8 Reasons to adopt a Senior (or “older”) pet:     1.  When senior pets are adopted, they seem to understand that they’ve been rescued & are all the more thankful for it.     2.  A senior pet’s personality has already developed, so you’ll know if he or she is a good “fit” for your family.     3.  You can teach an old dog (or cat) new tricks.  Senior pets have the attention span & impulse control that makes them easier to train then their youthful counterparts.  And they may already know basic commands.     4.  Adult animals are often more practical for families with children, as well as senior citizens.     5.  Senior pets are often already housetrained.     6.  Senior pets won’t grow any larger, so you will know exactly how much pet you’re getting.     7.  Senior pets are often content just to relax in your company, unlike younger pets who may get into mischief because they’re bored.     8.  Senior pets are some of the hardest to find homes for.  Adopt & save a life.

A Special Place    Author Unknown

You have a “Special Place,’ dear Lord, that I know you’ll always keep.  It’s a “Special Place” reserved for dogs [cats] when they quietly fall asleep:  with large airy kennels & a yard for hiding bones [insert words appropriate to your cat].  With wide green fields & flowers for those who never knew about running freely under your sky of perfect blue.  Lord, I know you keep this “Special Pace,” & so, to You I pray, for one  beloved dog [cat] who recently passed away.  He [she] was full of strength & love, & so very wise.  The puppy [kitten] look she once had has long since left his [her] eyes.  She is a special gift to you, dear Lord, by a friend of mine.  She went to join his [her] ancestors in your land that is divine.  So, speak to ‘”Nicholas” [your cat’s name] softly please & give him [her] a warm “Hello.”  She’s a special gift to you, dear Lord, from [your name] who loved him [her] so.
