- The world’s oldest cat, 27-year-old Flossie, lives in the U.K. with her fourth and final guardian, who adopted the then 26-year-old cat when owner number three could no longer care for her
- Flossie’s hearing and vision aren’t what they once were, but she’s an otherwise healthy cat, and sometimes even kittenish!
- Senior cats can make wonderful companions, especially for people who don’t want to ride out the rowdy “kitten stage”
- Adopting a senior cat also means you’ll be saving a life, because older cats are among the hardest pets for shelters to place
- To help them fully enjoy their golden years, it’s important to provide older cats with more frequent wellness exams, a stress-free environment, the right diet and supplement protocol, and physical and mental stimulation
