Caring for a senior cat isn’t the same as caring for a kitten or even caring for an adult cat. This isn’t something that I really gave much thought to until I started to age myself. Have you ever noticed that foods you used to eat years ago now upset your stomach? Have you noticed that your sleep patterns are changing? Have you noticed a few more aches and pains than you had at 25? Guess what? Your cat changes as they age too.
Caring for a Senior Cat
Colors is our senior cat. We’re not sure of her exact age because we got her at the shelter but we believe she is about twelve years old. As she gets older, she has a bit less energy. I totally understand how she feels. I have less energy myself these days. I know that caring for a senior cat is different than caring for our other two. In doing a bit of research, I discovered a helpful resource that gathers information about your pet into one place.
petMD.com is the world’s largest digital resource for pet health and wellness information. Founded in 2008 to provide pet owners support beyond the vet office, petMD has quickly become the go-to resource for millions of pet parents across the globe. The website maintains a comprehensive library of more than 10,000 pet health articles, all written and approved by petMD’s network of trusted veterinarians.
Just a few of the articles I found that deal with caring for a senior cat are:
- 5 tips to keep your senior cat healthy
- Playing with your senior cat
- Common emergencies for senior cats
- The agony of arthritis
I’m glad that I have this resource available to learn more about caring for a senior cat. It’s a great place to start learning and if I have additional questions, I can always ask my vet at our next appointment. You can even sign up for the Cat Care Journal to receive monthly expert tips and stage-by-stage advice to help care for your cats or kittens.
You can visit the Cat Care Center and use the Cat Age Timeline to find articles and information that pertain to your cat at that specific life stage.
