You will find the answers to many (if not all) of your questions in "Mitska Says: A Cat's Eye View to Healthy Senior Feline Living" as told by Mitska a fifteen year old Maine Coon kitty who really thinks she is a "young" ten! There are excerpts and anecdotes from Mitska herself that are charming and frankly I wish there had been even MORE of Mitska in this helpful book. The portions that featured Mitska were some of my favorite moments.
Cats ages 7 and up are considered to be "Seniors". The title "Seniors" brings with it many changes. These changes can be physical, emotional and behavioral and are often quite confusing to the cat that is experiencing these changes and their owners who love them.
Reading this book I was reminded of many things that my Bobo had experienced throughout his Senior years and I couldn't help but think how helpful it would have been to have a book like this to explain some of the changes that he was experiencing. If I had had a book like this it would have alerted me to some things that I would have loved a better understanding of such as:
- "Senior Conditions & Illnesses"
- "Veterinarians Answer Your Questions"
- "Nutrition And Hydration"
- "The Scoop On Poop" (love that title!)
- "Cat Health Studies"
