    Default I'm getting my new, old kitty today

    Today, I'm doing my first pet adoption from the Humane Society. I go once a month or so to see what's what. And there has been a cat there the past three times that I've went. I decided last night that he was going to be ours.

    He is a devastatingly handsome cat, but he is a senior (8yo), so I think that is why no one has adopted him yet (and truth be told, why I wanted him so bad, I'm a sucker for everything "unwanted"). He's an 8 month old kitten, trapped in an 8yo body, and his name is Gordon (we are keeping that name, Gordon is a good cat name I think).

    Here's a pic of him, though you can't see how fluffy he is.

    Gordon is gorgeous! And I agree with WhoAmI, he isn't old. Plenty of life to share with you.

    Our other cat, Bob, is also eight years old, and he is still full of piss and vinegar. I know I hopefully have a long time with both of them.

    That's what I was thinking! He looks like he's plotting.

    Congratulations to you and Gordon! Here's to many years of happiness together.

    Awww.. good. Older kitties need families too, it's just so sad to see them in Humane Society cages, unwanted because of their age.

    Ugh. This is why I can't even go into a Humane Society, I get all misty just thinking about it.

    He's is gorgeous and I LOVE his name!! So unique! And I congratulate you on adopting an older kitty, since they need love and homes and good stuff too.
    BEST OF LUCK to everyone!

    I adopted a 4 yr old cat 2 yrs ago from SPCA and she has just been the best kitty in the world. Soooooo glad I did it. Hope you have the same experience!

    Keep us posted how things go!
