We’ve adopted several older kitties and, I have to say, they are the most grateful, loving and well behaved companions we’ve ever had. The only drawback is the limit of time you get with them. But they are golden souls.Thanks Tim! This is a fantastic story. It reminds us all that those older shelter cats have earned the right to live out their golden years in a loving home, not a cage.Sammy is forever grateful you came along & gave him a loving Home, thank you Tim for your big Heart. 🐈⬛🐾💞💞Bless you Tim for giving Sammy the love he deserved. When my current crew have crossed the Bridge, I plan to only take in elderly cats like Sammy. I’m at the stage in life where a kitten may not make sense. But there’s no reason I couldn’t give love and comfort to some elderly feline souls in their final months/years. I’d do it now, but both my girls are “special needs” (one partially deaf and one battling cancer -both of whom get sassy with strange cats).God bless you richly, Tim for your kind and loving heart! Being old myself with no family, I totally understand how that cat felt! I’d adopt an older cat, too, but I have 2 senior dogs-11 & 13 rescues and 2 rescued cats .
