The Golden Years - Care of Your Senior Cat V1.w

Whether we call them "geriatric," "older," or "senior," it is always difficult to watch our old guys and ladies age. Geriatric cats suffer many of the same conditions and diseases as older humans, but careful managment can vastly improve their quality of life.

These lessons will guide you step-by-step through the roadblocks to those happy Golden Years your cat deserves. This course is ongoing, and no matter when you sign up, you'll start with lesson one, and move on with one lesson each week, to the final lesson, when you and your cat will "graduate" with a higher quality of life. There are six lessons in total. Here are a few things you should be aware of before you sign up for this class:

  • Enter your email address carefully. If you make a mistake, I'll get a "bounced" email, and I will have no way to let you know.
  • Due to the amount of email I receive, I cannot personally reply to "anti-spam" measures you or your ISP may use. So if you're using something that blocks email until a "real person" sends it, you'll need to turn it off to receive the class, OR include cats.guide@about.com in your "approved" email list. If you sign up for this class and do not immediately receive Lesson 1, this is the most likely cause.
  • Should you feel you need more time to digest the information, take it. Some lessons may take months to fully process and put into practice.
  • Likewise, if you want to move ahead, click on the "Missed Lessons" link at the bottom of each lesson, and select the lesson(s) that you want mailed immediately.
There'll be no tests and no final grade, but you'll finish this class secure in the knowledge that you are giving your cat the finest quality of life possible during his Golden Years.
