What is cats life span? Do they show any symptoms that their time has come?

An average cats lifespan is 14 years but as with humans they can live longer or shorter than that. It just all depends on the health of the cat. Some people have had cats live for 20 years. Most animals when there time has come will go off somewhere to be alone to die in peace.

My aunt had a cat that lived to be 21 years old. I think it lived to that ripe old age because she only fed it table food, no cat food.

I have sen some cats live up to 20 and more years.. Usually they sleep a lot at that time .My neighbor has tow cats, brother and sister, who are 16 years of age and one is still pretty active. Some cats die peacefully and some get sick. I have two cats tht are 6 years old. One always hope tht they live for a long time, and that is why I always manage time with each one, to brush, play sing to and snuggle with. Flamenca

with the first cat we had(Pusser), she lived to teh age of 18. she could walk and do things normally for many years, but during the last year of her life she started to have trouble walking. then before the last visit to the vet( where she was given a kind release to her suffering) she could not walk, see, stand, or even talk or purr, she was very frail in her looks, and had lost a great deal of weight.

My first cat Hershey Park lived to be 19. She'd been fairly healthy up to the end. She did get fleas really bad and she wouldn't be able to jump and run as much as she'd down before. She ended up having a stroke and losing control of her hind legs before passing away.
