This interesting article from the Morris Animal Foundation shares important information about the surprising prevalence of cognitive decline in cats. Since many members' cats lose a leg at an advanced age, I think it's important to read this so that you can keep cognitive decline symptoms in mind if your cat is having a challenging recovery. 

Studies report that roughly 28% of cats aged 11 to 14 years and 50% of cats over 15 years of age suffer from serious cognitive decline. Some experts believe these numbers might actually underestimate the true number of cats suffering from significant mental decline. . . . 

Signs include:

* Vocalization - increased/ unusual vocalization (especially at night)

* Interaction - altered interaction with owners and other household pets

* Sleep - altered sleep/wake cycle disturbances

* House soiling

* Disorientation or confusion

* Activity changes, such as aimless wandering

* Learning and memory lapses
