November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month!
At animal shelters and rescue groups across the nation, there are an abundance of healthy senior pets looking for a special home to cherish them for the rest of their lives. Although shaping the life of a youngster sounds appealing, giving a second chance to an older companion can be equally rewarding. They like to share quiet moments, are already trained and usually do not chew or scratch everything in sight. "Older pets have plenty to offer adopters – not the least of which is love," comments Jacque Schultz, ASPCA Companion Animal Programs Advisor.
King Street Cats runs an Award-Winning campaign called
What About Me? ®
where we feature our harder to adopt kitties.
Many of those kitties are senior kitties
who lost their home later in life, through no fault of their own.
Miss Kitty is one of those special kitties that we would like to highlight.
Here is her story:
My name is Miss Kitty and I arrived here on 5-6-12 after my family gave me up because of allergies. I was born in February 2004. Although I'm an older kitty, I am in good health and really hoping that someone wants a kitty with a darling personality. I am a little uncertain around the other cats here so I have kept to myself. But I love people and have a beautiful outgoing personality with them. I am a loving girl who misses having a home. Will you adopt me?
