Senior cats, typically aged 11 and above, have different needs than younger cats. Keep an eye on changes in their behavior and health.
Older cats need a diet rich in proteins and low in fats. Special senior cat food can be beneficial to cater to their nutritional requirements.
Regular veterinary visits are crucial for early detection of common senior cat health issues like kidney disease, diabetes, and arthritis.
Keeping your senior cat active can help maintain healthy body weight and muscle tone. Encourage gentle play and stimulating activities.
Regular grooming can help spot skin conditions early. Good oral health prevents dental diseases common in older cats.
Make sure your home is senior cat-friendly. Provide easy access to resources like litter boxes, food, and water.
Above all, shower your senior cat with love and affection. Their emotional wellbeing is as important as their physical health.
