Senior Cats Make Excellent Companions for Senior Humans

As we grow older, companionship becomes more important than ever. This is true not just for humans, but for animals as well. Cats that end up in shelters have often lost both their human and feline friends. They can become depressed and withdrawn, not unlike people who grieve the loss of dear family and friends. Cats long for companionship; and are ever so grateful when they find it.

There are many reasons why adopting an adult cat is a great decision, especially for an older person. Adult cats are generally calmer, already trained, and their personalities are well developed. The devotion shown by older rescue cats is extremely rewarding. A cat can provide loving companionship and an opportunity for a person to interact and bond, especially when their family is far away. Having a pet helps reduce stress and can improve one’s mental and physical health.

If you’re ready to welcome a new friend into your home please call the North Country SPCA today at (518) 873-5000 to find out who’s waiting for you.
