Animal name: Tobi

Weight: Unknown, muscular

Breed: Domestic Short Hair [DSH]

Physical Description: Black, small head.

Personality Description: . Loving. Likes people. Very playful. Likes petting. Needs another cat companion to play with. Got him alone, should have been paired. Needs a home with another cat to keep him happy. Please help. Thank you. 

Spayed/Neutered: Neutered

Vaccinations: All up to date and has vet paperwork.

Animal History: Adopted from a foster.

Animal Bio: Gilbert is a 12-year-old, sweet, quiet, slow-moving kitty with sad eyes. He is up-to-date on vaccinations, and has recently had a complete veterinary workup, during which he was diagnosed with early stage kidney failure. He is on a k/d diet (dry & wet), but requires no other special care. This old gentleman is not great at grooming himself, so it is best if his long hair is brushed often. He used to be an indoor/outdoor cat and roam around the neighborhood, so he would enjoy access to a safe, enclosed garden space.

Gilbert and Polly came to us after their elderly mom passed away and nobody in the family would take them, and they were planning to euthanize them. Instead, we took them in and are currently fostering them. However, we already have two cats and do not have the capacity to care for all four cats long term, so are looking into possible options. They are both good litter box users, and have no behavioral issues. They both are fine with being picked up and held, and they are both affectionate. Both Gilbert and Polly lived with a small dog the past three years, but we are not sure how well they got along. Although Gilbert and Polly have lived together all of their lives, they are not super bonded, so it is not imperative that they stay together, but they are the only family they have left.

brown tabby cat

Animal Bio: Polly is a 15-year-old, talkative, loving tabby cat who would like nothing more than to sit on your lap and get petted. She enjoys playing with string and likes to get brushed. She is up-to-date on vaccinations, and has recently had a complete veterinary workup with a clean bill of health. She is missing many of her teeth, but it doesn’t seem to interfere with her ability to eat, though she does prefer pouch food. She also used to be an indoor/outdoor cat, and would appreciate a home with a sliding glass door or accessible window for her to safely look out and admire the view.
