We only adopt older pets. You will never regret giving that cat a good home and will be paid back so many times. I always worry about older pets that have been left at shelters and how scared they must be. Thank you for doing this.

She looks like our Prudence, who we adopted from the shelter when she was 14. Pru only lived a few years but she was what my grandmother called a "pistol." I wish you many years of happiness with your new addition.

I only adopt older/senior dogs and cats. I may not get as many years with them but the love I get is unmatched. My latest is a tuxedo, he was 8 or so they think and after a few months he is such a lover boy. His original "Mamma" died in the house and wasn't found until someone went to visit her. No one knows how long Chopper and the two little dogs this lady had were alone with the body. It did occur to me that the animals may have survived by, you know, munching on her and I was a little leery at first. I think Chop likes being dog free now. He's really blossomed and is the boss.

Kudos to all who give these older animals a new, happy home life.

Adopt the older adult. Getting young cats is no guarantee they'll be without health issues. We adopted 4 kitties. The oldest was about 9 months old. The youngest was 5 to 6 weeks old. The Shelter wasn't sure. Three of these 4 have seen the vet at least once for some health concern. I have a cat emergency fund set aside for such things so we can afford to have them treated as things come up.

She looks very sweet. Laid back, enjoyable little couch buddy. Kittens and young cats are just too full of mischief and rambunctiousness for me. I raised kids, done with that.
