Mature Cats Have Lots of Love to Give
30 November 2018
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.
Mature cats looking for homes include (click their name to learn more):Malucie
, aged 12, has been at the NCAC for more than a month. She is a sweet loving girl who used to love cuddling up to her owner on the sofa. She is chatty and loves to have her head rubbed. Malucie would prefer to be the only pet in an adult-only home, ideally with a garden for the occasional mooch. If you are looking for a sofa buddy, then please come and meet darling Malucie.Daisy
is 13 years old and was recently our Cat of the Month. She is such a dear and loves a tickle under the chin. Also very curious and inquisitive, Daisy loves to sit in full view so she doesn’t miss anything, so a nice window at home with a good vantage point will keep Daisy entertained. Daisy needs a calmer home with a garden to explore on sunnier days.Smokey
is a slightly shy 13 years old boy. But once he gets to know you, he is a delight. He relaxes and enjoys all the love and attention you can give him. Feathers are his favourite toy to while away the hours with, and he isknown to have a mad half hour racing in and out the catflap for no apparent reason! A calmer home would be good for Smokey, wth an owner who will give him time to settle and gain confidence in his new environment.
As always, 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 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.
