Tips on Keeping Your Cat’s Brain Young

Like humans, cats are living longer lives.   In fact many cats can now live into the upper teens and in some cases 20’s (in human years).   However, that doesn’t mean a longer life doesn’t have its drawbacks.  After the age of 15 a cat has a high probability of developing feline cognitive disfunction which is like a cat’s version of Alzheimer’s disease.   This disorder can leave cats disoriented, crying, pacing, getting lost, having trouble sleeping, as well as problems with the litter box.

While there is no cure for FCD, like Alzheimer’s, there are things you can do to improve your cat’s brain function.  And you can start these things at a very young age.   You can even extend their lifespan by keeping their brains “young.”  Here are 10 tips on keeping your cat’s brain young.  Thanks to Vetstreet for these great tips.
