Reasons To Adopt A Senior Cat
November 1, 2021
November is Adopt A Senior Cat Month! If you’re ready to bring a new pet into your life, please consider giving an older cat a second chance. This may be one of the best pet decisions you’ll ever make! A local Fayetteville, NC vet lists some reasons to adopt Fluffy in this article.

They Need Love

There’s a good reason that November is Adopt A Senior Pet Month. Older pets often get passed over for puppies and kittens, which is very sad, because they make absolutely wonderful pets. Cats in their golden years are often very cuddly and affectionate. Senior kitty purrs are quite precious as far as we are concerned!

They’re Cute

Our feline friends are absolutely adorable as kittens, but they somehow actually manage to get cuter as they grow older. There’s something very charming about the sweet, laid back ‘cattitude’ we so often see in senior kitties.

They’re Easy Keepers

One great thing about older cats? They’re very easy to care for. Fluffy may need to see her vet a bit more often than a younger kitty would, but for the most part, she’ll spend her time sleeping, with occasional breaks for meals and beauty sessions.


Another great reason to choose an older furball? They’re often much cheaper than kittens. Many shelters offer discounts on senior cats in the hopes that this will help them get adopted. Fluffy is likely already fixed, so you may save on veterinary care as well.

They’re Calm

Kittens are ridiculously cute. They’re also ridiculously mischievous! If you haven’t had a baby cat for a while, you may have forgotten how much pet parenting they need. You’ll constantly be plucking little Fluffy off your curtains, or disengaging her little claws from your ankle. Older cats are way past those terrible twos, and aren’t interested in knocking everything off your table or pouncing on your toes. They just want naps and cuddles!


Older cats often have a hard time getting adopted, and can get quite sad and lonely in shelter. These sweet furballs really just want someone to love them! It’s a beautiful feeling to give that one adorable feline a happily-ever-after. You’ll be repaid in purrs and cuddles. What more could you ask for? Does your senior cat need to come in for an exam?
