Meet Gainsford! This handsome chap was brought to us by RSPCA Officers after concerns arose for his welfare.

Since the day this lad arrived with us, he has always been outgoing, curious and friendly.  He came to us suffering with both a tummy upset and flu symptoms, he really was feeling under the weather.  We immediately got him on medication for both issues to try and help him to feel better.  It has taken a good few months to get him fit and well again but he's very nearly there!  

Gainsford is a very chatty chap and he will talk and chirp to anyone and everyone willing to listen! He is an active little guy and enjoys human company so much! He will have a gentle groom and a play when hes in the mood but his favorite thing to do is sing us all a song!

Gainsford is very sweet but at times he can be easily overstimulated which can result in him nipping or swiping out, he never means any harm by this he just gets so so excited sometimes! This lovely boy is a bit of a worrier and finds changes in circumstances a bit tough to deal with. His new family will need to be willing to work with him, give him extra support when needed.

Gainsford is looking for a loving, cat experienced home where any children are older teens.  Although his tummy is much better than previously, he is still not quite 100% but our vet thinks this may be due to stress. We really need to see how he gets on in a new home, he currently is on a special diet and medication to help with this.  He may also be a flu carrier and show symptoms and need vet treatment from time to time (but we hope not). We would offer an adopter support with both these conditions and initially would be looking to place him on a foster/trial basis.

This lad has had a really rough time and he's such a sweetie! Could you give him the opportunity to live a full and happy and loved life, he really does deserve it!

Why I'm special

When I was rescued, I was so poorly and unhappy but the lovely RSPCA people helped me to get back on my four paws and now I'm well, happy and ready to start my next life adventure.  The staff here think I'm hilarious, I love to play hide and seek with them and I love to chat! I talk to everyone who visits the cattery trying to get their attention and catch their eye but so far no one has chosen me - no idea why! I'm blooming gorgeous, even if I do say so myself.

I love spending time with my favourite humans having fun, exploring and having a good fuss, I tell them all sorts of tales and although I really do quite like this hotel, they've told me what life will be like when I get a home of my very own and I honestly can't wait.  I've been waiting for months now and although my carers keep telling me not to worry, my perfect people will find me, I can't help but be a little sad when I get overlooked time after time.

Thank you for listening and if you meet my perfect people, please will you tell them where I am.

lots of love and little nosebutts from Gainsford. x

Help feed animals in our care

It costs on average £8.52 to feed a single animal in our care for just one week!

We rehome thousands of animals every year. Whilst some are lucky enough to find a new home in just a few weeks, many more stay with us for months until we're able to find them their perfect family.

Will you help us cover the costs of feeding dogs, cats, horses, rabbits and more with a donation today?

*The funds collected will be used wherever the need is greatest.
