    We sometimes speak of a cat's age in terms of human years just to get an idea how old is the cat if it was a human. Let's take an average human life span as 100 years (to keep our maths simple) and a cat's life span as 10 years. This means 1 year of a cat's age is equivalent to (100/10) = 10 years in human age. So, if a cat is 5 years old, this age is equivalent (5x10) = 50 years old in human age, or a middle-aged cat.

    To find out exactly what's is the cat age in human age, dog age, or whatever animal age, just google up the average life span of cat and the desired animal average life span, then do the math.

    it is the way i've got heard it defined: the 1st 3 hundred and sixty 5 days of a cat's existence brings it to the equivalent of a youthful grownup - 25 years. After that, each 3 hundred and sixty 5 days of the cat's existence is kind of such as 5 years of a human's existence. subsequently, a ten-3 hundred and sixty 5 days-previous cat is such as twenty-5 + (10 - a million) x 5 = 70 human years.

    A cat year = 365 days

    A man year = 365 days.

    A year is a year.
