Older cats are often overlooked in favour of young kittens. It's understandable, who doesnt love a fat little tummy, huge loving eyes and a creature that get so tired so quickly that it will fall asleep face-first into its own food bowl? But there are some fantastic positives about adopting an older animal. Eddie was one of our older residents when his new family came looking for a new pet. With an older cat, you often get a more settled, relaxed animal and you know exactly what their personality will be; with a kitten, it's always the luck of the draw! Eddie now lives very happily in "Hexhamshire" and we've been reassured that he is "King of the Cats"!!!
Adopting an older cat can be even more rewarding than taking in a kitten
