Senior animals can have a harder time finding homes, but they make excellent pets! Ladybug is an example of a senior cat who has found a new home to fill with joy.
When Ladybug was 15 years old, she was surrendered by her owners to Larimer Humane Society. Her new family was looking for a sweet, loveable cat, and Ladybug caught their eye when she stuck her paw out of the cage to reach for them as they passed by. They fell in love with her little chirps and took her home.
Ladybug loves snuggling. She climbs right up on her dad's chest, and loves to nap right on top of her humans. She loves to be kissed on the nose, and responds with head bumps. She enjoys a close, loving bond with her family.
Ladybug's family highly recommends adopting senior animals. Senior animals are already potty trained and have often already been exposed to being around other animals and kids. They're often calmer, and it's easier to know what kind of personality you're getting.
Senior animals also seem to be grateful that you chose them. And you get the reward of knowing you're helping an animal live out the rest of her days feeling loved and cared for.
Ladybug's mom says Ladybug has added more joy to their lives than they could ever have imagined. They consider themselves the lucky ones!
