Mature Moggies Day
16 June 2021
When looking for a new cat to join their family, many people opt for cute kittens and younger cats, passing the more mature moggies by.
Sadly, this means the older cats that end up in our care often have to wait over three times longer to find new homes than their younger counterparts.
We promise to find a new home for every cat, no matter how long it takes, but we’d love to get these gorgeous senior kitizens into cosy new homes quicker, as that’s where they’re happiest.
To celebrate the nation’s mature moggies and prove that they have just as much to give as younger felines, we’re launching Mature Moggies Day on 16 June.
Every year on this date we plan to encourage owners of older cats to share their stories on social media with #MatureMoggiesDay in the hope that it will encourage more people to think about giving an OAP (old age puss) a home.
