14 Senior Cats Who Got a Second Chance at Life and Love

It's all too often that people seek to adopt a pet but instantly go for the baby. Kittens and puppies are what most people seem to want but the truth is, if you've only ever adopted baby animals you're missing out.

A cat who has aged is no less worthy of your love than a kitten and an elderly cat has SO much to offer you. Senior cats have a lifetime of love they want to share and are ready to offer you. Eager to snuggle, sleep, and relax the rest of their lives in your loving embrace, I urge you to consider a senior cat the next time you go to adopt another furry friend into your home.
