21-year-old cat brothers need a new home together

Leon and Nikita are brothers who have spent their lives together.

Now both 21, they’re in need of a home to see out the rest of their days together.

Most cats don’t live longer than 15, but the siblings are in good health and just need somewhere quiet to live.

Sadly, they were signed over the the RSPCA in Northamptonshire because they were not coping with family life.

A post on the animal shelter’s Facebook page explains: ‘Poor Leon and Nikita find themselves in our care at the grand age of 21. They are bonded brothers and were signed over to be rehomed as they were not coping with family life.’

Nikita has been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, so he will need blood tests over at the charity’s vet’s to check how he is responding to medication, but the branch will continue to support their new owners with this.

The post continued: ‘Due to their age, we are keen to get these lovely boys settled into a new home asap.

‘Leon and Nikita are an affectionate pair who enjoy chin tickles and human company. They are looking for a quiet home with no children.

‘The branch will offer support post-adoption while Nikita’s condition is stabilising so we are looking for a home within Northamptonshire.’

If you can offer the cats a retirement home, you can register interest at this online form. You can find more about the adoption process of the RSPCA website.

Despite their age, the brothers are still a little off the oldest recorded cat. According to the Guinness World Records, that title goes to Creme Puff who died in 2005, at the age of 38.
