Adopting a "less adoptable" or overlooked animal can mean adopting a shy cat. A shy cat might take a little longer to adjust to a new home. She might not be the first to jump on your lap or be the first to greet new people in the house. A shy cat might need a little more space and a little more patience before she adjusts to people or her new home, but she will have her own special way of showing her love. Frequently, given a loving home shy cats' will blossom into a sweet, playful and loving companion.
An older cat can also be considered "less adoptable." Kittens and cats under 3 years of age are the easiest to adopt. Cats over 6-years of age are frequently overlooked because of their age. Even though adult cats still have many years of happy, healthy life ahead of them, they are overlooked. Adopting an older cat can be considered adopting a "less adoptable" cat.
