My mom was 78 when she got a kitten from the Humane Society, and now that my fathers is gone that cat gives my mother something to talk to and talk about. She says she worries what will happen to the cat if she dies, I joke and remind her that her mother lived to 96, so the cat will probably go first. Try to arrange to have a friend or family member agree to take the cat if something happens, but don't worry about it or let it stop you from giving a stray a new life. I agree with Winston that most places will not adopt out a cat if it is going to be outdoors, plus, if it is strictly and indoor cat you'll have less health problems and vet bills. Good Luck.
