Like us, cats get old too, and getting old is not all bad. Each stage of life has its joys, pleasures and drawbacks. Middle age for a cat is between 8 and 10 years of age, which is a kind of gray zone during which the cat is fully engaged in the process of life without any particular physical or mental deterioration. At the end of middle age, cats start acting and feeling their age.
This effects of the aging process are both physical and mental. Physically for example manifest itself when structural and functional changes occur in virtually all organ systems throughout the body, affecting vision, hearing, stamina, susceptibility to drugs and locomotor activity. Mental changes on the other hand are secondary to decreasing brain size and a reduced number of brain cells. In some cases, feline Alzheimer-like changes hasten deterioration.
