Meet Ginger (bonded To Sugar)
Ginger, and his brother Sugar, came into the BC SPCA after their previous owner sadly passed away leaving these two handsome gingers looking for their second chance at a loving fur-ever home. These brothers are extremely close to each other and can often be found curled up together. They will need to find a home where they can stay together as they are quite bonded.
Ginger is a friendly and affectionate guy who loves attention and cuddles. He loves pets and scratches from his people or curling up with his brother. Such a sweet guy has so much love to share. Ginger also has a very playful side and loves playing with his little mouse and other toys or chasing the laser pointer around trying to catch that elusive red dot. Play time is a great way to help Ginger keep active and hopefully lose some weight as he is a plump fellow. A guardian will need to be strict with Ginger and Sugars diet to help them lose those extra pounds and keep fit and healthy. Ginger has already managed to trim some weight off and is currently on a metabolic diet.
Ginger and Sugar are used to living with other cats in their previous home so may be able to get used to new feline friends with proper, slow introductions. We’re not sure if they have ever been around dogs. The home they previously lived in was a quiet, senior home so a very busy, loud home with young kids might be a bit too much for them as they can startle easily. They might be able to get used to an older child who is calm and cat savvy with some time to adjust. Overall they’ll make wonderful, loving additions to a home.
While in SPCA care Ginger has had a dental surgery done which he has recovered from. Staff will be happy to discuss Ginger’s medical history with potential adopters.
A behaviour counselling session with our Adoption Staff is necessary before adopting any animal.
Please note due to the current COVID-19 pandemic our adoption process has changed. Please visit our website https://spca.bc.ca/adoption/how-to-adopt/ for more information. All adoptions are by appointment only once we have received an application.
***Due to the high number of applications we receive for our animals, we will only be contacting potential adopters to further review their application. We are not able to call all applicants.***
