Senior cats can be tough to place in a furever home, but making one part of your family could be one of the best decisions you’ll ever make.

Meet Knoll, an 11-year-old male tabby who weighs in at nearly 17 pounds. He has a big heart and calm demeanor, and he’s ready to be your furever friend. To learn more about Knoll, visit his profile with the Wisconsin Humane Society.

“Senior animals are the best. They’re usually trained, calmer and have fully developed personalities that won’t change like that of some younger animals,” WHS spokesperson Angela Speed noted. “Knoll will likely lounge around, greet you at the door when you return home from work, and keep you company as you watch Friday night movies.”

While it can be difficult to contemplate fewer years with your pet because they’re older when you bring them home, Speed urges potential families to consider the joy, love, and comfort you’ll be giving Knoll during the second – and best – half of his life.

“Some people balk at adopting an older cat, but fortunately, there are others who recognize what a treasure an older animal can be – and how rewarding it is to ensure that the second half of their lives are the best half!” she said.

Knoll is available for adoption at the WHS Racine campus on Chicory Road, just west of Highway 32.
