For example, a kitten may need more attention than an older cat as they tend to have more energy, whereas older cats tend to be calmer and they are less likely to need supervision.
Everybody’s needs and wishes are different so we put together a fun quiz to help our supporters decide what type of cat they should adopt. We were quite surprised by the results!

Caring for an older cat in their twilight years brings a tremendous joy and many owners actively decide to adopt an older cat because of the endearing qualities they can offer. With their wandering days behind them, older cats tend to stay closer to home and appreciate gentle affection. Find out more about caring for an older cat by reading our Essential Guide: Elderly cats.
Cats are generally very good at adapting their lifestyle to cope with a disability, allowing them to still enjoy a good quality of life. Our Cats with disabilities leaflet describes cats with some more common types of disability – blind cats, deaf cats, three-legged cats and wobbly cats affected by cerebellar hypoplasia.
