Adopting a shelter cat is one of the most wonderful acts of kindness that a person can do for an animal, but older cats, who might not be as adorable to most as young and playful kittens, often get overlooked. Hopefully, this post will show you how awesome older cats can be and inspire you to adopt one of your very own!
Older cats are often the first to go if a shelter has to euthanize some of its animals, so your impact on your new elderly adoptee's life will be all the greater. Though they can suffer from more diseases than young cats, older cats are often already house-trained and socialized, and their personality will already be set – no surprises!
