### How many cats die per year?

It is not possible to determine a clear number of cats that die per year. There are thousands of cats who may die in shelters each year but there is not a record of how many cats die as pets or strays. One estimate states that approximately 144,000 cats die each day in the world. That would be a total of 52,560,000 cats each year.
