Could Your Cat Have Arthritis?
Arthritis in cats is a very common condition in our older cats and in fact studies show anywhere from 75% to 90% of our older cats will develop some degree of arthritis by the age of 12. Cats though are notorious for hiding their problem as they adapt their behaviour to mask their problem. This means we must be observant of subtle behavioural changes that can tell us that there is something going on.
