Sweet girl Sanoma is still my foster and I am super confident that one day she will be adopted by the perfect family. If you have been following Sanoma’s journey you know that she was saved from the Mineral Wells Shelter along with her five babies. All of her babies have been adopted but she is still here because simply she is over a year old. Let me give you 3 reasons why adopting an adult cat is better than a kitten
- What you see is what you get.
When you adopt an adult cat, you know what you are getting. Sure, kittens are cute, but you never know what the future holds. An adorable kitten could grow up to be a really ugly puss. This is a big risk. Go for the sure thing. Take a sweet-faced old Tabby.
- Adult cats aren’t as “chewsy.”
Kittens are like human children: everything goes in their mouths. Whether teething or just exploring bits of the world around them, kittens can be very destructive little bundles of fur. Kittens chew on shoes, the corners of books, ear lobes, carpet tassels, electrical cords, drapery strings, plants, and much, much more. Adult cats typically chew less, if at all. They tend to save their energy for more important activities, like tormenting the neighbor’s Terrier.
- Adult cats don’t “litter” as much.
Kittens play, sunbathe, build sandcastles, and even sleep in their litter boxes. And then there’s a game called “poo-hockey,” where a piece of dried waste is removed from the box and batted around the floor until it disappears under a major appliance or piece of furniture. People who adopt older cats happily miss this stage of feline development. Adult cats understand the purpose of a litter box and will usually cooperate with your efforts to keep theirs tidy.
I can assure you that if you adopted Sanoma you would be getting a great cat and if that doesn’t convince you then let these pictures show she is still very playful and great with babies or kids. Sanoma is super gentle with my 14 month old daughter and will play with her non-stop…here are more pictures to see. Now you can see she is pretty perfect and the next thing you can do is go to Pawsitive Karma Rescue and click on How To Adopt, once you’re done reading that page head on over to Cat Questionnaire and fill it out. Someone for the PKR team will contact you within 24 hours. The process is super easy and so worth it!
