The plight of older cats during kitten season

by dixie • Posted in: Foster, Pets Needing Homes, Special Needs Pets

Adult cats are often overlooked this time of year when shelters and adoption events are overrun with exciting new kittens. APA! is desperate to take in each and every kitten and pregnant mom that come into the shelter but with so many little ones in foster homes there is not much room left for adult cats. Being old is not a crime!

Currently several adult kitties (two years and older) are in APA! foster homes. These older cats may take a little longer to get adopted than those tiny kittens but there are people out there who want and love a pet who is less rowdy and probably won’t try to climb their vintage lace curtains. Most recently my seven year old foster was adopted to a loving family and we’ve even had cats as old at 14 years find their forever homes.

Meet some of the wonderful full grown cats who are patiently waiting for their forever homes:


Funny, nutty and extra plump Peanut. (read her blog!)


Luscious, lovely (and front declawed) sweetie Lola.


Charming and oh-so-cool tom cat Underwood.


Cute lap cat Chiky gets along well with other friendly felines, young and old!


Affectionate, lovebug Dixie.


R2 is partially blind but that doesn’t stop this guy, and he even likes other pets.
