Senior Catizen "Retirement Home"

While this is currently a limited program, Senior Cat Action Network currently has two senior catizens in its House of Purrs Eldercare (or "HOPE") Program. At this time, we are not able to accept any additional cats into our care due to space and financial constraints.

Sati (estimated to be 16 years old) arrived at Senior Cat Action Network as an owner surrender. Her owner moved into a nursing home and no family members were able to take her in, leaving her at risk of going to a shelter. She is an incredibly loving cat that craves human affection. Although we had no medical history for Sati, she was diagnosed by our vet with hyperthyroidism and is doing well with her daily meds. She had a full dental in March 2022, which left her with one canine and one incisor, though it doesn't stop her from eating everything she sees and yelling to be sure you know she wants to eat...again! Despite her great appetite, Sati does have some GI issues, which is caused by either Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) or low grade intestinal lymphoma.

Timothy (estimated to be 16 years old) arrived at Senior Cat Action Network from the NYC Animal Care Center in Brooklyn. Found all alone on the streets, hiding under someone's car, he was full of mats, dirty, stinky and emaciated with some hair loss and wounds on his back paws. Timothy scanned for a microchip, but no one came for we did! Despite whatever he had been through and for however long, it is clear to us that Timothy has known love because he loves to give and receive love. He purrs and meows when he sees you and just wants to gaze into your eyes, which we think is how he hypnotizes you to get whatever he wants! And...he is an expert biscuit maker, even using his back legs to get the job done. Timothy is being treated for anemia and kidney disease. We remain on alert for seizures as he had a seizure on 11/24/2022, which we believe was caused by Feline Audiogenic Reflex Seizures (FARS).

Gracie (estimated to be 14 years old) arrived at Senior Cat Action Network from the NYC Animal Care Center after her owner passed away and a friend of a relative surrendered her to the shelter. Sadly, she was quickly slated for euthanasia when a mass was noted in her abdomen. Even though the shelter determined she has just months to live, we felt she deserved to live those last months happy and loved - not sad from missing her owner and confused and scared by the shelter environment. Our partner internal medicine specialist has diagnosed Gracie with intermediate / high grade lymphoma and started her on steroids to give her the best quality of life for whatever time she has left. Despite her diagnosis, Gracie is all love and will purr whenever she sees you. She is happy and safe and that is what she will remember...and that is what she deserves.

In Loving Memory

Not all angels have wings...some have whiskers

Our hearts are forever impacted by the amazing super seniors that have been part of our organization but are no longer here with us in physical form. Whether their time with us was long or short, they were deeply loved and that will never change. These cats were entrusted to our care by often loving owners and we were honored to care for and love them as though they were our own.

Rest easy sweet angels...until we meet again.

Sammy was our first "retiree", arriving at Senior Cat Action Network in August 2020 at the age of 17 after his owner's health declined and he was no longer able to care for his sweet ginger boy. Sammy was an exceptionally charismatic and loving cat that was always happy and loved to sleep under the covers at night with our Founder. If not sleeping with a human, Sammy loved his cuddle bed and you could always find him snoozing in one. He was our deeply loved gingerbread man and we miss hearing him holler and paw at us for more treats.

Jesse was our second "retiree", arriving at Senior Cat Action Network in July 2021 at the age of 17 after her parents moved to an assisted living facility out of state. Upon arrival, we learned that Jesse was a purebred Maine Coon and, true to her breed, she was a gentle and loving cat. Jesse loved to be spoken to and would purr no matter what the topic of conversation was. She also loved to receive kisses, being sure to lean in to fully receive them - in turn, she would give kisses back by licking your nose. Jesse was a stubborn cat, but knew what she liked and didn't like. We loved it and miss her immensely...especially her amazing bleps!

Daisy was our sixth "retiree", arriving as an owner surrender in November 2022 at the age of 15 1/2. Although Daisy was a purebred Maine Coon, we were provided very limited information about her upon surrender. We did know that she was "ill" with a mass and that her owner could not afford her care financially or personally. We didn't know that Daisy's mass was a carcinoma that bled a lot, resulting in severe anemia; that she had tumors growing inside her urethra and her vulva; and that somehow this sweet girl had sustained two fractured ribs before she came to us. We didn't know that the doctors would tell us that all we could do was shower Daisy with love and provide her with the best care for the time she had remaining. Yet, even if we knew this, we still would have helped Daisy because every super senior cat deserves a chance to know love and safety in their final chapter. Our time together was much shorter than we hoped, but we know that Daisy knew that she was loved unconditionally and that is why we do what we do. Daisy mattered and she will always be in our hearts.

These super seniors are now living their best retirement life with their new family...happy life!

Mickey (estimated to be 18 years old) arrived at Senior Cat Action Network from the NYC Animal Care Center in Brooklyn on 02/26/2022. When this sweet boy was at risk due to a URI, we were able to get him out of the shelter and into a safe and loving home with our first ever foster, thanks to the amazing help of AmsterDog Rescue. Mickey has some medical issues going on, including kidney disease and GI issues, which his foster parents (now his forever parents!) are learning to manage. For now, he is loving his new life and has proven to be a total lover and a true couch potato! Mickey loves his food, treats and quality time with his new family. This sweet boy really hit the jackpot and now will spend his final chapter being loved and completely adored.
