30+ Of The Oldest Cats Adopted By People With The Biggest Hearts

Did you know that the majority of cats are without a home through no fault of their own? It’s a frequent misconception that all cats available for adoption at shelters and rescues are injured. But nothing could be further from the truth! Adopting a new feline is always encouraged. It may take days or months to fully integrate your new cat adoption or kitten into your family pets, depending on their age and dispositions. The easiest introduction is said to be when the new cat is younger, smaller, and of the opposite sex, but this is very dependent on the personalities and experiences of the felines involved. Adopting a shelter cat is one of the most amazing things a person can do for an animal, but senior cats, who aren’t as cute as young and lively kittens, are sometimes overlooked. Hopefully, this article has shown you how wonderful elderly cats can be and has inspired you to adopt one for yourself.

When a shelter has to euthanize any of its animals, older cats are generally the first to go, so your impact on your new geriatric adoptee’s life will be much larger. Despite the fact that senior cats are more susceptible to disease than younger cats, they are often already house-trained and socialized, and their personalities are set — no surprises!
