“A retrospective study revealed that 22 percent of cats over 1 year old and 90 percent of cats over 12 years old had radiographic evidence of degenerative joint disease.”

This is why I use plenty of towels when I groom a senior cat. ¬†They rest on soft surfaces. If they’re not heavy, I even support their body while bathing them. The little things count.
