Re: Age Limit to Adopt?
it depends on the rescue and their individual rules (and some have a crapton of rules!). i've worked with some that would adopt to 16 year olds, but only with parental signatures on the contract (so technically, it was mom/dad doing the adopting). 18 is the limit for most i've worked with. one or two required adopters be over 21. 24 seems a bit extreme to me.
i wouldn't get too discouraged yet. like the previous poster said, most rescues are run entirely by volunteers who have families, jobs, and lives. it sometimes takes a while to get all the emails responded to. how long has it been since you emailed them? if it's been- i'd say- about a week, the cat you're interested in is still listed as available, maybe try sending a polite follow-up email, saying you were worried they didn't receive your original inquiry or something along those lines.
