What Is The Average Indoor Cat Lifespan?
Generally, an indoor cat’s lifespan is more than its outdoor counterpart by a good 10-12 years, for obvious reasons. The average lifespan of an indoor cat is 15 to 20 years and is determined by a number of factors including breed, diet, lifestyle, and veterinary care.
Can You Ensure A Long Life For Your Cat?
The life span of cats is observed to be shortened due to trauma and its repercussions — situations in which a cat is more likely to experience outdoors. The best way to ensure your cat’s long life is to keep it safe from the hazards of accidents and wild animals that the outdoors bring along.
Proper diet and exercise help in maintaining your cat’s long and healthy life as it wards off obesity, and in turn, diabetes, liver diseases, arthritis, and breathing issues.
Also, make sure to have your cat checked by the vet on time to prevent and treat problems well in time.
