Cats vs dogs: Which one lives longer?

Find out which one lives longer than the other, cats or dogs?

Are you a cat lover or a dog lover? Which ever you are, the truth is we get attached to our pets, and we want to spend so much time with them. Sadly, animals don’t live forever. Cats and dogs, especially, get old and die.

However, you should know that cats live longer than dogs. There are many reasons for this.

Cats.com writes that “On average, a cat will live between fifteen and twenty years, whereas the life expectancy of dogs is much shorter than a cat, usually around ten to twelve years. Some cats and dogs do live longer than the average.”

The site goes on to say that when the record books were investigated, “the oldest cat on record lived until 38 years of age, whereas the oldest dog on record lived to the ripe old age of 31.”
