Thread Name: BS: Life Expectancy in Cats
Subject: RE: BS: Life Expectancy in Cats
Indoor cats tend to live longer than outdoor cats. One of my cats was six months shy of her 20th birthday when she developed a tumor in her abdomen. My other cat made it only to 13 and developed lymphoma.

One of my grans had cats that typically lived into their late teens and twenties. The persian was 20, the siamese was 21, and the off the street stray was 17.
