GilesReservedSwindon

Giles is a very handsome, sociable, large ginger boy about 4 years old who has come in to our care recently. He has been living rough for about a year so will need an experienced cat owner. Based on what we know of Giles so far, we believe his forever home should be with a mature person/couple or a family with no young children.

When Giles arrived he was friendly but, having lived on the streets for a while, his eating habits were completely unbalanced. As soon as he saw food he would eat it, whether he was hungry or not, and this led to digestive issues. Now that he has regular meals the digestive problem has gone away.

He is quite vocal, so that you know he is around. Giles is happy to be picked up, he purrs constantly and absolutely loves attention. He’s currently living in a pen and rubs round the fosterer’s legs and stands on his hind legs for attention, always purring and looking at him. We don’t know yet whether he is a lap cat. Giles did bite the fosterer just after he came into our care (purring while doing so!); we believe this was because he was overexcited, not because he’s vicious at all. He has not bitten the fosterer since he has settled in to his temporary home. Only purred!

In his profile, below, it say that he can not live with dogs. However, Giles has seen the fosterer’s dogs in the garden and completely ignored them so he may be alright with a quiet dog, not one that will upset or chase him so that he strays again. He isn't suitable to home with another cat.

He has the makings of a lovely cat. Lots of fuss and TLC will help him to quickly settle in. We have neutered Giles so any tendency to re-stray will be significantly less. A loving home and regular food will remind him that he’s better off not straying! We have also vaccinated, wormed and de-flea’d Giles.
