Special Needs

Handsome Gandalf needs a new person to love him.  After his person was hospitalized and then later permanently moved to assisted living where Gandalf was not able to join him, Gandalf became an orphan.  He was alone for a month in his former home with a caretaker coming in daily to feed him and scoop, when I got a call from his person, an acquaintance of mine.  Gandalf was upset and had gone into hiding in the apartment, and had found the perfect spot where no one could reach him without tearing apart the kitchen cupboards.  Gandalf needed to be trapped.  After two nights of trapping with no success, using the best lures including KFC, on the third night we had something we knew would work as bait .. his favorite meat in the world ... corned beef.  (Because of the salt content, it is NOT a good food for him but it worked to nab him.) 

His life was turned upside down and it took a while to adjust.  He's still uncertain of what's happening with every new experience.  His new experiences include living in a foster home with other cats, getting used to new people (and more than one), going to adoptions, and for a temporary period of time, being in a show cage at Petco to get more comfortable with new experiences and hopefully to find the right person to take interest in him. 

He's a neutered male, Russian Blue mix and a nice boy.  He's about 4 years old.  His former person says Gandalf would sleep with him, sit next to him on the sofa and likes to play. He would probably be best in a stable home that doesn't have too many residents.  He would most likely so well as a companion to a single person, a couple or family with one older child.  We don't how he would be with dogs but his person says he seems to like other cats.
