  • Cats sleep about 70% of their lives.
  • Older cats can have a disease that is similar to Alzheimer’s and it’s called Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome.
  • Most domestic cats hold their tails straight up while walking. Wild cats are said to hold their tails horizontally or tucked between their legs while walking.

    Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome. Is that so? My previous cat was nearly 20 and I think she was becoming a little slow to react. She could still jump up the window sil and was always happy to see me, until a day or do before the end. We still miss the dear darling.
