111 Alzheimer's in cats by Gevera Bert P. Patient Expert Posted Wed 01 Oct 2008 9:07pm Who knew? A recent study shows that our feline friends also get Alzheimer's.

I only have one cat left, who is 13 and mopey over the loss of his best friend, and he's also got a cold right now. I can't im ... Read on »
