Meet Ginger. This gorgeous long-haired aptly named cutie was adopted as a little kitten from an Indiana shelter but her owner had to surrender her several months later after finding out that her young daughter’s chronic illness was due to an allergy to cats. Ginger lived with two older cats and would probably acclimate well to a home with other feline-friendly cats. But, because she doesn’t often ‘buddy up’ to other cats, we think Ginger would do equally well as an only cat. Her previous owner told us that Ginger is very good with children, accepting of visitors but likes to smell their hand first, doesn’t like being petted on her belly or having her nails trimmed but is accustomed to being brushed, can be playful but is on the lazy side, loves balls that rattle, and has a ‘silent’ meow. Ginger made herself at home almost immediately after becoming our guest and you’ll usually find her on a cozy bed sunning herself in the bay window of our Chiles Cat Room. She readily accepts attention but doesn’t make much of an effort to ‘put herself out there.’ To be a young cat, she is very laid-back and would be a great choice for someone who wants a younger cat but not an overly active one. Ginger sure would love to be part of a family again. If you would like to give her a loving and committed forever home, just stop by the shelter soon to fill out an application or, if you prefer, you can submit one online through our website (www.animalcaresociety.org). She is spayed, vaccinated, FIV/FeLeuk negative, and microchipped. Adoption fee of $45 includes the microchip registration fee.
