Is there a way to tell the approximate age of a cat? We adopted a cat from the humane society, they said she is seven, we think she acts older, thoughts.

My veterinarian has commented that my 16yr old female looks more like she is 10yr or 12yr old.


I had a cat that found me (and a forever home) while I was watching a meteor shower.

The vet guess his age to be 7 or 8 years old. They can tell by wear on the teeth.

Yeah, a vet can give you an estimate.


The vet might have better ideas. Once they get past 3 or so it is hard to tell.
