Adopting Cats, Dogs and other Small Pets
The Dogs, cats and other pets advertised for adoption here and elsewhere on this site may have been advertised by private individuals or Pet Rescue or Pet Welfare organisations. In each case, the current owners-keepers will have their own procedure for adoption. Please remember that in the majority of cases, adoption enquiries are not handled by telephone, and may require a certain amount of form filling and a house visit. If you are interested in adopting a dog, cat or other small pet, you will generally need to make an appointment to view the animal.
Adoptable Cats, Gina, Greenwich
Information about Gina
Gina arrived at CatCuddles as an extremely shy cat, showing some of the behaviour of a feral cat, often hiding or running from people and being afraid of being touched. She is currently being looked after by experienced foster carers where she is gradually being rehabilitated – she has come a long way already. She still won’t stay still and allow herself to be stroked, but will feed from a hand, which is a huge improvement, and is happy to play with string and spend time with people – on her own terms. She also appears to interact well with other cats and enjoy their company.
It is still going to take time and only in the long-term, in a forever home, will we see a full transformation.
Gina is going to need a very special adult-only home with experienced adopters who are understanding, open minded, and out to change a life. A rural home may be ideal for her with eventual access to a safe outdoor space for her to explore. She may never be a cuddly ‘lap cat’, but like with most cats that come to know the kindness of humans late in life, once the trust and the bond are forged, you will be having a loyal friend for life.
