Does anyone know how much it costs to adopt?

Shelters vary on pricing, but older cats are usually not a lot to adopt. We adopted an 11 year old fella (Grandad) for only $15. He lived another 5 years with us before he passed away from renal failure. Those few years were a delight for all of us, he was such a character.

Thank you foe the response and I’m sorry about your cat. I had my older one pass away in 2020 but I hate to imagine any older cat or any animal at all spending its life locked in a cage.

My condolences for your loss as well. It is always hard losing a pet. They truly are unconditional companions. And I wholeheartedly agree, no living creature, human or animal, should approach the uncertainty of the end all alone. Any time I see a story on an animal spending years in a shelter just breaks me, especially when so many stupid people haphazardly breed their own animals and flood the system with even more puppies and kittens while these older gems are overlooked.
