PAWS "Senior Cat Sunday" Event

Sammy

Hi! It's me, Sammy, and I'm here to tell you about a great event being held at PAWS this Sunday, March 25th. That's when the shelter will be hosting "Senior Cat Sunday," from NOON to 4:00 pm to showcase the many wonderful older adult cats looking for loving forever homes. Would you all please help me spread the word by sharing this post?

Sure, kittens are cute and all, but older cats like me (I was already an older cat when my mom and dad gotcha'd me) offer benefits kittens can't compete with. Us mature cats have personalities that are more fully developed, so you can select a cat that fits in with your lifestyle. And mature cats are mellower and often enjoy cuddling and lap time more than kittens. I know I do! :)

On to the particulars about Senior Cat Sunday. This Sunday, anyone who adopts a PAWS cat who is 7-years old or older will receive a reduced adoption fee of $75, a cat bed AND a "Kitty Swag Bag" filled with supplies to help your new best friend feel at home. And your new kitteh will already be spayed or neutered, current on his/her vaccines, microchipped and tested for FIV and FeLV!

I sure hope you'll visit PAWS on Sunday to meet all the pawsome, happy 7+ year old cats currently looking for new homes. They may no longer be kittens, but since indoor cats can live up to 20 years or more, they still have lots of love to give. Oh, and there are also several bonded pairs of mature cats (like Derek and Andy and Krystal and Loreen) there who are looking for a home together. If you adopt a pair of mature kittehs, you'll receive an even BIGGER reduction on the adoption fee!

Thanks for reading! :)

Hugs and headbonks,

Sammy

  2. What an incredible idea! We know Seniors are often overlooked and make the most wonderful companions...heck three of the WDA is over 10 and Yo and I are 7! We hope that lots of people come and discover their heart connection this weekend. We will be sure to give a shoutout although we do live far away!

  4. This is a great idea & we wish you lots of success! You never know how long a cat will live. We took in a 10 year cat who lived to 18. One cat we adopted when he was a year old died of leukemia when he was 7, so age is no guarantee. It's not uncommon for cats to live to 17 or 18 these days.

  10. This is great! MomKatt is all about senior cats being GREAT adoption choices! I mean, she loves kittens with a vengeance, but there's something to be said for a kitty already out of that stage.

    Good luck!

  23. +1, shared on FB and Tweeted. ^_^

    Let's just hope somebody shares it.

    Now, that's a great idea. For real? A goody bag and reduced fee plus a kitty bed? What else could owners ask for?!? Not only do they get a great pet but they no longer need to shop for accessories anymore!

    Huggies and Cheese,
