It’s a Cat’s Life!

We’ve all heard that cats are supposed to have nine lives, but probably don’t know the reasoning behind it. Cats actually have highly developed inner ears, which equips them with an excellent sense of balance. This feature, along with their small size and flexible lightweight body, enables them to land on their feet with amazing agility from quite a height. These key attributes obviously help cats to survive situations that would probably kill humans and other animals. So, rather than nine lives, our feline friends appear to have one long life!

Cats can live for around fifteen to twenty years or even longer, providing they are in good health. Cats that stay in the house with supervised outdoor time are not exposed to traffic accidents, attacks by other cats and dogs and poisoning, as those who roam freely are. Feral cats have the added problem of malnutrition, due to a poor and irregular diet. It is thought that Manx and Siamese cats live longer than other pedigree cats. However, the longest-lived cat on record is a tabby cat, puss, which died in 1939 in Devon, England, the day after his thirty-sixth birthday!
