FOX 32 News has teamed up with no-kill shelter PAWS Chicago to bring you an adoptable pet each week. This week, we're featuring senior cats.
Lucy, Shelby and Margo are three senior cats who are eagerly awaiting a new home to spend their golden years.
While many people are quick to adopt kittens, they often overlook any over the age of 5.
But PAWS Chicago says you shouldn't, because senior cats can make great pets for a number of reasons.
They're calmer and less energetic than younger pets. Many also do well with young children.
You can meet Lucy, Shelby, Margo and other senior pets at the PAWS Chicago Adoption & Humane Center in the Lincoln Park neighborhood.
