10 Reasons Senior Cats Rule (from Petfinder)
- When senior cats are adopted, they seem to understand that they’ve been rescued, and are all the more thankful for it.
- A senior cat’s personality has already developed, so you’ll know if he or she is a good fit for your family.
- You can teach an old cat new tricks (I do every day with my own cats!): Senior cats have the attention span and impulse control that makes them easier to train than their youthful counterparts.
- A senior cat may very well already know basic household etiquette (like not attacking your feet at night) anyway!
- In particular, senior cats are often already litter trained and are less likely to “forget” where the box is.
- A senior cat won’t grow any larger, so you’ll know exactly how much cat you’re getting.
- Senior cats are often content to just relax in your company, unlike younger cats, who may get into mischief because they’re bored.
- Speaking of relaxing, senior cats make great napping buddies.
- Senior cats often know that scratching posts (not furniture) are for scratching and toys (not hands or feet) are for biting.
- Senior cats are some of the hardest to find homes for — so when you adopt a senior cat, you’re truly saving a life.
- Adopter must be 65 years of age or older (proof of age required)
- Cat will be at least 8 years of age or older(some exceptions may be made on a case by case basis)
- Shelter will provide food, cat litter, and medical treatment
- Forgotten Felines & Fidos, Inc. veterinarian and board members will vote on serious medical treatment for the cat
- A cat may be declawed if the cat is healthy enough and is a suitable fit for the adopter
- If the adopter takes the cat to a veterinarian other than the Forgotten Felines & Fidos veterinarian, then the adopter assumes all financial responsibility of the veterinary visit
- If the adopter takes the cat to a veterinarian other than the FF&F veterinarian and the veterinarian recommends the cat be put down, then the adopter must contact FF&F for a second opinion.
- Adopter must provide an emergency contact person’s name to Forgotten Felines and Fidos, Inc.
- Shelter can demand the return of the cat if the adopter does not abide by the signed Senior for Seniors form
- If the Forgotten Felines and Fidos, Inc. veterinarian isn’t available for an emergency the cat will be taken to veterinarian of Forgotten Felines & Fidos’s choice:
