What About Our Senior Citizens Cats

March 30th, 2009 · No Comments · Cat Care, Cat Grooming


This is a story about Mrs. Kitty.  Mrs. Kitty has been a member of the Cat Palace USA household since December 24, 2006.  She was adopted at the local human society  along with Jazz Cat.  When we entered the facility, Mrs. Kitty was in a cage in the reception area.  I though this was unusual and questioned the staff why she was in the lobby.  They informed me she had been there since February.  I  knew right then what was really going on.  No body wanted to adopt a twelve year old cat that had been imprisoned for the past 10 months.  I was in a kill society and therefore adopted both Mrs. Kitty and Jazz Cat, and we all  had a very very Merry Christmas.

When I brought Mrs. Kitty home and let her out in my master bedroom, she has never left the room.  It seems she had been contained in a basement before without love and affection, and did not want to leave the bedroom filled with lots of TLC. Because she has grown very large, receives a lots of TLC, eats like a horse, we have to spend lots of time grooming her to keep down the thick hair from accumulating all over the room with our cat grooming equipment.

When I was in the society last week, I noticed one of the workers would not inform a respective adoptive parent about a 8 year old cat which may or may not have meet their needs for a new pet.  I asked her why the older cat was not discussed and was informed that most people would not adopt older cats.  Just remember these older feline friends, aka Senior Citizens, need a home just like the younger guys.  Next time you in a facility to adopt a cat, take  home two, a senior citizen and a young rascal and God will bless you.
