Adopt an Older Cat

Homes Desperately Needed Older Cats!

Urgent! Cat Foster Homes Needed

Top 10 Reasons to Adopt an Older Cat:

  1. The personality of an older cat is already known - making it easier to match you with the right cat!
  2. Older Cats are generally less demanding than youngsters, and need less supervision, so If you work outside the home, an adult cat is much better able to content itself while you are out than a youngster.
  3. Most older cats are seeking little more than a warm lap, regular food and love!
  4. Adult cats from a rescue will be neutered, litter trained, and calmer than a youngster.
  5. If you have an older cat already, another oldie, carefully introduced, can be less stressful for him/her than a kitten.
  6. The older cat is less likely to catch birds and mice than a youngster, or at least much less often.
  7. Cats regularly live into their late teens these days, so most seniors will have many years of life and love to give.
  8. A senior puss is unlikely to leap up on your shelves and knock your ornaments off, or to climb up your curtains!
  9. Mature Mogs are so grateful to have found a loving home again - they will repay your love ten-fold!
  10. And last but by no means least ... Senior Kittizens Rock! (between naps)
