f you’re looking to add a new addition to your family you’re probably considering a cute, cuddly little puppy or kitten. But if you’re wanting a true companion (and possibly less work!) then a senior pet might be the better option.
Here are some good reasons why a senior pet can be a good choice:
1. Senior pets are mostly toilet trained which means you have more time to play with your new friend
2. You know what you are getting when it comes to size, coat length and temperament
3. Senior pets are generally more mellow, relaxed and independent
4. You are saving a life and giving a pet a second chance – and you’ll be surprised how most pets seem to know it!
