Cat growing white hair

July 11th, 2005, 08:13 AM
Hi everyone, I am wondering why my younger cat (10 years old) is growing more and more white fur than my older cat (12 years old). My younger cat is also less playful than my older one. Please help.

Animals are like us - some get grey earlier.

If your younger cat always was playful and suddenly is not, I might worry but if she was always like this, then it's just different personalities!:)

she was very playful even after we moved back to Hong Kong. However, when we moved back to my parents house, she got quiet like she isn't interested in playing anymore. On the other hand, my older cat didn't like to play at all but now she plays with her toy mouse every night. I took my younger cat to a little of vets for other problems but everytime the vets said she's otherwise healthy...

That's very cute-- your wording I mean... :)

These kitties are lucky to have you. So many beasties get abandoned as they hit their senior years. It's great that you show so much concern.
