Facts about Gilbert (foster care)

  • Breed: Domestic Mediumhair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: A33047638
  • Hair: Medium
Gilbert is a male cat, estimated to be between 1-2 years old. He was surrendered by his owners due to financial difficulties, but that doesn't bring him down! He has been a joy while visiting at his foster home, but now it's time for him to find his forever home. Gilbert is the "complete package"! Not only does he have stunningly good looks - including his handsome ear tufts, and soft fluffy tail - he is a very loving and social cat. He has soft, medium-long fur, and loves to be cuddled. He enjoys being groomed, and even rolls on his back for you to brush his belly. If it were up to him, he'd rub against your leg and curl up in your lap all day! He is already neutered, and up-to-date on his shots. He is a very healthy kitty cat. He also uses the litter pan, as any gentleman would. Please send an email to:
