Senior Catizen "Retirement Home"
Senior Cat Action Network currently has three 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. However, if you are in the NJ/NY/PA area and are interested in becoming a foster with us, please reach out! We would love to be able to start building our foster base to support this amazing program and help more super senior cats.

Sammy arrived 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 this sweet ginger boy. Sammy is currently on daily medication to treat his hypertension, which was sadly left untreated previously, leaving him permanently blind from retinal hemorrhaging. He is also in the early stages of kidney disease and takes a daily supplement to help maintain his kidney values, as well as a supplement to help with his arthritis. Sammy is an exceptionally charismatic and loving cat that is always happy and loves to sleep under the covers at night with his foster.

Jesse arrived 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. Jesse (who we learned is a purebred Maine Coon) is in the early stages of kidney disease and gets chronic yeast infections in her ears. She takes a daily supplement to help maintain her kidney values and we clean her ears weekly to avoid any buildup and keep her comfortable. Jesse also takes a supplement to help with her arthritis and needs a weekly vitamin B12 shot. She is very thin for a Maine Coon, despite her good appetite, so our vet is working with us to develop a treatment plan using her recent abdominal ultrasound and bloodwork results.
Unknown birth date
Sati (estimated to be 15 years old) arrived at Senior Cat Action Network as an owner surrender on 12/30/2021. 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 have no medical history for Sati, she has been diagnosed by our vet with hyperthyroidism and has started treatment to stabilize her thyroid levels. Once this is done, we will have a better view of her other blood values and if all else is good, she will be cleared for a much needed dental cleaning.
