As cats grow older they often turn their attention from playing, exploring the great outdoors or hunting to spending time quietly with their owners. Nowadays, cats live longer than in the past and a great many cats reach their late teens and even early twenties with little or no sign of deterioration. They can glide gracefully into old age simply slowing down their pace of life.
There are many benefits of adopting a mature cat;
- The mature cat is more placid than a kitten and usually content to spend much of their time watching the world go by
- Older cats are often more home-loving and settled, making them an excellent companion and often prefer to stay around the house and garden.
- Older cats often love company and are often real lap cats.
If you are looking for a loving companion who likes to stay around the house with you, one of our loveable oldies could be the cat for you!
Here are some of our wonderful oldies looking for homes –
12 year old male black cat
Merlin is a very sweet boy looking for someone to show him all the nice things he’s been missing out on. His owner brought him in when she thought that he wanted more than the indoor flat he’s been used to. We are sure Merlin would love a garden and the freedom to do what he wants to do. If you think you can spoil this beaut rotten then please take him home today.
12 year old male grey and white cat
Dear Joe is looking for a new home, somewhere where he can be loved for the special chap that he is. Who knows what life has dealt him, but we do know he isn’t enjoying it in a pen. He moved from the Midlands to sunny
Devon to hopefully find the greatest new home ever. If you are looking for a quiet little man to share your home with then he is the one for you.
Welsey and Nanah
11 year old male and female black cats
This pretty pair of friendly cats were brought in here when their owners had to move and couldn’t bring them with them. They are very loving and calm cats just looking for a nice new forever home where they can feel safe and happy. If you could take them then please don’t hesitate to give us a call or come out and see them.
15 year old female grey tabby cat
This is no place for a 15 year old little girl! Precious is a very sweet old lady who deserves more than spending her golden years in a pen. We find that the older gentle cats like precious don’t cope too well in here; they should be sitting on a comfy sofa in a warm house with people who loves and cares for them! If you can spare a seat on your sofa and some of your love then please don’t let her spend another one of her precious days in here.
