10. Yes!

I've seen some cage rage! These poor kitties get subjected to who-knows-what and then get blamed for bad behavior.

The Humane Society of Loudoun County and Loudoun Community Cat Coalition both do a good job working to get the special needs/seniors adopted. Their efforts include tracking members/volunteers who are more open to fostering these types of cats.

We adopted an incredibly aggressive Russian Blue from a semi-feral colony and it took a full two years to socialize him. The good thing is our orange tabby is the alpha and she lets the Russian know about himself. But, it definitely takes a certain type of adopter who has the time/patience/willingness to work with whatever issues the kitty has.

I think a special needs adoption event is a great idea--with promotion on social media, email, and website prior. Introduce the kitties and invite folks to a meet and greet. My guess is you'll have some success. And, you can also keep tabs as to who may be interested in a special needs/senior in the future. Shannon needs to jump on board!!
