As yous guys knows, mes is a senior cat. Mes has different needs from a younger cat.
Mes wanted to shares some things about us oldsters
Mommy gives mes soft and warm spots.
Mes used to prefers to sleeps on the floor, but now, if mes sleeps there, mes gets awfully sore. Mommy has nice soft warm spots made up for mes in all kinds of places. Besides my heated cubby (which needs to be replaced before winter). Mes has a heated blanket on the sofa, an cuddly bed on the bed (thanks yous Speedy) and a fuzzy soft furry blanket under the bed. There is a soft flat furry bed under the cat tree, and a box on its side with a blanket inside, inside the closet. Yes...mes sometimes does sleeps on the floor--STILL, but now that Mommy has put some flat warm blankets on the floor, mes prefers to sleeps on them.
Mommy gives mes a lift.
Even though mes can't see as good as mes used to, mes still likes to sit on the top of the cat tree and looks out the window, but mes can't gets up there without help. Mommy puts a board from the tree to the sofa so mes can gets there by myself when she is not home. And sometimes, Mommy knows mes wants up-- to some places (like the counter and she lifts mes up and down.
Mommy is gentle with mes.
When mes was young, mes could jump from the floor to the top of the fridge and then back down without any problems. Now mes old, mes hurts, mes sometimes mes has trouble jumping from the floor to the sofa and back down. When me did bad things before, Mes might get pushed off of a lap, but now, Mommy knows this hurts and she is furry careful with mes. Mommy picks me up and puts me down gently as sometimes just landing on the floor from the sofa can hurts.
Mommy enjoys every minute with me.
Me is a well-cared-for cat and mes has lived into my late teens and my Merlin lived even longer! Our humans did not distance themselves because they was thinking we might die soon and did not want to gets hurt from us dying, they KNOWS everything will die (eventually) and has loved us lots and lots, as long as we’s alive. If yous has fears around death, please work on those so that yous can loves your cat until the furry end. Wes loves yous unconditionally.
If yous is a senior, what does your Mommy and Daddy does special?
