A good quality senior formula cat food should give Tiger everything he needs to be healthy. Unless you notice things that make you think he needs supplements such as dull coat, dandruff, difficulty getting around, etc. you should not need to give him any vitamins. However, a senior kitty should be seeing the vet at least once a year (my vet says every 6 months)so his annual exam would be a great time to ask your vet if Tiger needs anything extra to keep him healthy and they can recommend the best choice of supplements for his needs.
