Now that Rueben is 17 his geriatric phase is really kicking in. Lots of wailing through the house, a growing obsession about licking the water out of the shower and an even bigger attachment to the water in the blue bucket. Mostly all he wants is attention and more cuddles than we have time available. It's a sad thing to see a wonderful companion slowly declining into needy old age. Sometimes he cries so much I think something is wrong, should I take him to the vet ? No he's just old and increasingly dependent. There are times when your cats behaviour changes for no apparent reason, they may start to pee where they shouldn't, or not eat, or show signs of aggression. It's always best to take them to the vet for a checkup, remember they can't tell you if something is wrong. This link is an interesting read about some of the issues that can affect your cats behaviour.
