Mature Cats Have Lots of Love to Give
22 September 2017
Mature cats still have so much to offer. Although they might have clocked up a few years, there is still a lof of life to share.
They can be homely and extremely generous in their affections, and just want a comfortable, safe, loving home in which to enjoy life.
Sadly, these qualities are often overlooked and they can become long-term residents in care.
Take 14-year-old Poppy, one of our more mature residents who is looking to be rehomed.
Poppy is a lovely cat. She enjoys lots of attention and strokes, and loves to play with her toys, especially balls.
With the right introduction to a new home, Poppy would make an ideal companion to a family with children. If there is a garden for her to enjoy the sun, all the better.
The team at the NCAC will be on hand to give any prospective new owner the best advice on how to integrate Poppy happily into a family home.
You can be confident that our vets have given all our cats a thorough health check, so you will have an up-to-date record of their health from the moment you chose to adopt them.
Also, our cats all come with four weeks free pet insurance with PetPlan, which is guaranteed to continue regardless of your cat's age, if you so wish. Many other insurance companies do not insure older cats, which is why we chose PetPlan as our partner.
When you take out insurance after the initial four weeks, you will receive another four weeks free, plus the NCAC will benefit from a percentage each time you renew your policy.
Older cats make lovely companions and still have a lot to offer. They tend to go out less, so you have the privilege of their company more. Their hunting days may well be behind them too - although some older cats do flout the rules and are not prepared to give in to their old age. Just like humans.
All they are looking for is love and companionship, food in their tummy and a feeling of safety and security in a warm home.
Please consider an older cat like Poppy when thinking about a new addition to your family. They have a lot of love still to share.
Giving an older cat another chance in life is the true meaning of rescue.
