06/12/17 – “Ginger” – Sweet Cat Available at Hart County Humane Society
June is “Adopt a Cat Month” because this is the time of year when shelters and rescues are overwhelmed with cats, kittens and momma cats nursing kittens.
This week, however, we’re telling you about an elderly cat who was near death when rescued.
Ginger is about 14 year old. She is a “torbie,” that is, she her coloring is a combination of tortie and tabby.
A kind Samaritan found the emaciated cat and realized she couldn’t eat, our veterinarian diagnosed painful infected gum disease and decayed teeth. Poor Ginger had to have almost every tooth removed.
She has tested negative for feline leukemia/FIV. She has also been spayed, micro chipped, vaccinated and treated for parasites.
Some may question with all the highly adoptable kittens available why would we choose to rescue Ginger?
Well we invite you to come meet Ginger and you will quckly understand our rescue mission.
Even while in pain, Ginger would purr and rub up to have her boney body petted. We believe Ginger deserves to have a family who loves her and will give her a good home where she can live out her “senior” years. Please consider giving Ginger a forever home. Or maybe you know of someone who would enjoy having a sweet feline companion.
Many senior citizens enjoy the company of an older pet because they are typically more calm, already housetrained, and appreciate the attention they receive. So if you aren’t able to adopt Ginger, please tell your family and friends about her.
