Just like humans, cats also age. Here we will talk about what happens to your cat during ageing. First, you can see that ageing affects the skin. The coat will lose its shine and white hairs start appears. Sleep patterns often change as many older cats sleep more.
Besides that, their muscles and bones will become weaker and the immune system does not work as well as before. Hearing and sight deteriorate and your pet’s memory may be affected. Internal organs such as the heart, liver and the kidneys also can deteriorate.
You can try to keeping your cat mentally active; this can keep them feeling young. For instance, you can try hiding titbits for them to find round the house (make it easy at first to avoid frustration).
However, there is no need to too worry about this, as the improvements in medicine, there are many treatments available to reduce the worst effects. You should keep in mind that age is not a reason to accept ill health.
