Sunday Catinee: Awesome Senior Kitty PSA

Sparkle's Sunday Catinee

Here are 10 great reasons to adopt an older cat, starring Jack-Jack, an 18-year-old guy who was living at Big Cat Rescue. Chris Poole, the human who shot the video, works at the sanctuary and took care of him for about year. Jack-Jack now lives with a friend in a big house with other (small) kitties.

If you are wondering about the kitten, he is Marmalade and lives with the filmmaker (he came from a friend who needed to find him a home). So obviously Chris likes kitties of all ages — and sizes!

    That was truly pawsome….Jack-Jack is a most handsome guy and yes the kitty is adorable but there’s something way way cool about an old guy having fun – I oughta know – I’m not THAT far away from Jack’s age!

    Loved the video. Mom loves senior kitties. The one she took from a friend (it was an adoption FAIL from a kill shelter) is purring beside her as she types this. He has 2nd stage renal failure and it looks like it is getting worse, but she will do whatever she has to for him with sub-Qs, shots, special diet, whatever it takes to give him a good quality of life. She loves cats, it’s (some) people she can’t stand!

    Mom just so loves seeing the senior babies. Oh it makes her think of Robin and Admiral. They are dear and sweet and loving. I am so grateful Jack Jack has a home.

    We love that great video! Older cats don’t climb the curtains either. But we have to say, Oui Oui still chews a lot, scratches boxes in the middle of the night and likes to bite and bunny kick the mom’s hand. And she’s 7, no longer a spring chick-hen.

    Absolutely a great video. We’re so glad you shared. Our mommy likes adult cats because they do already have their unique personalities. She just hates how the adopter doesn’t get as many years with their new fur person. Nonetheless she has adopted older kitties, like our angels Chloe and Madison.
