Se­nior cats make su­per pets

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

WITH the ad­vances in vet­eri­nary care and di­etary care in re­cent years cats are liv­ing longer health­ier lives than ever be­fore. This sees many older cats com­ing into res­cue cen­tres when the own­ers die or if they stray.

Sadly when peo­ple are look­ing for a pet they all too of­ten over­look the older cats even though they will usu­ally have quite a few years of happy, healthy liv­ing and be­ing older they tend to be a bit calmer to have around than much younger cats.

Ge­orge is a lovely 12-year-old neutered male cat look­ing for a new home af­ter his owner sadly passed away, leav­ing him all alone.

He is ex­tremely friendly and affectionate and all he wants is a quiet place to call home where he will be pam­pered and loved for the rest of his years. De­spite be­ing an older fel­low, Ge­orge is still quite ac­tive so a gar­den for him to en­joy is go­ing to be es­sen­tial.

Like all cats he does his fair share of snooz­ing so he would be fine to be left if you’re out at work all day long.

Ge­orge has had a full MOT at the cat doc­tors and has been given a clean bill of health, all he needs now is some­one to love him!

Toby, aged 11, also came to us af­ter the death of his owner. He is a neutered male and like Ge­orge is ex­tremely friendly and affectionate. Toby is a calm, quiet cat, who just wants and easy life, he loves a cud­dle and will gladly snug­gle up with you in front of the TV but will be equally happy if you’re out at work all day, ready with a very warm greet­ing when you re­turn.

De­spite his age, Toby is fit as a fid­dle and has had a full MOT ready for his new fam­ily. Toby would best suit a home ei­ther with older chil­dren or no chil­dren, he isn’t very keen on other cats and he will need a gar­den to pa­trol and call his own.

Charl­ton came into our care af­ter be­ing picked up by an RSPCA In­spec­tor. He had been hang­ing around some­one’s place for sev­eral weeks al­ways look­ing for food.

He was not mi­cro-chipped so his own­ers could not be found.

We think Charl­ton is about 12 and while he is in gen­er­ally good health he is suf­fer­ing from an over-ac­tive thy­roid which is be­ing treated.

If you think you could of­fer Ge­orge, Toby or Charl­ton a home then please call us on (020) 8966 9688 or email us at: info@ rsp­camid­dle­sex.org.uk.
