Approx Age: 5-6 years
Gatsby is a very handsome, medium-furred adult cat, 5-6 years old, fluffy white with orange, including orange spots between the toes on his front paws. He is neutered, vaccinated, and tested (negative) for FIV and FeLV.
About a year ago, Gatsby and his sister Daisy were left outside in care of neighbors when their owner moved out of state. In July 2018 the owner, who had kept in contact with neighbors regarding the cats' welfare, reached out to Dusty Paws Rescue for help. Now in Dusty Paws foster homes, the cats are learning to adjust to being inside again and are seeking new, permanent homes.
Gatsby is still a little cautious at being in a new place after a year outside, but he is an affectionate boy and is interacting a little more each day, even chatting a bit. From the first night in his current foster home, he has jumped up on the bed to be with his foster mom and will lie beside her when she is sitting on the couch. He likes to knead and loves to be petted, pulling at your hand with his paw if you stop too soon.
In his current environment Gatsby is alone a lot during the day as his foster mom works full time. He has played with toys left for him on the floor and is good about using the litter box. When "mom" comes home and opens the front door, he likes to sit looking out at the world through the screen.
