Listing a Senior Friend with Retired Friends


What makes a Retired Friend a Senior Friend?

Senior Friends is a program for listing cats who meet all the normal qualifications for Retired Friends, but are aged 8 years or older.

Why have a special listing for older cats? As we all know, adult cats can be harder to place than kittens, but cats aged 8 years or older present special problems. A healthy eight-year-old cat can easily have many years of good life ahead of them. The problem is finding a home willing to take an older cat. This is meant to draw special attention to these beloved cats.

What is Senior Friends not intended to be?

Senior Friends is not, nor should it be considered, a "dumping ground" for undesirable cats. These older cats should have the potential to be excellent, happy pets, but who would do better with the individual attention available in a good pet home. This is not a program for listing cats with degenerative and/or contagious medical conditions, such as cancer, FIP, or feline leukemia.

What if my Senior Friend has health problems? Should I list the cat as a Special Friend or as a Senior Friend?

A cat with a health problem should be listed as a Special Friend, not as a Senior Friend. Senior Friends are for cats who meet every qualification for Retired Friends, but need special attention drawn to them because they are older.

What if my Senior Friend is a rescue? Should I list the cat as a Rescued Friend or as a Senior Friend?

A rescue cat should be listed as a Rescued Friend, not as a Senior Friend. Senior Friends are for cats who meet every qualification for Retired Friends, but need special attention drawn to them because they are older.

OK. I want to list a Senior Friend. What do I do?

Please return the Retired Friends FAQ for information about how to submit a Retired Friend. Fill out the form as normal, but be sure to request "Senior Friends" at the beginning of the submission form.
