6Follow these Tips to Provide Your Senior Cat with the Proper Care
The needs of cats vary as they age. Therefore, providing your cat with unconditional love and constant care is essential in every stage of its life.
Accordingly, senior cats require exceptional care, which stands on four pillars: attention, vigilance, regular checks and wellness tests.
Ultimately, the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) Senior Care Guidelines, categorizes cats as follows:
Mature or middle-aged between 7 and 10 years old
Senior between 11 and 14 years old
Geriatric from 15 to 25 years old
Unfortunately, most people treat all kinds of cats, including tea cup kittens, mini cats and munchkin cats, the same way without due regard to this classification.
Although cats are notorious for hiding their pain and illness, most cat breeds are susceptible to various diseases. For this reason, you have to monitor the cat’s daily habits and behaviors in order to approach any problem prior to its aggravation.
