The Advantages of Adopting an Older Cat

Wednesday, September 25, 2013
posted by Jim Murphy

OLDER CATCats that are over ten are considered elderly but there are some real benefits in choosing to adopt an older cat.

  • You are doing the animal a wonderful act of kindness. Older cats are much less likely to get adopted and the shelters cannot keep them¬†indefinitely.
  • Older cats are generally calmer and don’t have some the behavior problems that younger cats may have.
  • Personality – Older cats are more mellow and make great companions. They will sit on your lap and purr you to sleep!
  • Older cats are less likely to hunt and get themselves into trouble. Although I would always suggest that you keep your cat indoors.
  • A senior cat is ¬†also less likely to get underfoot as kittens frequently do.
  • An older cat will be completely house trained.

So consider doing a world of service to an older cat by offering her a wonderful new home. You won’t regret it. They may be older but they still have lots of love to give.

Remember, your pets count!
