As your cat gets older, they no longer get as much exercise and their metabolism slows down. They therefore require less calories and you will need to feed them less food in terms of portion size.
Your cat’s natural behaviour will continue throughout their life – and they'll probably stay active and curious for years and years. In fact, sometimes you’ll find it hard to believe they're getting older at all!
Because your cat isn’t as active as they used to be, you might find they're getting bit tubby!
As they grow older, however, their nutritional needs will change. So after the age of seven, it’s important to adjust their diet to one that suits a more senior cat.
