Garfield Sturgeon   |   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? Yes
Only calm cat friendly dogs who won't chase me, with proper introductions of course.
Good with Cats? Yes
Especially cat friendly cats and proper introductions.
Good with Kids? Unknown
Maybe if they are gentle with me.

Critter Twitter:

I am one very sweet ginger cat. I may have a constant sad face but don't let it fool you. I am a giant lovebug. I can be quite the velcro cat (literally I am on you like white on rice) purring away. I still enjoy some playtime but for the most part, I enjoy sleeping on your chest or at least being around you. I am one sweetheart of a cat who can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you. #luvme #cuddleme #adoptme

About my Behaviour:

Though I am being fostered with Betty we don't need to be adopted together. I am great with other animals (dogs/cats) who are cat-friendly with slow proper introductions. I do love to play and chase the other dogs/cats in the foster home. It's so much fun! But I will also play by myself at times. I cuddled with the senior dog who was very ill every day before he passed away. I wanted him to feel love and my warmth for as long as possible.

I can be scared of men so it will take me time to be ok with a guy in the house, the bigger stature and deeper tone of voice could be the reason or I could have been abused by a man. Doing baby talk and being the one who feeds and plays with me will help me see that you are awesome and won't harm me.

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.
