When you get a cat as a kitten, obviously, it grows up. It is a fact of life.
Kittens, and younger cats, seem to get a bit of a cooler reputation than older cats. We always talk about how fun and cute cats are when they are younger, but how about when they get older?
Older cats are just as lovely as young cats--even though they are less likely to be adopted. Older cats may have special needs and they may not be as playful, but they are just as lovely.
Check out these pictures of old cats that will melt your heart! And, as always, don't forget to share your senior cat pictures in the comments below!!

2 years ago today I walked into a Petsmart and met a cat named Sonny who no one would adopt because he was 13 years old, covered in fleas, underweight, and had a mouth full of rotten teeth that had to be removed. He came home with me that night and it was the best decision I’ve ever made. from r/BeforeNAfterAdoption
