INCREASING HEALTH PROBLEMS IN
CATS WITH AGE
Cats begin to suffer from the diseases mainly when they
reach the age of ten. Cats are amazingly cute and provide you with the same
affection you provide them with. If the cats suffer from the diseases because of
the increasing age then they need proper care and attention. As the age of cats
increase, a proper diet and proper medical care is required so that they could
live a long life. The life span of cats is usually short but if they are given a
proper care, diet and attention they could live upto sixteen years quite easily.
Problems of Aging
The health of cats starts deteriorating with increasing age
as it is with humans. You can figure out that as the age of your cats increases they
get lazier and love to lie down and their activeness diminishes. As they become
lazy so to speak as they grow older, their muscles seem to get tired and it is
not possible to do the activities such as jumping and walking in an active
manner as they used to do when they were young.
With the increasing age their smelling power and tendency to eat
also decreases that leads to loss of appetite. The cats are unable to eat well
with the increasing age as their teeth start deteriorating. The increasing age
also affects the drinking habits of cats as well and they drink less and urinate
more. If the age of your cat is also increasing and it has started facing the
same problems then you should consult the vet doctor as soon as possible.
