20 Fun Slumber Party Games and Ideas [for Kids & Adults]
A senile cat is forgetful of his own well-being. He may venture into risky areas, be unable to find his way back home, not remember to come in from the rain or be unable to find his litter box or food bowl. He may yowl, seem confused, demand feeding because he has forgotten that he has just eaten not because he dislikes the food you served (if led to the food bowl he starts eating at once rather than waiting for you to serve more desirable food). He may become incontinent because he forgets to control his body functions, not from bowel or bladder disease. He may show repetitive behaviours such as walking in circles, plucking fur or aimless movements. Anyone who has seen programs about Alzheimer's Disease in humans will recognise similar symptoms in their cat, though they may choose to deny that it is happening. Your vet will determine whether the behaviour is due to illness, injury (e.g. head trauma) or senility.

Many owners refer to their cats as being "rheumaticky", meaning he has stiff joints or is limping. If his joints become painful, he becomes less active and may become lame, stiff, reluctant to move or may suddenly stand still after getting up (due to painful joints). He may become irritable or vocal due to discomfort and may resent being handled or even stroked in certain places. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of feline arthritis and is a degenerative condition of the cartilage at the ends of the bones; it erodes away. Sometimes it results from an injury or disease.

And do this knowing the time, that already hour for you to awaken out of sleep; for our salvation nearer now than when first we believed.
Do this, knowing the time, that it is already the hour for you to awaken from sleep; for now salvation is nearer to us than when we believed.

This is to be understood, not of the dead sleep of sin, in which unconverted persons are, to be awoke out of which is a work of divine power; but of the carnal security and drowsy frame of spirit which sometimes attend the churches and children of God, the wise as well as the foolish virgins; and lies in grace being dormant in, the soul; in a backwardness to duty, and a slothfulness in the performance of it; in resting in the outward duties of religion; in lukewarmness about the cause of Christ; in an unconcernedness about sins of omission and commission; and in a willingness to continue in such a sluggish frame: all which arise from a body of sin and death, and an over anxious care for the things of the world; from a weariness in spiritual exercises, and an abstinence from spiritual company and ordinances and from outward peace and liberty: such a frame of spirit, when, it prevails and becomes general is of bad consequence to the churches of Christ; the spirit of discerning, care and diligence in receiving members, are in a great measure lost, and so they are filled with hypocrites and heretics; Christ absents himself from them; leanness of soul is brought upon them; and they are in danger of being surprised with the midnight cry: the methods God takes to awaken his people out of such a sleep are various; sometimes in a more gentle way, by the discoveries his love, which causes the lips of those that are asleep to speak; sometimes by severe reproofs in the ministry of the word; and sometimes by sharp persecutions in providence; and at last it will be done by the midnight cry: the argument, showing the reasonableness of awaking out of sleep, and that it was high time to do so, follows, for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed; by which is meant, not temporal salvation, or a deliverance from the persecution the saints endured in Judea, from their own countrymen, by the departure of them from Jerusalem, a little before its destruction, by the destruction of that city, and the peaceful times of Vespasian; but a spiritual and eternal salvation: not Christ the author of it, who was come to effect it; nor that itself, as obtained, which was now done, finished, and completed; nor the application of it to their souls, which also had been made; but the consummate enjoyment of it in heaven, the salvation of their souls at death, and both of soul and body at the resurrection; consisting in a freedom from every evil, and in a full possession of all that is good and glorious: this is brought nearer to the saints, to their sight and view, as their faith grows and increases; and they are nearer the enjoyment of that than when they first believed; and which is a strong reason why a sluggish, slothful frame should not be indulged; what, sleep, and heaven so near at hand!
