Georgio's Story: Georgio was an outdoor cat who was being fed and watched out for by several neighbours for quite awhile. We do not know if he was born outside or had been lost or abandoned. He was chatty with his feeders, but also timid when they tried to catch him. His feeders became concerned because he was looking in rough shape and asked for help to get him into care for medical attention. Once in Foster care he had several mats on his back shaved and received antibiotics for some wounds. He was vaccinated, dewormed and neutered. Right from the start he allowed petting but was timid and preferred to stay in his safe spot.


Foster Notes: Georgio has come a long way in becoming comfortable and gaining confidence in his foster home. A quiet home without too much activity would be best as he gets nervous when there is noise. He has learned to enjoy attention (petting) but whomever is petting him needs to recognize when he's had enough. He is braver now and every day he is engaging more and more with his foster mom. He especially likes getting creamy treats and will lick them right off your fingers. He greets his people at his meal times with chirps and quiet meows. He has met other cats and did best with a young friendly non-dominant cat. He would chirp and sniff that cat and watch his antics. The older cats who were "bossy" intimidated him and he shyed away. We do not recommend dogs nor young children as he still frightens easily. He uses his litter box well. He always enjoys a good meal.


Cat Whisperer Needed: Georgio is a cat who was on his own outdoors for a long time and had limited human interaction. But, now that he is inside he has shown over time in his foster home that he can establish a connection with humans and be happy indoors. He is now now content with inside life, and has grown accustomed to all the perks that come with a family—warmth, food, company, affection and love. However, it will take awhile to for him to develop the same trust as with his foster parents , and he may hide until he is adjusted and trusts his new people. This may take a few weeks, or months. He needs a special family who will take the time to show patience and build his confidence and trust, just like his foster family did. His foster parents with Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue can offer you tips and tricks that helped in his foster home. Georgio is a work in progress, but the reward of saving a cat from the harshness & dangers of outdoor life is so worth the effort and time it may take.


ADOPTION FEE: The Cat Whisperer Needed adoption fee is $165.00 (which includes a health check, first vaccination in a series and any that become due while in care, first anti-parasite treatments needed in care, spay or neuter and microchip at our Veterinary partner). There is a 10% discount when you adopt 2 cats/kittens. The adopter will be responsible for any vaccine or boosters, anti-parasite treatments that are needed after adoption. Kittens usually need 3 vaccines, one month apart starting at age 7 weeks. Juveniles and Adult cats usually require 2 vaccines one month apart in the first year, then annual vaccines. Deworming is recommended at the time of each vaccine appointment. If you are intending to adopt, please be aware that your Veterinary clinic may be experiencing backlogs in scheduling appointments, so do not delay calling your clinic to book your new cat's needed booster appointment(s). Please note that cats are not tested for FIV/FeLV nor can FIP be predicted. We will share any medical information gathered during our health checks and observations revealed during their time in care. But it is important to know that some illnesses can have an incubation period of 10 days, which means that a cat can leave in good health but get sick a few days post adoption. In addition, the stress of a new environment can affect a cats’ immune system.
