We all know that kittens are just so darn cute and entertaining to watch...and who can resist those cute little inquisitive faces? But households who want a kitten just because they are “cute” or because the kids want a kitten usually soon lose interest in the new pet because—let’s face it—all kittens grow up!! As Spring rapidly approaches we encourage you to please consider the benefits of adopting an adult (or senior) cat as your newest member of the family.
Reasons to opt for the older kitty are many:
—Adult cats are litter box-trained. They know from years of experience that the litter box is the place to go.
—Kittens can be rowdy and even take dangerous risks. After all, they're still learning life's lessons and the consequences of their actions. An adult cat knows better, or doesn't have the desire to go on a trek up your curtains or to swat at your pet fish.
—Many people are fearful to adopt an older cat because they don't want to get attached to a kitty that may not be in the best health. This is a myth. Many felines live well into their late teens and 20s -- and they can live quite robust lives.
—Not only are senior cats' personalities well-established (so you know what temperament of cat you're getting) but they typically are much more mellow than a kitten. They're good for a cuddle or good as a "lap cat" -- perfect for a senior, an empty nester, or even a busy professional who's worried about kitty getting into trouble while she or he is at work.
—Your new senior kitty will fit in well in any environment, because it doesn't take as much to get them accustomed to the "new." In addition, if you already have an older cat or dog at home, a senior cat playmate won't be as taxing to your existing pet as a feisty kitten.

Martina-1Recently a beautiful senior kitty came to our Shelter who we named Martina. She was tattered, dirty, and very skinny, but she had a heart of gold. All this girl wanted was to be loved and to love back. After a thorough examination by the vet, Martina was placed in foster care so she could get lots of love and special attention. After a short period of time the Shisler family of KY saw her picture on our Facebook page and immediately fell in love with her. Today Martina is living out her golden years in a loving, forever home where she gives her humans as much love as they unselfishly give her. Thank you to the Shisler family for seeing that adult and senior kitties deserve a loving, forever home too!!
