Dear Most Esteemed and Knowledgeable Kitties: I have three cats, two sisters that just turned 7, and another female that turned 4 in Februrary.All three are part Siamese, although a few generations back — the sisters are Tuxedos and the other is solid black.Beginning at around age 9, your cat enters senior years.At this stage, cats often begin to develop diseases common to their senior-human counterparts, such as diabetes, heart disease, hyperthyroidism, kidney disease and cancer.Meet our 8 week old bouncing babies and their mom, Faith. Mom is very low key and such a loving mommy to her babies, always washing and fussing over them. He enjoys the company of humans too because humans will pet him and brush him.

If so, it’s likely that some medical issues have accompanied your cat’s aging process.

But don't worry about me, just love me, because it doesn't slow me down in the slightest.

I can run, jump, and play just like any other kitty. Read More Although Foxy may be a bit shy at first with people she will warm up and be a total sweetheart when she gets to know you.

Kittens chew on shoes, the corners of books, ear lobes, carpet tassels, electrical cords, drapery strings, plants, and much, much more. They tend to save their energy for more important activities, like tormenting the neighbor's Terrier.

Two well known clichés about cats are: "curiosity killed the cat" and "cats have nine lives." And curiosity usually leads to the loss of about 8 of a kitten's lives in its first year.
