Our cat, Sammy, just turned 16 years old. At the beginning of March I noticed he had walked around the family room at least 10 times. Over that week, sometimes he would just walk around in a circle over and over. I took him to the vet and she seemed to think he might have had a stroke and now has a sort of "cat dementia". She said there is nothing to give to a cat to help them but I want to be absolutely sure. Maybe someone out there had a senior cat that started pacing and found some sort of medicine to help? I have to constantly keep my eye on him for he's gotten himself into some real predicaments, like falling behind the washer and dryer at 3 AM and getting trapped inside the couch. I've been putting him in a small bathroom at night and was happy to see him resting peacefully when I would go to let him out in the morning, but this morning was a different story. There was litter all over the floor. I realized that he had walked through his water bowl and then through the litter box, tracking it all over. Who knows how long he had been pacing. I realize that the only way to get him to be still is to hold him. If there is no sort of "cure" for cat dementia I know that I can't let him live like this. It will be hard to say goodbye but I know it's best. I'm still holding out hope that there is some sort of medication out there. Thanks for any help/advice.
