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

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:
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!
