What is the average life expectancy of an indoor cat?
According to vets the typical lifespan ranges somewhere between 13 and 17 years. However, there are some cases for a cat to live to at least 20. In fact, it always depends on the individual cat.
Of course we want our beloved furry friends to spend with us as many years as possible. Though, no one is eternal and even cats with their nine lives.
