Senior pets don’t get as much love.
I understand that kittens and puppies are adorable but we all grow up. I mean humans grow old so what is wrong with animals growing up as well? Isn’t it beautiful to see your tiny kitten or puppy growing up to be more mature and calm? Because I remember the day I got my kitten and after 2 years, he is fully grown up and thriving. Time always goes on and when you look back, it is always heartwarming to see the change your pet has gone through.
That is exactly what we are here to do today. We wanted to focus on older pets and that is why we have compiled some of the most beautiful pictures of senior pets we could find for your enjoyment. They deserve just as much love as any baby animal. So just scroll below to take a look for yourself.
#1 She is such a content-looking doggo too.
My old girl is still up and running at 15 years old. I give her the biggest hugs and tell her she’s loved every single day because I’ll never know when she decides it’s time.
#2 This is Whiskey and he is already 21 years old.
#3 This lovely doggo has been with this man for over 19 years.
#4 Yes, that cake is for the horse and I think he looks excited but I can’t tell.
#5 This fluffy black kitty has been with his owner for over 20 years.
#6 Both of them look so happy together.
My 15-year-old senior lab has taken on teaching our new 8-week-old pup the art of life. Their relationship is the cutest!
#7 Okay, this is just adorable and I can’t handle the cuteness.
My 15-year-old Chihuahua has very sensitive eyes due to iris atrophy. Here she is in her ’doggles.’
#8 Kria is already 13 years old and living the life of a Queen as she should be able to.
Animals are much more loyal than humans can ever be. They will stay with us through thick and thin and they don’t judge us no matter what. Not only that but they also learn to recognize you and will try to protect you in whatever way they can. Some animal species can be also quite empathetic so if you get a pet, there is a good chance that you have a lifelong companion.
#9 Who doesn’t want to snuggle up close to a fire in winter?
My old man is going to be 16 this year. He’s still a kitten at heart, but today calls for his favorite bed snuggles by the fire.

#11 This is Brownie and he is 20 years old in this picture.
#12 Those are some hypnotizing eyes.
My 15-year-old cat, Elwood, mostly hides behind the bed. Today, while I was working, he was brave enough to come out for pets.
#13 Max is 13 years old and he loves people-watching.
#14 She does seem like a calm dog to chill with.
Dot (15) has definitely reached old dog status. She doesn’t have much energy to play anymore but is great to chill and be lazy with.
