Did you know there are just as many, if not more, older cats and dogs in shelters, as there are younger pets? One reason, a lot of people are more drawn to the cuteness of puppies, kittens, and adolescent-aged pets. They are charmed by all those puppy kisses and the over-abundance of personality and energy. Not always, but often, that never-ending energy tires us out quicker than we thought it would. And those cute little puppy antics? They are quickly overshadowed by the reality that those little fur balls are peeing and pooping machines. In truth, there are many other positive reasons to consider adopting a pet five years and older.
Catherine wanted to adopt a pit bull for the longest time. Her husband Jon…not so much. Knowing Catherine it was just a matter of time, a little pleading, and a whole lot of pushing. Jon's skepticism was not at all unusual, for two reasons - one, there is often uncertainty if you have never owned a pit bull before and secondly, he was really hoping they would someday soon have a baby. Perhaps he was the more realistic and practical one because he knew a new baby would already be a huge adjustment. But Catherine...not so much. :)
