Typically cats weigh between 2.5 and 7 kg (5.5–16 pounds); however, some like the Maine Coon can exceed 11.3 kg (25 pounds). Some cats once reached 23 kg (50 pounds) because of overfeeding. This is so bad for your cat’s health – making them more likely to become diabetic, especially in a castrated male cat – can be prevented through diet and exercise (running), in particular. for cats that are always indoors. In contrast, there are also very small cats (less than 1.8 kg – 4.0 pounds).
In the domestic mode, cats typically live 14 to 20 years, although the oldest cat ever lived 35 years. Domestic cats usually live longer if we don’t let them go out (reduces the risk of fighting injuries and accidents and are more susceptible to illness) and if they are sterilized. Sterilized male cats avoid testicular cancer, and sterilized female cats do not have ovarian cancer, thus reducing the risk of cancers. Feral cats in modern urban environments usually live only two to three years or less. Feral cats in groups may live longer; The British Cat Action Trust has reported the case of a 19-year-old female feral cat. The longest-lived wild cat is “Mark”, raised by the British Cat Protection Charity, and lives up to 26 years old.
