Average life span for an indoor cat is 15-20 years. Your cats not old. My oldest so far lived to be almost 18. There are cats on record that lived past their 20's. Lot of years still ahead for your cat.

Your cat is not old, but he is an adult. Cats do not age as humans do. I have a friend whose cat is 19 and that cat is old.
