Letter: Please consider a senior pet when adopting


Re: Shelter launches campaign to find home for cat in care for 600 days, May 30

article continues below

On March 31, 2018 my feisty 14-year-old orange tabby died suddenly. I was devastated and immediately began looking for another cat to fill the void.

I met Nibbles a few days later. Nibbles had been at the Delta Community Animal Shelter for about six months, during which time the staff there fought to bring him back to good health and make him suitable for adoption.

Nibbles was 13 with diabetes and several gastric problems, but his winning personality made him the cat for me. We have made our "forever home" together.

Thanks to the Delta Community Animal Shelter for caring for this delightful little guy and for making both of us very happy. I hope that anyone thinking of adopting a new pet might consider making it a senior.
