Did you know that according to the AVMA your cat is considered elderly at age 7 and large dogs are geriatric at age 6?
Older cats have similar limitations as older dogs. Teeth become more fragile and if they have developed an illness like arthritis, they may not be as active as they once were. It is best to keep toys soft, yet stimulating and just like dogs, cats enjoy interacting with their pet parents.
