Exercise for Senior Cats
As cats start to age, they need exercise to stay healthy. Since the ultimate goal is to get your cat moving, using toys is often the best tactic, particularly the fishing-rod-type toys or small items your cat can chase. If you don’t have those cat toys, try using common household items, such as string, ribbons and bows for gift wrapping or even a ring from a milk-jug lid. Always monitor your cat with toys to ensure they do not swallow objects. Discard toys that show wear and have potential for losing small pieces that could be swallowed.
