How long can cats live?

On average, indoor cats live from 12-18 years. Indoor cats have extra protections, cat toys, and extra food. Outdoor cats, however, are said to age twice as fast. Outdoor cats face more threats from their environment and have more illnesses so they usually live to about 10 years.

If the maximum age for humans is 100 years, then the maximum age of a cat would be equivalent to 20.8 years. Certain cats have been able to live to over 30! Some say Siamese and Manx breeds can live the longest.
