40 Beautiful People Who Adopted Older Cats

Older cats need a home too.

I am well aware that most people like to adopt kittens. It is usually because it is easier for a kitten to adapt to a new environment and they want to grow up alongside the cat and have more time with the creature. While if you adopt an older kitty, there is always the chance that you won’t have enough time, and losing a pet is like losing a family member and can cause a lot of heartbreak. This always deters a lot of people away from adopting an older kitty which is a shame.


Because older cats have a lot of love left to give. And they deserve to have someone beside them in their ending moments. Nobody should have to pass away alone. And since the rise in people wanting kittens, shelters are forced to either turn away older cats or are not able to help the elderly kitties. However, many people in recent months have chosen to get an old cat to give them all the love that they want and shower them with luxuries. You can see that for yourself by scrolling below.

Elder cats can be a bit harder to take care of and many people may not realize that the experience is different. Because of their age, they are usually less active just as humans get with age. And not only that but older cats can also gain weight more easily because they do not have the same metabolism they did when they were young even though they might eat the same. That is why it is paramount to pay attention to their daily intake of food and play with them every day.
