Senior cat care

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

senior-catMore cats are living longer than their nine lives because of  better veterinary care. These cats may need a little extra assistance as they age.  To make life easier for a senior cat, provide a comfortable cat bed and a warm spot because older cats feel a chill more often.  If your house has multiple levels, keep a litter box on each level.  Arrange furniture in such as way that it will help your cat reach his favorite place above the floor.  Play with your cat often to keep his mind and body active.  Take your senior cat to the vet a little more often to detect any problems before they develop into something serious.  Make sure that your cat drinks plenty of water. To encourage him, use a shallow bowl and fill it often. You will have many good years caring for your senior cat!
