As far as your cat’s concerned, play has always been the perfect way to practise their hunting skills. This natural behaviour doesn’t change just because they've got a little bit older. In fact, your cat may continue to chase toys or play hide-and-seek until their legs simply won’t let them!
As your cat gets older, they may begin to prefer the comfort and warmth of that beanbag in the corner.
All the same, you’ll probably find that your older cat doesn’t have quite as much energy as they did before. In fact, this reduction in activity might be the only visible sign that they're getting older at all.
