Signs of Aging in Cats

Cats will inevitably enter their final years and this period comes with a lot of wear and tear in their bodies. As these cats age, they will experience or will be more prone to a variety of health problems. Since cats are great at hiding their pain or discomfort, cat owners must be observant so they can detect problems early on.

Eye problems

Some senior cats may experience issues with their vision.

Kidney problems

Frequent urination and drinking could be signs your senior cat has kidney issues.

Dental problems

Tooth resorption is a very common oral problem affecting cats. It affects more than 50 percent of them, and cats over five years of age are more likely to experience it. While tooth resorption is painful, a lot of cat owners are not aware that their cats have it because the tooth crown appears normal while the roots decay.
