I love the cat in your photo.
I have but one senior boy left from my previous "cat herd" and I worry about adopting any more, young or old, at age 68.
My local rescues are overloaded with kittens now, and I've been sending 5 lb. bags of KMR Replacement milk, and all the kitten/cat food my budget will allow.
It makes me sad to know it is a never ending problem, but I do try to help as best I can.

@Witchy Woman Thank you for helping the shelter and especially cats. I have 5 and cannot adopt another as I live in a condo that the association prohibits more than 2 animals. BUT, I have not told anyone how many cats I have. I would love to have a bunch more because cats are so adorable but I would need a shelter of my own. You are a really good person for doing what you do.

If my 2 sr. kitties would be receptive to more kitties, I certainly would adopt more. But, with their snooty little noses, they boycott & hide in the basement rafters & stop eating. At least they were that way years ago when we tried it.
At this point in their elder lives, I couldn't possibly cause them anymore stress.

And, that is precisely why I didn't adopt a younger cat to keep my senior boy "company."
He is very shy and I didn't want to risk making him miserable or stressed (he is diabetic).
I think older cats can adapt to new arrivals, but it is a risk I didn't want to take again. I tried it years ago, and it never worked out. Those cats avoided each other like poison!

I understand. We need to watch out for them at every stage of their lives. I hope to have mine as long as possible so long as they're healthy & not in pain.
When DH adopted another large dog I made a firm statement that it had to be "cat friendly." His other dog, (as much as I loved Cooper) chased them both out of the living room every time & wouldn't let them up on Poppy's lap. He owned both the room & DH! Not to mention his very loud, constant barks. But, Cooper was Mr. Personality! He's still missed a 1 1/2 yrs. later.
Wishing you & your Sweet Mr. Kitty many more happy days ahead together.

Thank you. I'm sure we all know our furbabies' personalities & health issues at this point in their lives. Caution, love & patience are the words of the day.
Please give your Sweet Frankie & Henry hugs for me.
