Choosing the Right Products

As our beloved feline friends enter their senior years, their needs and preferences can change significantly. As a company dedicated to enhancing the lives of pets, PJ Pet Products, based in the UK, understands the importance of adapting to these changes to ensure our aging cats continue to live comfortably and happily. This blog post explores the essential products and considerations for caring for senior cats, focusing on how we can support them through their golden years.

A cat is generally considered senior when it reaches the age of 7 to 10 years. This life stage brings various physical and behavioural changes, including reduced mobility, decreased energy levels, and more time spent indoors. As a result, our senior cats require a different approach to care compared to their younger selves.

Aging cats spend more time sleeping and resting. It’s crucial to provide them with a comfortable, easily accessible bed. Look for beds with orthopaedic support to ease joint pain and low sides for easy entry.

Feeding Bowls

Senior cats may find it challenging to bend down to eat or drink. Elevated bowls can make mealtimes more comfortable, reducing strain on their neck and joints.

Cat Scratching Trees

Contrary to popular belief, older cats still need to scratch for exercise, stress relief, and to maintain claw health. PJ Pet Products offers a range of cat scratching trees, some of which are designed with lower tiers and gentle inclines, perfect for less agile senior cats.

Interactive Toys

Keeping the mind of a senior cat stimulated is as important as physical exercise. Interactive toys can help maintain their cognitive functions and keep them engaged.

Adapting Your Home

Adapting your home to suit the needs of an aging cat is essential. This includes ensuring that all their necessities, such as food, water, and litter boxes, are easily accessible. Consider placing these items on the same floor where your cat spends most of its time to avoid unnecessary stair climbing.

As cats age, their nutritional needs change. Senior cats may require diets lower in calories but higher in fibre, with adequate protein and essential nutrients to maintain muscle mass and overall health. Always consult with your veterinarian to choose the best diet for your senior cat.

Regular Veterinary Check-ups

Regular check-ups are crucial for monitoring the health of senior cats. These visits can help in early detection and management of common age-related issues such as arthritis, kidney disease, or dental problems.

The key to senior cat care is creating a safe, comfortable, and loving environment. This includes giving them plenty of affection, maintaining a routine, and being patient with their changing abilities and behaviours.
