PAWS: Senior cats make wonderful companions
Do you know about the Senior-to-Senior program at PAWS? Some of our wonderful cats older than 6 tend to not get adopted because of their age, or because they need a quiet home. People older than 60 can adopt one of these beautiful older sweethearts for free. Stop in today and see some of our Senior-to-Senior cats. For example:
Our lovely Kissa hasn’t found the right person to take her home yet. She is a totally sweet cat. Could it be her age — she’s 12 — that’s keeping her here? Could it be because she’s black and white? Or because she doesn’t want to share her new human with another cat? Whatever the reason, we know she would make a wonderful addition to someone’s home.
If you’re in the market for a cat that has attitude and isn’t afraid to use it, Little E is your girl. This feisty 11-year-old has spunk to spare. She loves to eat yummy wet food, and if you have a home office, she really likes to help you work on projects. If you are looking for a beautiful assistant, she’d make a great hire.
Speaking of age, why is it that so many older cats get overlooked? Are people “afraid” to adopt older cats because they may not be around for many years? Truth to tell, older cats are calm and laid back. They’re looking for a companion to sit with at the window and watch the birds fly by, giving you more time to brush them or pet them, or just love them, and they you. Have you ever seen kittens sit still? Not unless they’re sound asleep! Will an older cat let you drink your morning coffee without attacking your newspaper? For sure. Instead of thinking that you might have an older cat for only a couple of years, try thinking about giving a senior cat the most wonderful years of its senior life in a loving home, not in a shelter. That in itself is absolutely the best gift anyone could give a shelter animal.
Our wish list: As usual, we are running low on non-clumping cat litter, canned cat food and Purina Kitten Chow. Thank you for thinking of us!
We’re looking to add more names to our Foster Family list. I f you are interested in helping with pregnant cats, a cat with kittens or kittens without a mom, please give us a call. We never know when we’ll get a pregnant cat, or kittens that are too young to be at the shelter. Imagine the fun of watching kittens grow into cats! We supply everything you need, and you get to do all the snuggling. Call us today at 236-8702.
Please stop in and see us and all our gorgeous girls and guys at 146 Camden St. in Rockport. We’re open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Don’t forget to take a look at our website pawsadoption.org for the latest news and events, as well as the chance to meet our darlings that are looking for a “fur-ever” home. And thank you, as always, for your caring and support.
