How to tell cat's age

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Can any of you who breed tell me how I can tell my young cat's age? IF he did belong to the owner who said I could keep him (long story) he would be over 2 years old, BUT he looked like he was under a year when I got him and still, 4 months later, acts like my Ben did before he hit two years.

Here he is on my computer desk shortly after I adopted him and then now!

Ben is my Tabby and he is 2 1/2 years and not that big but cobby!

Once they are a year or 2 its kinda hard to tell. I know when we took our first cat (full grown neutered male) to the vet he had to estimate his age between 2-3 yrs old. The vet can kinda go by the teeth; maybe size or how many to estimate the age.

You can't go by how a cat acts (for age) because each has his own personality. I adopted a red tabby kitten (4/5 months old) from the shelter and he acted more like an adult cat - very laid back. We think he was a reincarnation of my first cat - lots of similarities and would sorta explain the lack of acting like a 4/5 month old kitten.

BTW the kitten was very healthy - just laid back and more "grownup" then normal. And my 14 yr old rex sometimes gets a "burst of energy" and races around the house like he's 3 yrs old!

From those pictures and of the stories you have shared about him he does look quite young. 2-3 years I'm guessing.
