Here is a very special little cat sanctuary in Pasadena, CA. It’s the Cat Cottage Senior Sanctuary, created to provide a loving environment for elderly and special needs kitties. The space itself is a tiny cottage, with lots of windows and an outdoor enclosure overlooking a garden, a skylight, a huge comfy chair, and a loft with a window seat. There are lots of high spots for kitties to nap. There is a handmade kitty stairway leading from the ground to the loft, as well as catwalks surrounding the perimeter walls. The Cottage has air conditioning, heat, a vaulted ceiling with a dimmable chandelier, and classical music playing softly at all times. What a perfect environment for these special senior kitties!
The Cat Cottage was built to be a sort of “exclusive retirement village” for elderly and special needs kitties that nobody wanted to adopt because they were considered too old, unhealthy, or personality challenged. This is unfairly so often the case with senior cats who all deserve to spend their golden years in loving homes.
The Cat Cottage is not accepting any new residents at this time, but you can follow them on Facebook to see the beautiful senior cats in their care, as well as listings for senior cats that are available for adoption. Next time you’re thinking of adding another furry family member, please consider adopting a senior cat!
