Charming Gertrude is as loving and affectionate as a cat gets. She wants to be petted and nose kissed,
and rub against you back and forth purring softly. She often falls asleep while being petted.
Gertrude is curious and outgoing and loves to 'talk' and communicate with people. She was found wondering
the streets of brooklyn hungry and exhausted, after probably being abandoned by, or lost to her previous owners.
But Gertrude has not lost her affection and need for human companionship, and is ready to meet her new owner-for-life.
Gertrude is young, under one year old. She is a slight and pretty brown Tabby, with a hint of Abyssinian in her features.
An array of warm browns, black, silver and white adorn her delicate face and body, from the white stripe on her nose,
to the white tip of her tail. Gertrude loves to meet new people, and would be the social center of the household.
She can be a little sensitive and might give a little warning-nip if grabbed roughly or touched in a sensitive area,
and although she has done this only seldom and out of fear, a home with young children may not be ideal.
With time, and a sense of security in a new home, we are convinced this nervous response will disappear,
as Gertrude is otherwise very gentle and responds well to correction. Gertrude could do well as an only cat,
where she can have all the attention and pampering she craves, or maybe live with one other cat, but introduction
would have to be done slowly and gradually, and she will need lots of individual attention from her new owner.
Can you make this dainty princess feel special again?
