Everyone who wants a cat should be able to get one. However seniors can benefit most from a cat’s presence but look for specific breeds that might get along best with a senior citizen.

Bombay cats are generally social and love being around people while Persian cats tend to be easy going. Then again, any cat with a decent personality that doesn’t require a lot of activity would be suitable for a senior so don’t limit yourself to specific breeds. The best cat is the one that people can love.
