Gino is a ginger and white stray who moved in with an elderly lady several years ago. Sadly, the lady died recently leaving Gino with no one to feed him so her daughter asked for ARC’s help. Gino is a timid boy but we are told the elderly owner could stroke him. Gino had to be trapped to get him to us. He is now with one of our most experienced foster homes for further assessment but Gino will need an owner experienced in very timid cats and a lot of patience.
Gino has been neutered, microchipped, fleaed and wormed. He will start his vaccinations once we can handle him more easily. Our vet estimates that Gino is approximately 8 years old.
Update from fosterer ‘Little Gino sat on the kitchen worktop while I made dinner, he didn’t move or run away just watched me. He ate dreamies and cod I saved him😁
He hisses if I get too close so haven’t tried to touch him yet. This morning he was in the bathroom sink and again just watched me as I worked around him to get ready for work. No hissing this morning!
He also has thumbs.’
