A woman called Pet Patrol wanting to rehome her male cat. He was a little over three years old, unneutered and was going after her unspayed female. It was causing havoc in the household with the other pets as it was constant. It is always advisable to have your cats spayed or neutered to not only control the over population of cats, but also to help your pet be calmer. Gus was taken to the vet for an exam, received his vaccinations and the woman took him home for a couple more weeks until the vaccinations took effect. When he was brought into Pet Patrol care – Oh boy – it was not good. Gus was glassy eyed, thin, dehydrated, had not been eating for days. He was immediately taken to the vet where he was hooked up on IV fluids for four days to help him recover. During the two week period at his previous home he had been kept in the basement and he may have gotten into something or was so stressed that he became ill. He is in good shape now and ready for his new family.
Gus is a lovable, playful and affectionate cat. We don’t know what experiences he had with women in his past, but he takes a few days to warm up to women and then he is quite affectionate. At Pet Patrol we observe the cat’s personality, their interaction with people and other cats, and learn from what we see. Gus is easy to pick up and cuddle, likes to be on your shoulder and is up for a nice belly rub too. Gus is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.
