August 22 is National Bring Your Cat to the Vet Day!

August 20, 2015

Cats age more rapidly than humans. A cat reaches the approximate human age of 15 during its first year, and then 24 at age 2. Each year thereafter, they age approximately four “cat years” for every calendar year. So your 8-year-old cat would be 48 in human years.Veterinary care is crucial because a lot can happen in four “cat years,” which is why yearly visits are so important. Did you bring your cat to see your vet this year? (Source: AAFP)
