Catzheimer's and Doggie Dementia

Apparently, pets are now reaching old age as readily as their human companions, which means vets are starting to recognize symptoms of senility in older cats and dogs. Some of the symptoms mildly apply to my 18-year-old Siamese, though he mostly just forgets where his food is. His personality remains intact. I'm not really sure how "walking aimlessly" is unusual behaviour for a cat, though. Cats pace. They're just getting in touch with their inner lion. And I suppose I should be thankful that my cat was fascinated by my screensaver instead of just staring at a wall.
