How old are cats in human years?

Is it the same as dogs? I think cats live longer than dogs so they must age in human years more slowly than dogs. I've heard of cats living to be 20. I had one that was 19. The longest I've had a dog live is 12 years. Someone told me that each year has a different value. For example, if a dog is 1 year in human years, he may be 7 dog years but when he's 2 human years he may be like 10 dog years.

  • I was wondering the same thing. My Aunt has had 3 cats that lived a LONG time. One lived until 19yrs and the other until 20yrs. She still has one and she is going on 21 yrs. She is getting very slow and my Aunt knows it's only a matter of time before she has to also be put down but she is making it worth while. I'm curious to see how long she actually lives. Because I know 21yrs for a cat is a long time. Hope someone knows the answer.

  • I believe they are five years to every one of ours and dogs are seven.
