During the Christmas season maybe you are considering adding a new furry friend to your household. What about a nice senior cat from one of Central New York's animal shelters? They still have the best years ahead of them. 

By no means is there anything wrong with wanting to adopt a younger cat. However, people tend to forget about older pets that still need a home. These animals are still lovable, and extremely loyal. This Christmas season, it would be amazing to find homes for all homeless cats and dogs in the Central New York region.

Here are five cats that are in their senior years and looking for a home this Christmas:

Billy is currently available at the Rescueadopt.com-Upstate New York.

His name is Billy and he is a gray tabby. He just turned 14 years old. I adopted him in 2011 when he was 9 years old. At the time I had a mild cat allergy but managed it just fine. I found out I was pregnant in Nov 2014. Shortly after that I was wracked with severe eczema, asthma and allergies. I thought it would go away after my son was born but my son is now 9 months old and I am still suffering every day."
