Gideon: A Social Guy, Friend to All But Canines

Gideon, the cat, showing off his green eyes.

The latest cat for adoption in our Astoria store is Gideon, a social character if ever there was one. He sits at the door of Whiskers Rescue Ranch to view the action, and sweetly meows that he would like to come out and talk! An absolutely cuddly cat, he’s very responsive to staff or strangers, and clearly loves people. He is not from the aloof cat circle, and is quite warm and curious to get to know new visitors, get a scratch, and settle in someone’s arms.

When he came to Whiskers, he had an eye infection that we took care of with veterinary care, and he’s just fine now. He’s about one-year-old and neutered, just about the most affectionate cat we’ve ever met in this species. He is definitely not a loner, but does stretch out to take a good nap in the lazy sunny afternoons.

However, he is not a fan of the canine sect. In fact, when a dog enters the store, he’ll jump on the highest ramp in the ranch, with hairs on end, hissing at the intruder to let him know just what kind of threat he can be. So, no dogs in a home for Gideon!

If interested in adopting him, please call us at 718-626-8590 or come in and meet him. Tell friends! He is a really happy cat, and as much as we all love having him around, we hope to find him the happy home he deserves.
