Sasha is a senior cat (seven years old). My family adopted her in January 2015. She is FANTASTIC. She loves kids and actually cuddles with our toddler. PLUS she caught a mouse that we'd been trying to get rid of for months. We literally spent $200 on traps and she caught it in her first week. I strongly encourage people to adopt a senior cat. It was wonderful not to have to teach her "house manners": she came to us already knowing not to scratch the couch or jump on the table. And she is still quite frisky and playful, while also having many mellow, loving moments. She has just melted into our family, and we couldn't be happier with her.
