  1. Thank you for this very interesting post!

    Thank you for this excellent post. Mom says she got good information from it. Our three older kitties (14, 9 and 9), who are all healthy, still only see the VET once a year unless they are ill. Our vet has not suggested an additional visit. They do a Senior Pet Exam when a cat reaches ten years old, and we have never missed any of those. The three older ones do sleep more but seem to get plenty of exercise and are in excellent shape. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

      Thank you for sharing. I found this interesting because some things I knew; some I had heard and forgotten; and other info was totally new. I’m glad that cats are living longer. That means we humans are doing something right, but there’s obviously a lot more we can do.
