Cat Pacing and meowing

by Cynthia

My cat is 13 years old and for the last month he has been meowing and searching around the house with a stressed look in his face. His hair also looks clammy and damp...even after a bath.

Answer by Kate
This could have something to do with your cats age. Sometimes as cats age they begin to suffer from illness associated with old age.

Meowing and pacing is often a symptom of a form of dementia that some cats get as they get older.
I have written a page about senior cats and some of their illnesses, which may be able to help you know how to deal with living with an older cat.

here is the link

However if you are at all concerned about your cats health then a visit to he vets may help to put your mind at rest as well be able to treat any illnesses your cat may have.

best wishes Kate
