Bow-Tie’s Bulletin – July 10, 2017

Bow-Tie wants you to guess his age
Dear Everyone,

Guess how old I am.

Look closely at my face and see if you can guess.

I look good for my age, so don’t be fooled.

Give up?

I am 9 1/2 years old.

 

Why have I revealed my age?

Because I am considered a senior cat.

Any cat over the age of 8 (7.5 is close enough) is considered to be a senior.

 

Senior cats are often overlooked in shelters, because of their age.

I’m here to dispel that myth!

 

Bow-Tie in the beginningI was 7 1/2 years old when I came into Cat Depot, and considered a senior.

At that time I didn’t look very good, and I felt even worse.

Someone gave this senior a chance, and now I have a wonderful life.

 

My mission is to help other cats, particularly special needs cats.

But seniors need help too.

So, today I want to introduce some of my senior friends.

My hope is someone will fall in love with each one of them and give them a furever home.

 

 

AslanThis is Aslan.

Aslan came to Cat Depot as a stray.

He had a home at one time.

We don’t know how he ended up a stray.

He is a little shy, because he’s new in the shelter, but an ear rub makes him your best friend.

Aslan is 10 1/2 years young.

 

 

 

GraceThis is Grace.

Grace was surrendered by her family because of allergies.

She is understandably confused and stressed, having lost her home.

She loves attention and would adjust purrfectly into a quiet new home.

Grace is 8 years young.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Patty CakesThis is Patty Cakes. Feel free to shorten that to Patty if you wish.

Patty Cake’s purrson had to go to a nursing home, and she came to Cat Depot.

She is sad for her purrson, and sad for herself.

Some of the other cats told her she wouldn’t get a home, because she is 11 years old.

She told them 11 is middle age for a cat, and to hiss off!

Patty Cakes is a sweet old girl.

 

 

 

Torrie DetectiveHere is Torrie the Detective.

Torrie isn’t really a detective, she just played one recently at Critter Camp.

She was a great helper and is a sweet girl who loves a good head rub.

She is special needs.

She doesn’t have a tail and sometimes leaves little treasures outside the litter box.

Torrie is 8 1/2 years young.

 

 

 

 

Mattie with bow tieAnd finally, here is Mattie.

She’s sporting a bow tie in an effort to get adopted.

She’s in the “chubby kitty pod” but that just means there is more of her to love!

Mattie is social and affectionate, and 7 1/2 years young.

(If she gets adopted, I’ll make sure she gets a better looking bow tie. Good try anyway, Mattie.)

 

 

 

 

So, here’s the information on adopting a senior cat:

The event is called the Cat Depot Classic

It happens Friday, July 14 at 11 AM until July 16 at 5 PM.

The reduced adoption fee for senior cats 8 years and older (7 1/2 is close enough) will be $25.00

With each Senior Adoption you will get:

A clinic visit certificate worth $30.00

A gift bag including a bed, bowls, treat, etc worth $40.00

 

Marianne and Bow-TieMiss Marianne helped me with my adoption papers when I was 7 1/2 years old.

We were both very happy I found my furever home.

She and many others are waiting to help YOU adopt a senior cat.

 

Do it for me.

Do it for yourself.

Most of all, do it for a senior cat!

 

Love you!

Bow-Tie

  1. I love this message, Bowtie, cause me and Daisy Doodles are seniors too. I sure don’t feel like a senior and I can still beat my 5 year old brother in a race! I heard my Mom say she would be at Cat Depot to help with Senior adoptions. Hoping all of our senior friends get adopted!

  2. Yes it’s so true! I’m a cat veterinarian and cats are living very long lives now! So a 9-13 year old cat, though technically a senior, can live many long happy years in a new home! We routinely see 18 and 19 year old cats doing well. Be sure to consider giving a new lease on life to a “pre-loved” senior kitty – they are true kitty angels.
