March 2014 – Elderly Cats

Great tips on how to care for your aging older cat.

Just like an older car, aging cats need more maintenance to keep them in good running order. It’s a great idea to start a file on your computer or buy an exercise book to keep track of changes. Things to note:

  1. Weight – when you live with a cat, dog or human(!) and see them every day, we don’t always notice gradual weight changes….. [Click “Read more” button below to read full newsletter]
  2. Diet – it is important to put your cat on an Senior cat diet from 8 years onwards….
  3. Water – is your cat drinking more or less water than usual? ….
  4. Fussy Eating – if Puss’s eating habits change this should be noted….
  5. Movement – is Puss moving around well or getting up slowly? ….
  6. Litter box – any changes? ….

With a little effort, we can give your beloved cat a very happy retirement years and very importantly find any changes early, treat what can be treated and if your cat suffers from a disease, we can make sure we keep Puss pain free and as happy as possible for as possible as humanly possible
