Garfield Sturgeon *update*   |   Male   |   Domestic Ginger Shorthair (DSH)   |  

Rescue Story:

Betty and I were abandoned at a farm, no ID, and not fixed. No one came to claim us. Being an unfixed tomcat I had to fight to stay on the property where I was being fed. The owner befriended us and asked Zoe's to take us in as we weren't feral. We are both fixed now and ready for forever homes.

Date of Birth: 2018

Energy Level: Medium

Size (adult): Large (17lbs)

Adoption Fee: $170 for me and all my glorious 17lbs of not fluff.

Good with Dogs? Very specific dog(s) only
Only a calm small cat friendly dog who won't chase me, with proper introductions of course.
Good with Cats? Very specific cat(s) only
Only a very cat friendly male cat. But I would also be happy as an only cat if you are home alot.
Good with Kids? Unknown
Maybe if they are gentle with me.

Critter Twitter:

I am one very sweet ginger cat. I am very clingy and I don't like to share laps with any other pet in the house. I enjoy playing and have a zest for life. I can't wait to meet you. #sosweet

About my Behaviour:

I would be ok a cat-friendly small dog or another very cat-friendly easy-going large male cat with slow intros. I do love to play with other cats but I can play rough which means it's best if your male cat is a big boy to. (Not fat just large) Preferably ones who aren't lap pets so I can have your lap to myself. I would be ok as an only pet as long as you are home most often. I do have separation anxiety if I am alone for hours.

I am shy when strangers come over, I'd prefer a home where you don't have many guests come over, please.

I will take weeks to settle into a new home but I am well worth the wait. A quiet sanctuary room and food bribes will really help.

How’s my Health?

I am fully vetted. I do have a sensitive stomach so hypoallergenic food or novel proteins with fewer fillers/grains would be best for me. I shouldn't be free-fed as I will get fat. I am 17lbs already and only a bit overweight. Scheduled meals and wet food especially will help me lose some weight and stay at a healthy weight to prevent health issues.
