Any ideas on how to make a cat with arthritis feel better?
We have a cat that's about 13 years old and he's developed arthritis in his hips (as diagnosed by the vet.) We're obviously taking the vet's advice about medication, but since he hates taking pills I was wondering if anyone had other ways to ease his pain a bit. He's definitely not in constant pain - this was diagnosed very early and by accident (getting x-rayed for something else) - it seems to mostly be weather and fatigue related. He still plays like a kitten. I've seen commercials for things you mist into water dishes and stuff, does any of that work? What helps people with arthritis? I know he would be happier if I could come up with some non-pill ways to help him manage!
