All about Spanky
When people adopt a new cat or are thinking about buying a cat they often want to know how old that cat is. If the cat is a kitten this is usually easy. The original owner should know how old the kitten was or if you bring the kitten to a veterinarian, the vet should be able to tell how old the kitten is with a reasonable degree of accuracy. If good records were kept from kitten-hood or previous adoptions, again this is an easy task. The problem occurs when you are considering getting an adult cat whose age and/or history are unknown.
The truth is, is that it’s very difficult to accurately tell how old an adult cat is just by looking at it. A five year old cat can look very similar to an eight year old cat and a two year old cat looks very similar to an 8 year old cat. Sometimes we can make educated guesses as to how old a cat is by looking at its teeth, but even this can be very misleading. The condition of a cat’s teeth has a lot to do with its environment specifically what it eats. A cat that eats hard kibble will have very different looking teeth than a cat that gets fed out of a can. Indoor cats have different looking teeth than stray/feral cats. There is also genetic variability that helps determine what a cat’s teeth look like. Basically there’s no real pattern to look for that helps determine age.

We got Spanky from the local SPCA, which I foster kittens for until they are old enough to be adopted out. I had his Mom and his siblings from the time they were 4 days old. He is a very playful kitten and he likes to play with his new friends, Daisy ( a border collie) and Smokey ( other cat in the house). Spanky also likes koosh balls. He is very loving and likes to sleep on my pillow at night.. He already fits into the family, and we all love him. Spanky is growing up now and is a Great Cat.....
