According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, a cat is considered geriatric by age 7 or 8. As cats age, they tend to require increased attention, possible changes in diet and in some cases alterations to their home environment. Keeping pets mobile through appropriate exercise helps keep them healthier and more mobile. A cat that was once an outdoor cat, may want to spend more time indoors as she ages. A cat tree or cat condo can be a great alternative to outdoor play spaces.
