Q: Q: When does my cat become a “senior” pet?

 

A: The first signs of aging in dogs and cats are usually a general ‘slowing down’ with decreased levels of activity and stamina and a tendency to sleep more. Such signs may manifest at as early as 5 years of age in the giant breeds, whilst small terrier breeds can remain youthful until the age of 10 or even older. There is not such a broad size range in cats, and most will reach the golden years at around 8 years or so, but cats who enjoy a good level of exercise and keep a healthy figure can often remain sprightly for much longer.
