I have a cat that is three years old. How long can he live?

Depends on if he's an indoor or outdoor cat--outdoor cats generally live to be about 10-12, but indoor cats can live into their 20s if they are not sick! The problem is that many cats do not exhibit any symptoms of illness until they are really sick, and by then it may be too late to save them, so you should take him for regular check-ups with the veterinarian. But a healthy indoor cat can be your companion for a long time.
