We celebrate senior cat days for the whole month of August as it is Aging Pet Appreciation Month with Blog Paws. Pet bloggers honouring the senior members of our Cat, Dog and Pet community. Our First and Best Cat is Peanut (18) flew with us from Great Britain to New Zealand.
Peanut’s Senior Cat Days
Peanut is the last survivor of the quartet who came with us 8 years ago. She still scampers like a young kitten sometimes, and she is as much a Princess and Diva as young Phoebe Kitten is 🙂 – we love her.
Many seniors get dumped at shelters, an horrific practice that, to us, shows people need to question if they truly love their pet – if they dump it after a decade or more. Senior pets, like senior people, may change but they are, at hart, the same as they were when younger – happy and loving, perhas just a little slower to wag a tail, or conjure a soft purr for your delight.
P.P.S. Did you know today is US National Lefthanders Day? Happy South Paws folks!
