Older cats, colder months
As I write this, I can hear my neighbor’s cat meowing loudly outside on this cold winter’s day.
Pam is a nice cat who for years has roamed the back gardens behind our homes.
Today is different. Pam is determined to be relieved from the bone-chilling cold.
I realize she might be suffering from arthritis because she must be about 10 or 11 years old by now, and cats suffer more from this condition during the winter months.
If your cat is getting up there in age, it is a good reminder to observe if they walk or jump differently during the colder months. If you suspect arthritis, have a chat with your vet. They can help you and your cat live care-free through many more winters.
