When Is My Cat Considered a Senior?
Throughout your cat’s lifespan, his or her nutritional needs will change. Knowing when your cat is considered a senior is important because he or she will need food formulated for seniors. Just like humans, cats have an average lifespan, but individual cats can vary greatly in the rate at which they age. On average, a cat may be considered a senior between the ages of seven and 10.
However, it’s possible for one cat to be a senior at age eight, while another may still be frisky at age nine. You’ll need to watch out for the signs of aging to determine if your cat might be a senior. Senior cats tend to have less energy, sleep more, and have trouble walking up or down the stairs. Senior cats may also develop behavioral changes, and have unintentional weight loss or weight gain.
