It's becoming easier to help your elderly cat live just as happilyGetting old is never easy, and it is especially difficult for a cat who can't verbalize her aches and pains. The aging process will no doubt take a toll on your companion, but with some extra love and care, older cats can still live full lives and contribute much joy in their final years in your home. Knowing what to expect as your cats body changes helps you to provide her the proper care and comfort to ensure a healthy quality of life in her later years.

My cat has been diagnosed with chronic active liver disease. He has had a series of antibiotics and his diet is being changed to Science Diet L/D. Can you suggest any other things? Does milk of thistle really work???

I took my 10 year old cat to the Vet this year. They wanted to do a ton of very expensive tests on my healthy "senior" cat. What a racket!
