I’ve talked about how much I adore my cat, Mony on the blog before. Almost 10 years ago I got her for free from another family who couldn’t keep her, and we’ve been absolutely inseparable ever since. (Seriously. Inseparable. Ask anyone.)
Although it would have been fun to adopt a kitten, I’m glad I made the choice to adopt an older pet and give her another chance at a life full of love (and silly dancing).
Nowadays, both myself and my newly-minted cat lady mom are passionate about doing just that — adopting adult cats and giving them great lives. So this month we’re working with Hill’s® Science Diet® to spread the word about Adopt A Senior Pet Month.
This post is sponsored by Hill’s® Science Diet® and the BlogPaws® Pet Influencer Network™. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about the Adopt A Senior Pet Month and ‘Mission Adoptable’ Campaign, but Eat Move Make only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers.

As you probably know, senior pets have a harder time being adopted because most people are looking for the experience of raising a puppy or kitten. But senior pets have just as much love to give, and I’ve never once regretted adopting an older pet. My Mony-bear is my pride and joy.
Hill’s, in collaboration with the SPCA of Texas in Dallas, has created a new web series called Mission Adoptable. In each episode of Mission Adoptable, we follow the journey of an older shelter pet who is facing a difficult time getting adopted because of changes in appearance or behavior due to the aging process. I’m happy to say that each pet gets their fairytale ending as well as proper care and nutrition along the way thanks to Hill’s.
To watch Mission Adoptable episodes, click here. And make sure to check out the episode about cutie Miss Priss. It made me cry!
Mission Adoptable shows that with some extra playtime and attention as well as a nutritious diet, even challenging pets like Miss Priss can make amazing transformations and become more ready for adoption. All the pets on the show are fed Hill’s Science Diet Youthful Vitality, which is specially formulated for the needs of an older pet.
I’ve occasionally been giving Youthful Vitality to Mony lately and she thinks it’s a treat! When we went to the vet this month, she got a compliment on her fluffy, well-groomed coat too. 🙂
If you have a senior pet like I do or are thinking about adopting an older pet, be sure to visit the Hill’s website to learn more about how their Youthful Vitality line provides complete nutrition that supports good energy and a healthy coat for pets over 7. You can also follow Hill’s on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!
Happy Adopt a Senior Pet Month from me and Mony!
