Older Cats Are Cleaner, Self
Older cats are cleaner and self-cleer than cats that are older. Older cats do not need your help with regular grooming, unless they have long hair. Loose stools usually mean more clean-up on both your cat's hind end and the litter box, as well as odors. Kittens have baby teeth that need to fall out before their adult teeth come in. Older animals are hardier, less breakable by children, and know how to get out of the way to avoid being stepped on. Older pets are less likely to be adopted and risk living in a shelter or foster home. It usually isn't the fault of the adult cat to end up without a family. Older stray cats may have never had a home to begin with. . . .
