Getting old is never easy, and it is especially difficult for a cat who can’t verbalize her aches and pains. The aging process will no doubt take a toll on your companion, but with some extra love and care, older cats can still live full lives and contribute much joy in their final years in your home. Knowing what to expect as your cats body changes helps you to provide her the proper care and comfort to ensure a healthy quality of life in her later years.
