Cats are officially “seniors” by the time they reach 10 years of age. Fortunately, kitties these days often live well into their teens and even their early 20s, so a 10-year-old healthy senior cat still has lots of living left to do! Cats tend to age more gracefully than dogs, but they still age. When they get older they can’t jump to the top of the refrigerator any more. Their appetites wane. They sleep more.
Adopting any animal is a rewarding and fulfilling experience that will bring so much joy and happiness to you and your new pet. Unfortunately for old cats, many people come to shelters looking to adopt a young cat or kitten. That means that the oldest cats are the first to be euthanized at kill shelters or the last to find homes.
In all shelters are many senior cats who are waiting for someone to adopt them. Some wait for years till they find a home, some are never adopted. If you consider adopting a cat, give a chance to an older one! By doing this, you will offer the cat some beautiful years and you will make place to the kittens in the shelters. The kittens are always much faster adopted.
In the video below you can see the touching story of an adorable old cat who has been adopted. Yow can see her doing simple things like waiting for her owner at the door, you can see her playing, purring for her owner, sleeping by her owner’s feet during night. This cat is living the time of her life! Her life was hard before, but the life that she has now makes up for all of that. She is a happy kitty!
