The symptoms that should alert you when a cat is nearing the end of its life

There are certain symptoms that may indicate that your feline is about to die. If you detect any of these symptoms, seek veterinary attention immediately.

The death of a pet is undoubtedly a very sad experience, because from the moment it arrives at home, it becomes a member of the family. Over time, experiences are shared with him and a strong bond is created. However, it is important to be prepared for the fact that it is inevitable that a cat will age. And, therefore, to be aware of the signs that a cat is nearing the end of its life.

Just like us, animals begin to behave differently when they are close to death. At this time, it’s more important than ever to spend quality time with them. And of course, to provide them with all the care they need. At home, give them a space where they feel comfortable and safe.

How do you know if your cat is dying?

Every cat is different and may have different symptoms. However, there are certain symptoms that occur in almost all cases. One of the most common is isolation. Cats like to be alone when they are about to die. They actually seek out quiet places to isolate themselves.

Another warning sign is a lack of appetite. Contrary to popular belief, cats do not die because they do not eat. In fact, they don’t eat because they are dying. In their final days, they lose interest in food and water.

It is well known that cats are very sleepy animals, spending 16 or even 18 hours a day sleeping. When that time comes, they sleep much more than usual and spend most of their time resting.

They are also very clean animals, who like to groom themselves. But when they are about to die, they completely neglect their personal hygiene. You’ll notice that your cat almost never licks itself again.

There are also other strange behaviors, such as circling or meowing for no apparent reason. There are also physical signs, such as difficulty breathing.

Of course, these behavioral changes are not necessarily a sign of a dying cat. They can have many other causes. If you notice any of them in your pet, take him to the vet.
