If you’re the proud pet parent of a senior cat or dog, you already know how lucky you are. The love, loyalty, and wisdom of a super senior is sure to fill the hearts of any family. Whether you already have a four-legged senior best friend or are thinking about adopting an older animal, don’t miss these 5 reminders why senior pets are the best!
3. They’ve learned to read you like no one else can: The comfort of a dog or a cat is sometimes the best cure for a bad day! Even a newly adopted senior pet has likely had many years of experience reading human emotions and will probably have no problem reading yours.
4. They’re pros at their favorite game: Your senior pooch may be a little slower at retrieving that ball, but he’s still a pro. (Speak with your vet about supporting your aging pet’s mobility with a joint supplement!)
5. They’re thankful for their time with you: Whether it’s out and about for an adventure together or just quality time on a comfy couch, senior pets just want to be loved and truly appreciate their time with you.
