Senior Cats: A Few Things To Keep In Mind

Change in diet

Your cat's dietary needs may change as they age. Talk to your vet about a senior cat diet that will help them stay healthy.

Increased water intake

Senior cats may not be able to drink as much water as they used to, so it's important to make sure they have access to fresh water at all times.

Reduced activity

Senior cats may not be as active as they used to be, so it's important to provide them with plenty of comfortable places to rest.


Senior cats may not be able to groom themselves as well as they used to, so you may need to help them brush their fur and clean their ears.

Behavior changes

Senior cats may experience some behavior changes, such as becoming more clingy or less active. Be patient and understanding as they adjust to their new age.

Pain management

Senior cats may experience pain due to arthritis or other health problems. Talk to your vet about pain management options.

Love and attention

Most of all, your senior cat needs your love and attention. Spend time with them, cuddle them, and let them know how much you love them.
