Ginger has come in to our care as sadly his owner was very poorly and unable to care for him any more.
Ginger is a quiet older boy that once he has settled and got to know you does enjoy a fuss and really loves being brushed.
He loves a quiet life, somewhere warm and cosy to snooze and to have a wander outside to get fresh air.
We are looking for a quiet home again for Ginger with somone that is prepared that he may take several weeks to settle in to a new home.
Dental & Heart Murmur
Whilst in our care Ginger has had a dental so his teeth are all now nice and clean & healthy! He also has a Heart Murmur, which has been identified by our Consultant Vet during routine examination. Heart murmurs are very common in cats – one study shows around one third of cats have a heart murmur. Although a murmur may signify a problem with the heart or its blood vessels, approximately fifty percent of healthy cats with a heart murmur don’t have any underlying disease – and of those that do, many live quite normally without ever developing any signs of disease. Heart murmurs range in severity from 1 to 6 (1 being very mild, 6 being severe). Ginger has a Grade 2 murmur and has been signed off as being free of illness and fit for re-homing.
Ginger's new Vet should be informed of his history, in case of future illness. The heart should also be monitored regularly (i.e. at annual booster vaccine) to check for any change in condition.
