Setting the stage for a kitten or a puppy, we rarely think about how many years he will live with us. We laugh watching the antics of a puppy or kitten, proudly watch as he grows up, flourishes, and not notice how our Pets get old, decrepit and, finally, comes "time". Age of animals is short-lived. Sooner or later we have to part with them. How many years of our lives will be light happy fluffy beauty in the house? Or maintain devotion to dogs? "Animal age" largely depends on the conditions of keeping and feeding a pet. Cats and dogs, which are properly looked after, properly fed, protected from disease (carry out preventive vaccination and deworming) live longer than stray animals of the same species. However, not all Pets live longer than their relatives in the wild. The opposite trend is observed with owners of exotic animals. Many animals give birth, not really knowing how to properly care for them, and this greatly shortens their life in the house. Cats
These furry beauties with soft paws can stay with us in 10-15 years. But this figure is very approximate. In my practice, met the cats, which celebrated its 25th anniversary. Although 25 years is not the limit for cats. In the Guinness book of world records has an entry about the cat-statue from the UK, lived for 34 years. And the cat sissy from Austin, posthumously received the status of the old cat. He was born in August 1967 and died the day of his 38 years. Dogs
Depends not only on care but also on the breed. Here you can identify the pattern: the larger the dog the less the life expectancy. For example, dogs of the Chihuahua breed will be close to their owners from 15 to 17 years, and this is the biggest dog breed great Dane just seven to nine years. However, these numbers are also relative, and records of longevity recorded in dogs. For almost 30 years (29 years 5 months) lived Australian dog named Blue. Almost all her life, she helped his owner Holly Forest to graze the cows and sheep. There are centenarians in Russia. In the Nizhny Novgorod region, the city Vaci lives Laika, whose age is 21 years. Parrots
compared to dogs and cats, parrots can live near humans much longer. As in dogs, the duration of life of the parrot depends on the size of the bird. The larger the parrot, the more he meted out on life's journey. The average life expectancy of parrots is around 50-60 years. Medium-sized parrots rarely live up to 45 years, and 10-15 years. The oldest parrot in the world is Charlie the parrot that belonged to Winston Churchill and living in one of the British greenhouses. His age is 104 years. Rodents
rodents Life is short and fleeting. Mice live a year or two. Rats also short-lived, and usually live two to three years. Hamsters do not live more than three years. Life expectancy of Guinea pigs is somewhat larger than other small rodents – six to eight years. Of course, there are animals that delight their owners more time. At the moment the history of the famous Guinea pig that lived for 15 years. Chinchillas live an average of 12-15 years. But there are times when some individuals survive to 20 years. Champions in the wild
Whale sharks, which are the largest fish in the world, can live up to 100 years. This record beat red sea urchins. Life can reach 200 years. There are known cases when in Aquariums sea urchins live more than 50 years. But all of these Champions do not even dreamed of the possibility of jellyfish Turritopsis Nutricula. She is the only immortal creature on Earth. In the mid 1990-ies scientists found that these tiny jellyfish, when their life is coming to an end, they curl up into a "ball". After that they die and come back to "child" stage of a polyp and begin to re-grow.
