7 Advantages of adopting a grown cat

Yes, baby kittens are the sweetest and the cutest. Cutie pies, as they say. However, there can be many, many reasons why a human will prefer a grown cat for a pet. We grown-ups also have our charms!

  1. We grown-up cats have a harder time getting adopted. We’re just as gorgeous, but many of you prefer a baby kitten, so we get left at the shelter really pining for a chance to be part of your family. We have our little feelings too you know, so please choose a big cat.
  2. Young kittens can be little rascals. Yes, it’s true that when we’re kittens, we’re adorable, but it’s no less true that we’re like bulls in a china shop. If you want a more calm and collected cat that already knows the ropes, then a grown-up cat is what you want.
  3. Like any baby animal, baby kittens require a lot more attention. If you’re someone who doesn’t have a lot of time or if you don’t want to have to be going out of your way taking care of your pet, then choose an older kitty.
  4. If dirt, dust or kitty litter make you nervous, bear in mind that a little kitten has not as yet mastered the art of effectively licking itself, so you certainly have no other choice than to befriend a grown cat who already knows how to spend hours grooming itself.
  5. We grown-up cats know how to use the litterbox. I don’t believe I need to explain any further. You know what I mean.
  6. If you have small children, baby kittens are in jeopardy because your babies think that our babies are toys and can hurt them. In this case, a grown cat can take care of itself better in a family setting.
  7. If you are a sympathetic person, think about the fact that many grown cats wind up at the shelters, all alone through no fault of their own. Do yourself a favor and take one of them home. You’ll have a very thankful friend for life.


These are some of the reasons that come to my own mind in favor of your choosing to adopt a grown cat, but I’m sure that if you give it a little thought, you will think of many more.
