“Aging is a natural process. Although many complex physical changes accompany advancing years, age in and of itself is not a disease. Even though many conditions that affect older cats are not correctable, they can often be controlled. The key to making sure your senior cat has the healthiest and highest quality of life possible is to recognize and reduce factors that may be health risks, detect disease as early as possible, correct or delay the progression of disease, and improve or maintain the health of the body's systems.” (Vet.Cornell.edu)
Just as we do, cats experience behavior changes as their age advances. For many people, senior cats are uncharted territory, but learning more about their unique needs can help keep your cat happy and healthy.
