Adopting a shelter kitty is more than likely one of the most wonderful acts of kindness that a person can do for an animal, however, older cats, who may not be as adorable to most as young and playful kittens, are too often overlooked. Hopefully, the gallery below will show you just how awesome older cats can be and inspire you to adopt one of your very own!
Older cats are oftentimes the very first to go if a shelter has to euthanize some of its animals, so your impact on your new elderly adoptee’s life will truly be so much greater.
Though they are more likely to suffer from more diseases than young cats, older cats are often already house-trained and socialized, and their own unique personalities will already be in place with no surprises!
