Adult cats are the most looked over pets in shelters, but did you know they can actually make the best pets? Many adult cats spend the rest of their lives in a shelter, meanwhile kittens are the first to be adopted. Before adopting a kitten, pause to consider if a kitten is the right choice for you, because maybe an adult is the better fit. Here are 9 reasons why adult cats make great pets.
1. What you see is what you get
What does that mean? Well, kittens are like babies, they are still learning and haven't grown into their personality quite yet. Adult cats on the other hand are fully developed and have their personalities laid out on the table for you to see.
2. An older cat doesn't mean a defective cat
People may assume that the older cat is in the shelter because something was wrong with him/her and that they are damaged goods. There are many explanations on why that adult kitty is in a shelter. The cat may of been a stray or may of out lived their owner and had no where to go. They could of been lost and there was no microchip to locate an owner. Unfortunately for the cat, some owners just didn't want the cat anymore, either because they were moving or the family develops allergies. Whatever the reason may be, it's usually no fault by the cat.
