The Feline PKD FAQ -- Answers to Frequently Asked Questions ...
You'd think that would be a simple question, with a simple answer. Unfortunately, every source I've found gives different information: Britanica Online says the lifespan of a domestic cat in captivity is 21 years (in context, this seems to be the maximum age of the vast majority of otherwise healthy cats!!!). The Tidycat website once indicated that the average Russian Blue lives 18 years (I couldn't find a reference to persian lifespan). On the HomeArts Ask the Vet website, Dr.
Bengal cats | Bengal FAQ - Defiant Breeders
Very well, Bengals adapt quickly to all family members and their playful nature makes them excellent companions for children. Here is my son Declan (when he was 2 1/2) with a 10 week old male blue marble. Declan does what most children do, grabs, pulls, and squeezes. And our Bengals just deal with it. Bengals are more tame than most pets if you choose the right breeder.
Frequently Asked Questions
Well I guess that depends on who you talk to--Most farmers who are in the egg producing business will say 2 years.

FAQ's - Flea Insecticides - How to Get Rid of Fleas - What i...
Fleas can be brought into the house on clothes and or legs. They are then attracted to carbon dioxide from your breath, warmth from your body, and vibrations as you walk. They will seek you out to feed on your blood. But they cannot hurt you. In any event, do not panic. All you can do in get out the vacuum cleaner and give the place a good clean, which I am sure you do anyway. If one jumps onto your legs, grab it and make sure you crack it , or snap it, by breaking it in two with your nail.
It's not surprising that so many cat lovers also adore Pharaoh Hounds--they are very "catlike," in both their personality and elegant grace, after all. My short answer to this most frequently asked question is "Yes, BUT..." YES, Pharaohs and a housecats can live in harmony together, BUT caution must be taken at all times. There are countless owners who own both Pharaohs and cats and have never had a problem. It is important the Pharaoh and kitty be raised together.
We have two whole males that live in our cattery (see the facilities page). All of our kittens are raised 'underfoot' and typically spend their first month in a nest under our bed! We wish it were possible to keep everyone together all of the time, but in order to practice 'controlled breeding', and since whole males tend to fight, it's necessary to have things arranged as they are. As can be seen in the pictures, the two boys in the cattery have quite a lot of space and are well taken care of.
The Shelter holds these animals for as long as possible depending on the overcrowding conditions existing as the Shelter at the time.
DogLogic Great Dane FAQ's
The average life span of most giant breeds is about 8-10 years. I know of Danes living to 10-12 years, but right now unfortunately that is the exception rather than the rule. There are a few health problems which afflict the Great Dane breed: growth problems (HOD, PANO and OCD), hip dysplasia (OFA and Penn-Hip tests), and bloat/GDV/torsion are primary concerns. Wobblers, thyroid problems, and problems with the eyes (CERF test) also appear in the breed. Se our HEALTH links for more info:

Kerry Blue Terrier Frequently Asked Questions
When this question was posed to the 300+ KB-L subscribers, many good examples of Kerries, cats,and other species of critters co-habitation were given, while just a few thought that their Kerries would never tolerate a cat under any conditions. Kerries and cats would seem to be able to co-exist in the same household and even become genuinely fond of each other with some guidelines.
