Mobility Issues and Your Senior Cat

Mobility Issues and Your Senior Cat

As your cat gets older, she may start experiencing some mobility issues. Seek medical attention to ensure that any pain is managed and that any underlying conditions are treated. You may notice that your cat misses the litter box on occasion and it may be because she has trouble getting in and out of the litter box. You may need to replace the box with one with lower sides and place it a bit closer to where she hangs out so she can get to it quickly. Your cat may have difficulty with stairs so add slip-proof surfaces or ramps to make it easier for her. If she has trouble jumping up to the normal surfaces she uses as a vantage point, add a surface in between to act as a step up such as a chair or low table. Handle your cat carefully. Take care to support her entire body. For more information, contact your veterinarian Oshawa, ON.
