HOW LONG DO CATS LIVE?
How long do cats live if you take steps to extend their lifespan?
At How Long Do Cats Live, we believe that to ensure that your cat will have a long lifespan, there are numerous steps that a diligent owner should take and many factors to consider.
The breed of the cat, it’s genetic makeup, and the environment in which it is raised all play a part.Perhaps most important to how long cats live is their nutrition.
Each stage of a cat’s life, from kittenhood to old age, has an appropriate food type, because the nutritional needs of a cat change throughout its life.
You wouldn’t feed a human infant pizza, right? Likewise, you wouldn’t feed a growing teenager baby food, nor would you feed a 90-year old sirloin steak.
So it is with cats.There are several great brands of cat food that are specially formulated to correspond with your cats current age.
Hill’s Science Diet and Royal Canin are two well-respected brands that specifically cater to the different stages in our pets’ lives, both cats and dogs, and both are highly suggested.
Be sure to select a type of food that is in agreement not only with your cat’s age, but also any special dietary needs that might arise from various health problems or possible concerns (such as obesity or urinary tract infections).
