Hi everyone,

Posted: June 16, 2020

I'm Gilbert

No, no, please don't skip me!! I know I've already got 2 strikes against me: 1) because I'm a black cat (we still have the lowest adoption rate) and 2) because I'm very nervous, or what the humans here like to call a "Spirit Cat"
After being in the Main Room here at GTHS since about early April, I'm now JUST starting to accept visits from the humans (sort of...). That being said, I do still spend most of my day in these safe little boxes. It's where I feel most comfortable.
Anyways, back to this Spirit Cat thing. It means I'm a little under-socialized with people, so my new family will have to understand that it may take me weeks or even months before I'm feeling settled and comfortable in my new home.
At least, this is what the GTHS humans thought based on my behaviour at the Animal Center. BUT! I was actually adopted out briefly, and my adopter said I was no Spirit Cat at all once I got into her home. I settled in quite quickly and then just followed her around, slept on top of her and ended up not being so shy at all! So, I guess we'll see what happens with my next family hehe What I do know is that I need to the only kitty in my next home please! (I wasn't being all that nice to the other kitty in my adoptive home, which is why I had to come back....oopsie)

I guess the rest is a bit of a question mark...I just showed up at the GTHS Front Door one day, so no one really knows my story. I'm a healthy boy though and truly am very sweet, I'm just really shy and nervous still....I hope that's okay. I'm a really nice size kitty too, at about 9-10lbs. Oh, oh, AND! I have this really cute tongue that usually shows just a little bit *mlem* adorable, eh?!

My adoption fee is $100 and includes my neuter, up-to-date vaccinations, dewormer and a microchip.

I know I'm not going to be the right kitty for everyone, but I am sooo looking forward to the day when my purrfect person or family picks me!
xoxo Gilbert
