Hello! My name is Gengar, and I'm named after the Pokemon character! I had a rough start to life, but now I am really moving my way up in the world! I originally came from a hoarder house that was about to be demolished. I used to live in the yard of that house, with my siblings, and my foster Mommy trapped us the night before they tore the house down! Mommy had the owner's permission, he wanted us to have a better life, and he knew this is the way to do that!
I am a sweet natured orange tabby. My coat was in very rough shape when I was trapped, but I got medicine and good food and now my coat is growing back in and proving to be very pretty! I can be very shy at first, and would need a home that would give me time to adjust. It just takes me some time to know that it's safe for me around new people. I am food motivated, and because my foster Mom gave me time to adjust to being with her, now when she comes in the room I get all excited and climb my cat tree and waiting for treats and pets from her! I love wet food and coming running for that too. I enjoy playing with toys, especially toys on a string! I could play with foster Mommy and that string toy forever. I don't like being picked up but I will purr and flip on my back when you give me pets! Lots of kitties don't like being picked up, but that doesn't mean we aren't affectionate! I'm a really special boy, and I stand up reallllllly tall to reach the dangly cat toy!
I get along great with other kitties, I'm fostered around a good number of kitties, all with different personalities and I do great with them. I like the run around and play with the younger one who likes to play as much as I do! I haven't been around my foster Mommy's big dog, too much. She walks by me and I don't panic, but I would do best in a home with older respectful doggies or with an owner who knows to very slowly introduce dogs and cats.
I'm fixed, up to date on my shots, tested negative for FIV/FeLV, on flea preventative and dewormed! My adoption fee is only $50!
If you would like to know more about me, please email my foster Mom at firstname.lastname@example.org. Just email her and she can make sure I'm there to meet you!
