#HillsPets Helps Your Cats Age Well

At Phoebe's last vet visit, the doctor informed me that she's considered mature now. Mature? That nutty six-pound cat still acts like a kitten! Times flies by so quickly and she'd just celebrated her 7th birthday. Cats aged 7-10 are considered "mature adult." Cats who are 11 or more years old are "seniors." That would be my Cosmo (12 years) and Saffy (13 years).

As I look back to when we brought them into our family, these cats really have been a part of lives for a long time. My daughter was in kindergarten when we adopted Saffy and next year she heads off to college. Where did the time go? I swear I'm still 30 years old! Ha!

Phoebe: "Who are you calling 'mature?' Now feed me."

As cats age, it's important to pay attention to the way we feed them because they have different nutritional needs. In older cats, the goal is to maintain or improve quality of life and decrease risk of chronic disease such as dental, heart and kidney. The right nutrition can actually fight the signs of aging. This is true for cats and people alike!

Cats can live well into their teens, which is over 70 in human years! When we focus on their nutritional needs as well as their social and physical needs, we are more likely to enjoy the company of our kitties for many years.
