Say hello to Gambit!
Gambit is looking for a ‘guardian’ rather than an owner.
He needs a home where he has the freedom to roam, maintain some distance from people if he chooses to and is supported with food, water, shelter, and the veterinary care he may need.
Gambit came into the centre as an injured stray via the RSPCA. He had dislocated his left hip which has now been surgically repaired. Due to this he may always be a little lame on it. We think he has lived as a stray for a long time which is why he is not familiar or comfortable being close to people.
We did try Gambit in a foster home which unfortunately did not work out how we hoped, he howled all night, tried to attack the dogs and was aggressive but did quite like their female cats.
These outdoor cats are unique and need a special sort of home which is different to a traditional family house.
Taking on one of these cats gives them a second chance in the type of home where they can live their best life.
Seeing them roaming free, dozing in the sun and exploring to their heart’s content can be really rewarding.
In some cases, the freedom to control their proximity to people can help these cats to become more friendly, especially towards people who regularly feed them.
Anybody thinking about adopting a cat like this should be open to the idea that they may end up with a cat that’s a little more friendly than expected.
