6 Year Old Male Black Maine Coon Mix
Special Needs; residing in Vallejo
Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is helping facilitate the placement of this cat. We take no responsibility for the cat's health and medical records. It is the responsibility of the owner and adopter to discuss this.
Gino was born in the summer 2007 and his owner has had him since he was a baby. His mom was Siamese and his dad a Maine Coon. He is about 13 pounds and very fluffy. Gino once was an outdoor/indoor cat and would always stay close to home but he loved to hunt and bring his owner presents. Now with his special needs he is indoor only. He likes to sit in the windows and enjoy the outside view. Gino is not into regular cat toys very much, but enjoys playing with hair ties and paper towel rolls. He does like his scratching post. He plays and gets along with the other cat in his home and they have been best buddies for about 5 years. He likes to lounge around, being lazy, and climb on the back of the couch or on his cat tree and really enjoys sleeping on his owner's lap and be petted. Gino is good with the resident dogs in his home and usually ignores them unless they try to play with him. He then runs away. His owner loves him very much but is not able to give him the attention nor has the financial means that his special needs may require.
Gino has Struvite Crystals of the Urinary Tract System. Gino is otherwise healthy. We are looking for a home where someone is willing to keep Gino on a diet of CD or SO foods and work with their veterinarian for long term maintenance of the condition. What is important with this condition is keeping Gino at his ideal weight, providing lots of fresh water for him to drink, keeping him on the recommended diet, and a safe, secure, low stress indoor home where Gino is loved and treasured.
If you are that special person who thinks you can give Gino what he needs, please contact Karen at 707-301-6425 or Karen Pahler [firstname.lastname@example.org]. Please note that Gino is not in a Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue foster home but residing in Vallejo with his owner who is placing him.

Rescue Group Info...
Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of purebred and other exceptional cats.
Our mission is to educate pet owners, breeders, and shelters about our breeds, and to place our cats with Forever Families who will give them the proper care and love they deserve. We carefully match cats with their Forever Families by evaluating each cat's personality, temperament, and special needs. Then we determine the best fit for both the cat and the new family. Please note that we do NOT ship cats.
Our adoption fee is $175 unless otherwise noted. This fee allows us to provide excellent vet care for the cats that really need it. The healthy kitties make it possible for the sick ones to be saved.
Our cats are neutered or spayed, vaccinated and FELV/FIV negative. We are not a shelter. All of our cats are fostered in private homes. We ask that anyone wanting to meet one of our cats first fill out our online application. These cats are treated like members of our family, and we want to ensure that you will do the same.
When you adopt from Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue, you are saving TWO lives - the cat you adopt and the cat who gets to take its place in Rescue!
READY TO ADOPT?
First, call the name of the foster mother if you are interested in an individual cat. Once you've chatted, she will ask you to fill out our easy online application. Just "Click to submit"! Next, one of our wonderful volunteers will quickly contact your veterinary and personal references. Then they will give you a call to chat and answer any questions or concerns you may have about the adoption process. Once approved we will help you set up a time to come and meet the kitty or kitties you want. If it's a good match all around you will be asked to sign a contract and pay the adoption fee and you can take the kitty home that very day.
Our adoption fee is $175. That includes the kitty, spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, tested for FIV/FELV.
We do not ship pets, however, you are welcome to put in an application and once approved make plans to come out and meet the kitty and fly it back with you.
