Description:
The adoption fee is waived for Gilbert and ALL Desperate Housecats! Gilbert was adopted from AAC when he was a kitten, but he was brought back to the shelter with another cat after their owner passed away. Very shy, he did not do well in the shelter environment, so we moved him into a foster home. Gilbert is as gentle as he is shy. His foster family showers him with affection, and their patience is being rewarded: He is opening up and becoming more comfortable, and would probably be fine with kids if they knew to go slowly with him. He enjoys chin scratches and being petted, and will snuggle next to you to keep the affection going. Gilbert loves treats and comes running when he hears the bag. He was not very tolerant of the other cat in his previous foster home, though, so should probably be the only cat in the house at this point. Gilbert needs to be adopted into a quiet household with humans who will give him the time he needs to feel at home. The lucky adopter will be rewarded with a gentle, super sweet companion. I am a DHC, and I have my own webpage!
