Unknown if i can share my house with another cat
Age: 5 years approxSex: MaleBreed: Domestic Short Haired (DSH)Adoption fee: £120.00
Gary came to the centre as a semi feral cat after his welfare had become compromised and he could no longer stay where he was. Gary was extremely nervous of everyone when he first arrived at the centre as to be expected with him being semi feral. We have worked long and hard with Gary and we now feel he is at the point where we can re home him to the right home. Gary is still quite fearful of people he does not know so any new adopter must be willing to give him the time, space and understanding he needs to settle into a home environment. He will need a spare room that can be dedicated to him and he can make his own and feel confident in before being introduced to the rest of the house.
Adopters will need to understand that it may take up to six months for Gary to settle in and no pressure to be put on him during this period, less is best when it comes to cats like Gary. Staff will be happy to discuss how we won him around, this will help with his transformation into his new home. Gary likes to hide in boxes as he feels safe in enclosed spaces, even now he prefers to be stroked while he is in his scratch post ( this will come with him ). Adopters will need to ensure that all routes of escape are kept safe so he can not get out.
Once Gary builds a bond with you and trusts you he really is the sweetest boy, he loves his head rubs and loves to play with the wand toys. He enjoys the company of you being around and likes to sit and watch what you are doing even if we are not interacting with him. Gary just needs someone who will take a chance on him, give him the time, space and TLC he needs. He deserves his happy ending. We are looking for adopters who have previously owned nervous cats so have the experience to help build his confidence and overcome his insecurities.
He will need an adult only home.
DUE TO THE HIGH VOLUME OF APPLICATIONS WE ARE RECEIVING, IF YOU HAVE NOT HEARD BACK FROM FROM US WITHIN 2 WEEKS IT MEANS UNFORTUNATELY YOU HAVE NOT BEEN SUCCESSFUL THIS TIME FOR THIS CAT.
