Damage to the smooth cartilage layer that covers and protects the bone in a joint can lead to pain, inflammation and eventually arthritis. Arthritis simply means ‘inflammation of the joints’ and is a common and under recognised problem for cats, often mistaken for the cat “slowing down with age”. This condition is as painful in cats as in humans although cats are very good at hiding the signs giving you few clues as to the underlying problem.
