For the Love of Cats Celebrates National Adopt A Senior Pet Month

Oh my! Here is an 8-year-old grey and white cat that is nothing short of awesome. Pickles just can’t get enough attention. He is in your face with his loud purr and adorably cute face pleading to be pet and loved on. His front paw gently grabs you to bring you to your important task of chin and neck rubs. You’d be in a pickle not to adopt him!

For the Love of Cats started a program to promote senior cat adoptions in 2010. Since then, almost 200 senior cats have found homes throughout Collier County with their help. Their partners are Domestic Animal Services of Collier County, Naples Cat Alliance, Volunteer Services for Animals and Camp Many Paws.  

In celebration of November’s National Adopt a Senior Pet Month, For the Love of Cats is again providing funding to pay for adoption fees and provide a complete care and transport kit for senior cats over 5 years old adopted to approved seniors over the age of 55. Their year-round program promotes the adoption of senior cats that can add so much to the lives of seniors in need of companionship. 

This year especially, there are so many seniors alone at home that desperately need some purrfect companionship without the initial financial burden of adoption. Studies have proven that pets add years, happiness, health, and purpose to the lives of seniors. Having such a loving partner in life that helps you get out of bed to feed them breakfast and talk to every day can be a lifesaver.  

Many senior cats languish in shelters being overlooked for the younger cats and kittens. Their life has gone from a quiet sunny couch to being in a loud, sometimes unfriendly, group housing environment. They deserve more than this in their golden years. For the Love of Cats is determined to make their stay as short as possible and to help seniors both human and cat alike. We all need love. We all need companionship.  

Seniors for Seniors is one the most heartfelt programs available through For the Love of Cats. We are committed to continuing to help seniors find the love of their life.  

Meet several cats that are more than ready to snuggle, purr, nap and while away the day with their new purrson.
