ten year old cat becoming more clingy

by elainejugs

Hi my cat is nearly 10 years old, ( april 23rd ) she has recently become very clingy and follows me everywhere around the house meowing more than usual, its an attention seeking meow and a bit of fuss seems to cure this but should i be concerned for her health. she is the last surviving of 4 cats so i am feeling very protective towards her. i would appreciate your expertise advice.

many thanks .

Sounds to me just like old age. Even though she is not that old, cats can become more clingy and attention seeking as they get older. I have a web page about older cats here https://www.our-happy-cat.com/senior-cat.html

However if you do suspect that her behaviour is very changed then I always recommend a check-up at the vets, especially if they haven't been for a while. At least that way you can put your mind at rest about your cats health and just get on with enjoying each others company and changing ways.

best wishes kate
