When is my cat considered a senior? - Prestige Animal Hospital

Cats are technically considered a senior around 11 years old. We tend to do a little bit more care and follow up after the age of seven, though, because a lot of times we can detect early changes as they age, and we want to trend things. So, even though 11 is considered senior, we should be doing at least annual but hopefully biannual as they age over seven years of age.

Well, that's a good question. For the most part, my rule of thumb is any pet who kind of hits that seven to eight-year-old mark is a senior pet. Of course, cats tend to live longer, but I still generally put them in that senior category at seven to eight years of age.
