Ricky is a senior cat who loves getting attention. He might be 17 years old but this Siamese is still a friendly fellow. His family is accustomed to this behavior and they know that he is not shy when it comes to asking for some love. They are more than happy to oblige his requests, understandably so. However, we humans have a variety of other obligations.
Ricky has decided that this solution works best for his needs. Once he receives the strokes, his eyes narrow until he reaches peak bliss. Everyone who has ever snuggled up with a cat knows that facial experience. It almost looks like a squint but this is their way of letting us know that they are as happy and contented as can be.
Ricky is very used to this sort of pampering. The senior cat has been a member of this family for his entire life. He does not know anything else. This is a clever gambit and we bet that other families are going to use it to help their own senior cats. We are glad to see that he is being included in everything that this family does.
These stories are a friendly reminder about the importance of adopting senior cats. While they may be getting along in years, these cats still need plenty of love and affection. Unfortunately, they are often passed over for younger animals and this is a very sad reality. Let’s all do our part to help these cats by taking the time to pass this story along to all our closest friends and loved ones.
