and people tend to be at different life spans, as animals tend to go through a much longer period of life, than humans.
“I think we should be thinking about how we can help our animals live longer, and to help them live better,” said Gertnner.
“Cats are very good at looking out for us and protecting us.”
