Often times, senior cats are overlooked at shelters in favor of younger kittens. But at Cat Town, our goal is to give every cat a chance to find home, and that's why seniors are a huge part of our mission. Often, this starts with finding the cat a good foster home where they can relax and take time to adjust.

Volunteer Michaela P. has fostered several senior cats for Cat Town, and also helps with the Forgotten Kitten Project. I talked with her about her fostering experience and why people should consider fostering or adopting a senior cat.

Catching Up With Cat Town Alum: Woolsey

Catching Up With Cat Town Alum: Woolsey

For Adopt-a-Senior-Pet month we’re turning the spotlight on Woolsey, a special senior cat whose story shows what a difference compassionate care can make in the life of a cat. His story also demonstrates the importance of Cat Town’s mission to help senior and less fortunate cats find their way out of the shelter and into loving homes.

Senior cat Woolsey came to Cat Town in the early summer of 2016, after enduring a rough few years. He had been surrendered at Oakland Animal Services (OAS) after his previous owner kept him outside in their yard. Woolsey also had some health issues and was losing weight. He was difficult to handle and would only allow a few quick pets while he was eating. Things didn’t look good for Woolsey.
