Max the Cat

My husband has advanced Alzheimer’s. We have a cat Max that he is attached too. He has to know at all times where Max is. When we get ready to leave the house he has to be able to physically see Max before we leave. Will he eventually not recognize Max? Concerned.

  1. Hi, Patty. I'm sure it is possible that he could eventually not have such an interest in Max, but you know what? I bet Max will still love him just as much. It sounds like they have such a sweet relationship. My dad didn't forget my dog, Layla. Here's a piece I wrote about my dad and the visits we orchestrated between him and Layla. ( https://alzheimersdisease.net/living/pet-visits ) - I wish you all the best.
