Senior cats make super pets
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.
