Older cats don’t have it easy. 

We already know that old cats don’t get adopted as much as most people want and adorable little kitty. And I can understand their side as well since who wouldn’t want to spend as much time with their beloved pet as they want. However, that doesn’t mean older cats don’t deserve all the love this world can give them.

It honestly hurts to see older cats reaming in shelters until their end and nobody bothers to adopt the ones that really need it. After all, kittens get adopted pretty easily but older cats are mostly left behind. And it is truly heartbreaking since they have the most love to give anyway.

About 82 percent of kittens get adopted, but as they get older the likelihood drops, and once they pass around 18 months old, only 60 percent of cats get adopted.

That is similar to what happened to this gentleman. he is a 16-year-old cat that lost his home and was left with nowhere to go. Until the sanctuary found him and provided him another loving home.

This lovely cat’s name is Orion and he is currently residing in Kitty Adventure Rescue League situated at Fort Worth, Texas. It took him a long while to get comfortable enough in his new home. According to his caretakers, he was pretty scared and anxious when he first came.

However, he has changed into a cuddly and friendly cat since then.

He lost his only home, and he’s unsure of his new one, but he sure likes to sneak up and cuddle when you’re taking a nap. Welcome home, Orion. We’re happy to have him. -Karyn Poplin

And we can definitely see that he likes long, naps, always asking for more attention and cuddles. But then again, which cat doesn’t like these things? It took him time to get out of his shell but it was totally worth it.
