Senior Pets Appreciation Collection (30 Love Bugs)

We absolutely adore senior pets, for so many reasons. 

1. They're the ultimate love bugs. They can express their love and gratitude so deeply, it makes our eyes water just thinking about it. 

2. They are a part of us, our senior pets have been there for us time and time again. When all else around you might seem hectic and hopeless, you can always count on them to be there. 

3. Everything. There's something so special about our senior pets, all their quirks, and unique markings. We can spot our pets out of a lineup of all the pets in the world, that's how much we know them and their hearts. 

Share a picture with us of your senior love bug in the comments below. And if you're looking for more senior pets to gush over, look no further!

Meet The Newly Adopted Faces Of The Week (26 Images + 4 Vids)

Welcome, animal lovers! And welcome to our original weekly segment -- the newly adopted faces of the week! Our hearts are simply bursting at all this love! So many adopted faces this week, we're just melting at the sight of it all. 

Once a week, we search through the web to bring you all the recently adopted faces we manage to come across. We would like to take this moment to thank all those who have recently adopted a pet, to thank all those who adopted a pet in the past, and to thank those who will adopt a pet in the future. You guys rock. And, of course, a mega-heartfelt shoutout to those who adopt a senior pet or a pet that requires a bit more tender love and care. You are our forever heroes.  

If you're thinking about getting a pet, please consider adoption. So many animals out there are in need of loving homes such as yours. 

If you recently adopted a pet share an image with us in the comments below or send us a DM on Facebook to be featured on next week's list! You can also share your adoption on I Can Has Cheezburger's new Facebook community group, 'ICanHas Storytime,' a place where everyone can share their newly adopted pet with the entire community!

Senior Cat Appreciation Gallery (18 Images)

Senior cats have a warm spot in our hearts. I, personally, have a senior cat of my own of 15 years and I cherish every moment with my handsome old man! 

Our senior pets are a large part of our hearts. Whether you just adopted a senior animal, or have had them since they were young, we have such a strong connection to our older and calmer furbabies. For some of us, our cats have been there with us from a young delicate age and have watched us grow, watched us cry, watched us fall in love, pretty much anything you can think of -- your pet was there for it. 

We love our senior babies and do all we can to let them do how much we love them because truth be told, we don't know how much longer we have with them so it's best to just hug/pet/kiss/cuddle them any chance we get. Here are some senior cats who are still going strong and looking great! 

If you have a senior pet of your own, share an image in the comments below!

14-Year-Old Cat Finds Purrfect Companion To Share Golden Years With

A match made in heaven! Earlier this year, a friendly 14-year-old gray cat, originally named LL Cool J, was brought into the Anne Arundel County Animal Care and Control in Maryland. The shelter arranged a foster home for this gentle cat so he could live comfortably until the right person came along. 

Little did anyone know, the person who would come along would be the absolute purrfect match and that they would both need each other.

Adopted Girl Helps Senior Dogs Find Forever Home, Just Like She Did

What a beautiful heart 14-year-old Meena Kumar has. 

At 9-months-old, Kumar was found abandoned in a basket, on a college campus, in Pune, India. Kumar spent a year in the orphanage before being adopted into her forever home by a couple in Mumbai. The family currently resides in San Jose, California. 

While she was living in Mumbai, Kumar would care for a litter of puppies. And now, living in California, Kumar spends almost every weekend at the Humane Society or Muttville Senior Dog Rescue.

Muttville rescues 1000 dogs per year and is a cage-free rescue. A cage-free rescue whose mission is to give these senior dogs a second chance at life. 

Kumar tells CNN, "More people should adopt senior dogs. They give you the same unconditional love as any other dog." As someone who understands what it's like to be left behind, Kumar wants to help these dogs find their forever home, just like she did. 

However, to volunteer at the Muttville Senior Dog Rescue, you have to be at least 17-years-old, Kumar was 12. So, Kumar decided to come up with an idea that can help the dogs without being a volunteer. She advertised on Nextdoor, a popular neighbor community site, offering pet sitting, and thus, Pet Fairy Services was born.

And if you're looking to adopt, you should consider adopting a senior. Don't overlook them because of their age -- they have so much character!
