Cats are officially “seniors” when they have 10 years old. Even though cats age more gracefully than dogs, they still age. When they get older they are not able to jump to the top of the refrigerator as easy as before and they start to sleep more.
Adopting any animal is an amazing experience that will bring so much happiness in your life. Unfortunately many people who want to adopt a cat will decide to take home a young cat or a kitten. That makes the oldest cats to be euthanized at kill shelters and the last ones to get adopted.
We can find in shelters so many old cats who are waiting for someone to adopt them. Some old cats can wait for years till they find someone to adopt them, others never get the chance of finding a home. If you are planning to adopt a cat, consider to take home an older one! By doing this, you will offer the cat the best time of her life and you will make place to the kittens in shelters.
