When looking for a new cat to join the family, many people opt for cute kittens and younger cats, meaning mature moggies are often overlooked.
Sadly, older cats in our care have to wait three times longer to find homes than their younger counterparts.
Mature and senior cats deserve to be championed because each has their own unique character and they can be just as loving and playful as younger cats.
We promise to find a new home for every cat, no matter how long it takes, but we would love to get mature moggies into cosy new homes quicker, as that’s where they’re happiest.Find a mature moggy to adopt
Mature and senior cats have a lot to offer, here are just a few of the benefits of adopting an older cat:
Generally, moggies are considered to become mature when they reach the age of 7. Once they reach the age of 11, we grant them ‘senior kitizen’ status.
With the constant improvements in veterinary care, cats are living longer and it’s not uncommon for your cat to reach the ripe old age of 18!
When your cat enters their golden years, they will generally become less active, calmer, and perhaps will enjoy staying indoors a bit more. They will require some extra understanding for their changing lifestyle and elderly cat care needs but despite that, you will be rewarded with a content pet, who is often happy to spend much time quietly at home as a wonderful companion.Blog: How long do pet cats live?
