  • Q:

    How can you find out how old your cat is?

    A:

    A cat's age can be estimated by examining its teeth, coat and eyes. Teeth are especially helpful for determining a feline's age, since the presence or absence of baby teeth helps narrow down an age range. Older cats sometimes display more tartar build-up, but if they regularly see a vet for cleaning, this is less reliable. Senior cats can develop white or gray patches of fur.
