Senior Cat Care

Wednesday, June 19, 2019
posted by Jim Murphy

More 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. Or do what I did for my cat Millie, get a filtered water fountain. She loves it and the running water encourages her to drink often.

You will have many good years caring for your senior cat!
