Some tips on looking after senior cats so you can give them the best quality of life possible.

Cats usually live longer than dogs. With proper care, an active lifestyle and a bit of luck, they may live more than 20 years. But just like humans, their bodies also suffer wear and tear and deteriorate. So today we’ll teach you some tips on looking after senior cats so you can give them the best quality of life possible.

First, it’s important to take them to the vets for a check-up, at least once a year. Another very important factor is an active lifestyle – obesity and arthritis are two very common problems in elderly cats and that’s why regular exercise is very important.

Cats are creatures of habit, so following the same daily routine is key to their physical, mental and emotional wellbeing, and will help them feel calm and comfortable in their environment.

Feeding is something to pay close attention to, especially in adult cats. In general, from seven years onwards, their metabolism slows down, so they need a lower calorie intake. Furthermore, at this age it’s even more important to feed high-quality, easily digestible proteins to keep them in a good state of health.

It’s also very important to change their water every day to make sure it’s fresh and clean, especially when the cat is old because as they age, their daily water consumption also tends to increase.

But the most important thing of all is to give them lots of love and attention: senior cats can experience changes in their personality and behaviour, such as becoming more dependent or needy. Dedicating time to playing or interacting with your cat and giving her plenty of TLC can help to keep her happy and comfortable. If you follow all these tips, you can help your cat live a long, healthy life.
