20 Reasons Senior Cats are Perfect For Adoption

Senior cats are very much like senior humans. They have learned to enjoy the pleasures of life, looking for affection and warmth, regular meals and a comfortable place to live. But senior cats are often ignored when visitors come to shelters to adopt a new family member. So, many animal shelters are now offering incentives for adopting seniors; such as providing free medical care for cats who have chronic, easily managed health issues or disabilities such as blindness.

Senior cats often end up in shelters simply due to their owner’s death, disability, or divorce. But research has shown that senior cats help their owners to feel less isolated. People who own cats die less from heart attacks other diseases of the cardiovascular system. Senior cats are saving senior humans, and the reverse is also true. Senior cats make wonderful additions to families of all ages. Here are twenty reasons why.
