"A kitten is the delight of the household; all day long a comedy is played out by an incomparable actor."

--Champfleury (Jules François Felix Fleury-Husson), French art critic & novelist, 1820-1889

    Still don't know what to call the kitten? Don't worry; life usually brings you the right name for cats. You know of my little Vixen, who lived to be 24. Now I have a Captain Roughy, a Gilligan, and a Matilda Stormkitty. They're called Cap'n Boo, Gilly, and Mattie for short. Just like children, all our cats end up with both names and nicknames!

    Cat-Human Age Equivalencies

    Cat-Human Age Equivalencies

    "How old is my kitten in people years?" It's not the commonly used dog-years equivalency of 7 dog years = 1 human year. A kitten goes through an entire human childhood and adolescence in his first year! Here's a chart that will take you through your kitten's first year of life, as far as his mental development goes:

    Cat's Age Human Age
    1 month 5-6 months
    2 months 9-10 months
    3 months 2-4 years
    4 months 5-6 years
    5 months 8-9 years
    6 months 10-15 years
    8 months 15 years
    1 year 15-24 years

    Although their cognitive development is only that of a child entering school, a female kitten can get pregnant by age 4 months, having her first litter at age 6 months. Most veterinarians these days recommend spaying or neutering a cat as soon as that cat is at least 2 pounds in weight, rather than going by age. This prevents the cat from ever reaching their time of sexual maturation, which we humans experience as adolescence. Your cat may still go through the awkwardness of a human teenager, but at least after being "fixed" she won't be coming into heat or spraying urine everywhere around your house!
