How does a cat's personality change as it grows older? Are there any common tendencies besides getting less active?
Mine has become very demanding. He literally wants to sit on my lap all the time with me stroking him. If I'm doing something else in the house he sometimes won't stop demanding me to come to the room, sit, and start the petting ritual. I'm just wondering if others' old cats are like this too.
Things are of course different for each cat but yes, them getting more demanding is a definite older cat trait.
My 12 yr old cat is demanding too. I think as they grow older they become like us people more sensitive to attention and need more attention like small kids. Don't know if it makes sense to you.
