There comes a time when our cats have reached a certain age whereby s/he begins to move slower and be less active than before. It is at this point, we will find our once energetic, playful cat for so many years becomes a calm, thoughtful and understanding friend that sits by your side or curled around your lap or feet. Hence, it is our responsibility as cat owners to understand this particular life stage and provide special attention & comfort to our cats to live a longer, healthier life in his or her golden years.
