Adopt a Senior Cat

November is “Adopt a Senior Pet” month, giving older cats a chance to shine while there are still kittens in shelters (like CAT). 

There are many reasons to fall in love with a senior cat.

  • More likely to want to lounge in your lap
  • Less likely to cause any destruction to anything
  • More likely to properly use the scratch post and litter box
  • Less likely to keep you up at night with antics
  • Full of affection and love

First, what is a senior cat? If you own an older cat, chances are you don’t consider your still pretty active 14-year-old cat a senior; however, your vet and pet food manufacturer do. It has everything to do with the way the body ages, health considerations, and nutritional needs of growing older—not spunkiness.

At CAT, we are committed to providing optimal care for the senior cats we have available for adoption. Beyond proper nutrition and medical checkups, they receive warm beds and plenty of lap time as well as exercise.

When you fall in love with a senior cat, your adoption fee is reduced, but the love you receive is not. Healthy older cats can live well past 18 or 19 years.

Here’s some inspiration from our online fans on why senior pets are the best (click here).
