Description:

Ginger Needs a Tranquil Castle to Call her Own

Ginger is a very sweet and petite cat. Her light green eyes remind you of tourmaline gemstones and her markings look like she is wearing a necklace. Her tabby striped fur is regal and plush with hints of pale apricot highlights and ivory accents which complement her demure personality. Even her voice sounds dainty when she is seeking your attention. Ginger melts when you gently pet her down her backbone all the way to the tip of her tail, and enjoys being scratched behind her ears and under her chin. She even chirps at you when she wants to be petted. Once she warms up to you, Ginger can be peacefully held and purrs to her heart’s content while you softly stroke her dainty ears.

This kitten-cat displays her playful side with interactive toys like a fleece ribbon on a wand or a laser mouse. Ginger also likes to entertain herself chasing sparkled balls or other baubles she discovers hiding throughout her domain. When its time for some solitude, she naps in an overstuffed chair like a princess. Ginger is not fussy about her feasted fare, although she does prefer a juicy bowl of seafood pate. A small bowl of crunchy edibles satisfies her midnight cravings. Ginger behaves in a ladylike manner and does not scratch furnishings or jump on countertops. She prefers sleeping alone or at the foot of the bed. On pleasant summer nights she sleeps on the sill of an opened and screened window. She often jumps up on the couch to join you while you watch TV or read a book.

Ginger was liberated from living outdoors at a noisy truck stop with several other cats. When rescued, she was pregnant and had three healthy kittens. Ginger is shy at first and needs a serene home with only one or possibly two adults. No young children now or in the future. She needs someone who is calm, experienced with cats and willing to patiently dole out plenty of royal treatment. Once Ginger earns your trust, she is an incredibly sweet and loyal kitty.

Ginger is a very healthy girl although she is positive for the feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV). Cats with FIV can live long, healthy lives while living strictly indoors. She has been 100 percent healthy in our care and has no special needs. We haven't seen Ginger interact with other cats so don't know how she would do with a feline companion. She seems happy as a single cat in her foster home as long as she gets TLC and has toys to play with. Please don't let her FIV status deter you from considering this sweet girl if you and your home environment are a good match for her.
