What is the life span of a cat
10 to 25 yrs depending on if they go outside and how well their health is maintained.
Dear GeorgeCuda,A question like this comes up occasionally on Ask.com...Although the average life span is around fifteen years, the Guinness Book of Records records a cat named Creme Puff who lived to be 38 years and 3 days.And then, here is an article from 2011 about a cat in Wales named Lucy (complete with photo!); she was 39 years old then, and still goes out into the garden to patrol for mice! I poked around a bit, but found nothing about whether Lucy is still with us now in 2013...www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1344271/Can-Lucy-39-really-oldest-cat-world.html
In normal circumstances a cat lives only about two years -- but they do it nine times.
