About me

Hi everyone, my name is Gilbert and I’m on the hunt for my forever home.

I’m a cool character and love nothing more than chilling out and relaxing, but I’m not just a couch potato! Just wiggle a bit of string or a feather for me and I’ll show you how playful I can be. I do enjoy a bit of fuss and attention, and I’m missing a warm lap to curl up on in the evenings.

I’d be happy to live with older children who are able to understand that I need quiet time for important cat business like naps. We’d need to meet each other at the centre for an introduction before I could go home, just to make sure we’d get on well!

My ideal home would be quiet and calm, with a garden to call my very own, and some loving owners who’d enjoy the company of a big beautiful cat like me.

If there’s a space on your sofa or maybe your lap then I’d love to meet you! Love Gilbert

Help Gilbert to find a happy home with the gift of pet sponsorship!

Does your loved one have room in their heart, but not in their home, for a pet of their own? Blue Cross sponsorship is the perfect present for animal lovers.

Sponsor a pet as a gift for your loved one from as little as 70p a week, and they will receive monthly updates from real homeless pets in our care who are just waiting to meet their new families. Your chosen friend or family member will also receive a downloadable certificate from each of the dogs, cats, small pets and horses they’ve helped to find loving new homes.
