My name is Mr. G and I hope you can take the time to read my story.
I came to the North East Animal Sanctuary looking for my forever home once again at my young age of 5 years. I have had some ongoing trouble with my eyes and when I came to my first foster carer the decision was being made to see whether or not I would have to have my eyes operated on. But for the time being I was happy to keep my eyes closed and spoil every human I came in contact with my all the love they could handle.
A week later it was decided that I would have my operation and be all ready to find my furrever home on adoption day.
Easy right…not so much.
I went on trial and it didn’t go so well. I got very scared. I was seeing things I had never seen before and on top of that I was in a new home with another cat that didn’t find me as amazing as I knew I was.
All I wanted to do was sleep and hide. I was so scared. I stopped eating and drinking and found myself in a slump I couldn’t get out of.
My trial human had no choice but to return me back to the sanctuary. My foster mumma came straight down to pick me up and I saw the sadness in her eyes when she saw that I wasn’t the same confident man that had left her. But after a trip to the vet I felt a little bit of myself returning. I got back to my foster home and decided I was going to give this another go.
I went on trial again and as much as I tried I fell back into my slump. I couldn’t eat or drink and I couldn’t work out why. There was another cat there as well which made me feel very uneasy and as the days wore on I knew I would be heading back to the sanctuary again.
I have tried I really have I promise.
I now think that I need to be in a home with no other animals. Even if they like me I have got to a point where I just don’t feel comfortable.
My world has been spinning lately and I need a very special person or person to make my dreaming of having a forever home complete.
I need someone who can give me time. Give me time to trust and grow. I don’t need the whole house to run in as this make me very overwhelmed and I find hiding is the best option.
I need a space where I can be me first. A little spot all of my own where I can feel safe and get to know my new human. Then gradually I can get into exploring the rest of the house.
I’m a tad fussy also when it comes to food. I like my dry biscuits. I love the Kmart brand and also the whiskers dry food. Also being an outdoor cat previously I can be fussy about my littler. My foster mumma went with the advice from the lovely vet lady and offered me two litter trays. Yes, two. I had a choice. One was just newspaper and the other was a newspaper based litter. I don’t like the crystals at all. The little balls feel very strange under my feet and they make a terrible noise.
Aside for all my little problems I am having at the moment I am a big love bug. I love to rub noses and hang out on the couch watching tv. I love to smother humans with as much love as I can. I just need your help. To find me. To find the Mr. G gentleman that I have somehow lost. I know it will be hard but I know we can do it together.
Please Please give me a chance to fill your heart with the love I know I have.
