How Old Are Our Cats?

This is a pretty accurate reflection of how big cats age as well.  By the end of 2013

92 of our 111 exotic animals are over the age of 12 (in their 60s)

76 of those are over the age of 15  (in their mid 70s)

and 19 of those are over the age of 20  (over 100)

This is well beyond how long they are designed to live in the wild and much older than most zoo cats. This is a testament to the excellent animal care we provide, but we are dealing with many more age related illnesses and are losing more of our big cat friends every year.
