A Man's Cat
7 yrs. neutered male
Scotland (can be transported anywhere in UK)
Ginger is timid around new people and will require an experienced person with patience to warm up to him – the way to his heart is easy, a good head scratch and Dreamies! He is a quiet boy that likes to be in the company of humans, but not so keen on being picked up and carried around. He would prefer to sit next to you while he radiates his healing purrs.
He has a favourite blankie he likes to sleep on when he takes himself off for some “me-time” so a nice soft bed and a fluffy blanket is a must in his new home.
Ginger was rescued following a car accident, where a kind bystander took him to the vets for surgery on his leg. He is now nursed back and ready to join his furever family, but with spending many years on the harsh streets, he has been infected with FIV positive, displaying no symptoms (a vet’s report with his full biochemistry can be shared upon request). His pelvis was affected by the accident, sometimes his bowls get blocked up and requires a malt paste like laxapet to help and a high fibre diet is a must going forward.
The ideal home would be a calm household, where he is able to blossom at his own pace. No sudden movements as this will unsettle him causing him to panic.
Dogs: We have not seen him interact with any, however the park where he resided in for many years is a popular dog walking park. A cat-friendly dog is a must and supervised introductions would be required.
Ginger 6 years old, neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, positive for FIV, negative for FELV, and fully litter box trained. Fully indoors, can only join a home with other FIV+ cats, ideally, he would need to be in a single cat household.
