Since this month is Adopt a Senior Pet Month, in honor of our sister Allie (who's SO old), we asked Mommy to make a Top Five Reasons list on why Senior Cats are better to adopt.
[Except for me, of course. But I'm already taken.]
uhhh....well... since I'm the Responsible one in the family, I told Momma I'd pass her list on to you - and here it is:
What? Just like that? Not even a David Letterman Countdown or anything???
*grumbles* Ya want something done right, ya gotta do it yourself....
We'd like to introduce you to a few very special Seniors waiting for their forever home at Wayside Waifs, Allie's Alma Mater:
Meet Snowball (he wants you to know he is really glad we didn't choose a name that was too awful, like Powder Puff, but he'd prefer Macho Man or King of the Jungle. Just meowin').
Snowball came to Wayside from a rural Missouri rescue group. After having spent most of his young adult years outdoors, he's ready to try the cushy life. And he's been practicing hard at Wayside. He's the current kitty crush for a lot of the peeps there who have had a taste of his mancat lovin'.
That pink nose of his is just adorable! (Sorry, dude. Uh, we mean macho. Yeah.)
And what about Sissy and Sassy, two gorgeous 8 year old sisters needing a new home. It just about broke their owner's heart to have to give them up.
We think it'd be a wonderful gift to them - and to their former owner - if these senior girls were given a forever home for the holidays, don't you?
And now...*drum roll*
THE TOP FIVE REASONS TO ADOPT A SENIOR CAT
2. They won't ricochet off your forehead at 2 in the morning.
3. They (usually) won't chew your favorite set of ipod earbuds.
4. They (often) make warm, cushy sofa companions on those cold winter evenings by the fire
5. They come already vaccinated and "fixed" - and often even microchipped!
And the #1 Reason to Adopt a Senior Cat:
6. They need you.
