“Older cats make purr-fect pets too! If you’re thinking of adopting a kitten, consider a senior cat instead… They are often overlooked at animal shelters and it’s hard to find them furever homes….

“The mature gentleman featured in this video is Jack-Jack, a cat that I looked after for over a year at Big Cat Rescue where I work. He’s a great guy and now lives with a friend at a larger house with other cats and a pool! The kitten in the video is Marmalade who we adopted from a friend when he needed a home.”

  1. I adopted an older kitty at a shelter many years ago. They estimated that he was 6 years old at the time. I had him for over 12. He was the best cat with the kids. At one point my 2 year old niece was trying to reach across the table to pet him when the chair took off in the opposite direction, leaving her hanging. She grabbed his tail. As she slid to the floor, she pulled him across the table. He just looked at her, blinked, yawned & laid his head back down. Best. Cat. Ever!
