After a lifetime of love and care, older animals are likely to have arrived at the shelter after their owner is no longer physically able to care for their pet. Thrust into a bewildering shelter environment, they may be scared, confused and desperately in need of loving nurturing. Usually house-trained, and not as rambunctious as youngsters, they can be wonderful companions with so much love to share for many years.
Two neutered male cats, Angel and Fluffy, lived in a family that also included children and a small dog. They came to the League when their owner lost her home. Angel is amazingly sweet and gentle. Definitely a lap cat, he loves to be held and petted all over.
Fluffy is also a lap cat with a soft, sleek coat that lives up to his name. Ready to play and snuggle, he loves to be petted, especially chin and back scratches and purrs when he’s being held. Although the two got along well in their previous home, they are not “bonded” – they would do well going home as a dynamic duo or individually.
George is an affectionate male cat who came to the League in January because of allergies in his family. To quote one volunteer, “George loves affection! He enjoys being carried around and loves to be petted all over. He’s the ultimate lovebug and has quickly won over the hearts of all the staff and volunteers. In his previous home, George lived with a poodle mix and another cat, whom he got along with just fine. George has always lived indoors, so it is important that he continues this lifestyle. So, if you’re looking for an incredible new companion, come spend a few minutes with our main man George and you’ll surely fall in love.”
