A Checklist for Senior Cats

Friday, December 1, 2023
posted by Jim Murphy

Our cat Millie is almost 19 years old now. She has good days and bad days. Some days she’s more active, eats more and interacts with us more but there are some days that she’s quiet and doesn’t eat as much. This is to be expected as a cat gets older. Always make sure that her behavior are basically consistent. Ask yourself these questions;

Is she eating?
Is she drinking”
Is she going peeing and pooping normally?
Is she interacting with you like she normally does?
Is she in her normal sleeping spots or is she hiding?
Does she seem content and comfortable?

If any of these answers is “no,” I would take her to the vet for a checkup.

Pet MD has written an excellent article on how to make a home safe and accessible for senior cats.
