Yes, more cats!
First off, good news! Pepper has been adopted! It just goes to show, you can never predict who will leave first, because Pepper was definitely not the one I thought would find a home. I'm certainly glad he has though - Pep's got a home for Christmas! And he's not the only one:
Remember Bradley? This older guy found a home! Not only that, but his new family also adopted another older cat, a big black kitty named Andy. So huge kudos to those guys for adopting two big, older cats, who always have a harder time getting adopted.
I love older cats. Whenever I go in, I find all the ones over three years old and fuss over them. This older girl is Omega, and she is also seven (what's with the 7-year-olds?). I tried to photograph her before but it was such an appallingly bad photo I didn't dare post it. Omega has a few things going against her - she's kind of scruffy-looking, she's older, she has this tentative shyness to her, and her eyes always look like they're angry. She was surrendered in October by her owners. Looks can be deceiving though - as soon as I picked her up, Omega started purring like an engine! What this girl needs is a lot of TLC.
If anyone is looking to adopt a cat (and if you're not looking to adopt, why not?) - look at the older cats! They can be some of the most loving animals you'll ever meet.
