Mature Cats Have Lots of Love to Give
17 July 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:
is a regal white 15 years old boy who is very sweet and friendly. He loves strokes and to be scratched behind his ear - it makes him dribble with joy!
He is still so playful and loves to chase a ball. Chasing his tail is a new fascination for him.
Tink is missing his freedom, to go out and stroll. According to his last owner, he never goes far, preferring to stay close to home.
Tink could live with calmer children, pending a successful introduction at the centre.
So if you want to offer Tink the safety, security and love he is missing, giving him back his freedom and home comforts in his retirement years, please come and meet him.
is a dashing 15 years old gent. He is
super friendly and loves lots of attention and to curl up on a lap to be groomed and chat. A sponge ball is his current favourite toy.
Vinny was used to the quiet life in his previous home, so we would like to replicate this for him to make him the happiest he can be in his latter years.
It would be great for him to have a garden to stroll in, to take in the fresh air and get a little exercise. He misses the outside world and his freedom.
Gypsy is 14 years old and looks great on it. She is finding the hussle and bussle of centre life quite stressful, and so sits at the back of her pen much of the time.
We were told in her previous home she would sit on laps and would love to sleep at the foot of her owners bed. Gypsy loves to go outside, but would never go far, and was happy with her own garden as enough space for her.
Gypsy got on very well with the dog in her previous home, so with a slow introduction to any new dogs, Gypsy should make friends. She isn't such a fan of other cats though.
Gypsy will need time and patience to settle in her new home, as it will be quite an adjustment for her, but we are confident she will be fine
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.
