Cat Care Society and Petfinder.com are celebrating November as Adopt-A-Senior-Pet Month. Petfinder.com hosts Cat Care's adoptable kitties online - click to view.
Three of CCS's adorable 'senior women' awaiting their forever home adoptions are pictured here: Krista, age 10 (left); Cotton, age 12 (top right); and Ellen, age 9 (bottom right). Here's more about each kitty:
Krista - "I have the softest fur. Have you ever seen a prettier cat? I'm very affectionate; I even give little kitty kisses but I have my moods sometime. Ill help you learn how to know when Im feeling loving and when I just want to have some me time. I don't like a lot of rowdiness. I'd rather have a more mature, quiet home. I'm just biding my time here at the shelter. In fact, Im not crazy about all the action in the main shelter, so now Im hanging out over at the business office. It's a very nice place to stay for awhile but it can't compare to a real home with a wonderful person like you."
Cotton - "Isn't that a good name to describe my fluffy, soft white fur? I was a stray kitty so it's pretty amazing that my fur coat is in such good shape. I'm just 12 years old but because of my age I'm on the CCS Perpet-U-Care program, which will pay for a portion of my health care for the rest of my life. That's a pretty good deal, don't you think? I really like people but I'm still a little wary. Being a stray kitty was a tough life, so it takes me awhile to get used to new people but Im very loyal to my friends. Won't you come visit me? I could be a really great pal."
Cotton is featured on Cat Care Society's new Cat Care Vineyards chardonnay. Take a look at the collection: http://www.benefitwines.com/catcare.
Ellen - "I was abandoned at the front door of the Cat Care Society in a carrier with my two 12 week old kittens. Can you believe that?! My kittens have already been adopted; they are real cuties but then so am I. Im a brown and white tabby and my hair is mostly short but I have a big bushy tail. Im really playful and a real cuddler but a little shy at first. Im here waiting just for you. Come visit and I know you will fall in love with me."
Abbi Collins, Adoption Manager at Denver's CCS and Kim Saunders, Petfinder.com's Vice President of Shelter Outreach and Public Relations say: "Think of a pet that is already trained and doesn't chew or scratch everything in sight -- a pet who will love you unconditionally. That's what you get when you adopt a senior pet."
