Old Chicken

Yesterday I opened the refrigerator and noticed that my chicken was expired...

So, I sadly picked it up and threw it out...

I was really looking forward to eating it...

If only I would have either eaten it sooner or done something to preserve it...

And then that weirdly got me thinking about my friends cat...

He is only about 15 years old, but how much longer does he have to live...?

3, maybe 4 years...?

What could she do to help her cat live a longer, healthier life...?

We all know that as things get older, they need a bit more help...

They may not know when it's time to go to the bathroom or might not even remember who their best friend is...

Everything & everyone sadly goes through this stage, but there are a few ways we can help our cat live a longer & healthier life!

He may have trouble jumping in and out of the litter box, so either get a walk in litter box or a ladder leading up...

He might cry at night or not know how to use the litter box anymore, so make sure you aren't too hard on him...

It's easier to not worry as much when all you have to do is apply a Urine Odor Remover to the pee spot and let it dry...

Make sure you are taking him to the vet regularly (preferably twice a year) for basic checkups and to ask the vet about any issues...

You will also need to encourage him to drink water throughout the day and make sure he is eating his food...

If not, try warming it up for him... Make it a bit more gourmet!

And finally, provide some ramps or steps for him to climb up and perch near a window, since I know he likes to stare out at the birds!

And there you have it. Not all cats can live a long life, but they can all live a good one!
