How to Feed a Senior Cat
Reduced physical activity as a result of aging or simply as a lifestyle could lead your pet to be overweight or even obese. Overweight cats may have more health problems and a shorter life expectancy. Often, a cat's weight can be reduced simply by eliminating table scraps and treats from the diet and avoiding high-energy cat food. Diets with moderate to low energy but still containing high-quality ingredients (especially a good source of protein) should be selected.
