An almost 100-year-old cat is looking for a forever home for the third time.

Pippin is back at the RSPCA’s Lonsdale shelter in South Australia after outliving two of her previous owners.

RSPCA team member Jenny Sherring hopes the third time is the charm for the feline, who is 98 in human years and 20 years and six months in cat years.

“It is a bit of a strange one that she’s now back to us looking for a third home after having two owners pass away,” Sherring said.

“Hopefully that doesn’t happen to the next owner.”

Despite her maturity, Pippin is still young at heart.

She is in very good health, still has her sense of adventure and although she is missing a few teeth, she can always be drawn in with a treat.

“She’s really friendly, really chatty,” Sherring said.

“She’d love to just curl up next to you on the couch.”

With more than 350 adult cats currently in care, the RSPCA is asking the public not to forget about considering an older animal.

The agency is launching a mature cat adoption program from this Saturday.

“I think the benefits of adopting an adult cat is that you’re really getting the cat’s personality for what it is in front of you,” Sherring said.

As for Pippin, it is hoped her forever home is not too far away.

“We do hope she’s got a little while left in her so someone can enjoy those last few years with her,” Sherring said.
