Senior Cats require different nutrition than adult cats or kittens. Some cat food brands have developed foods specifically designed for senior cats. These foods tend to be less calorie dense and contain ingredients that can help maintain healthy joints and prevent kidney issues.
It is important to note that an elderly cat does not need senior cat food. A high-quality adult cat food will provide adequate nutrition. Despite this, there are some high-quality senior cat foods available and you may consider using them. Senior cat food is available in dry (kibble) and wet (canned) form.
