He's a big gorgeous boy, I saw his photo on the website after you said about him. Hope you are all going to be happy together, sounds like it so far.

To all my new purrrrrfect friends on this website - Today I brought Mr Rigsby back to our home.  He has already had a lot of fuss from my son with lots of brushing to his already beautiful coat and indeed I can say it is a Happy New Year in this household - but one with special memories of Snowdrop and Mr Gin and without whom we wouldn't have those memories or have known how special they each were.  Thank you all so much agan xxx

I was going to suggest Lesley as well, I think she is over run at the moment as well

Hi and good luck with Rigsby, if it doesn't work out, Lesley from Eight Lives Left Cat/Kitten Rescue is in Gosport. I rescued from her last year.
She is a long standing member of Purrs, and a lovely lady. We had problems rescuing because of living in a flat, although it was quite big. She was so helpful to us.

My goodness, apart from the commando stripes. Mr Gin looks exactly like our Munchkin! What a lovely boy. You must miss him very much.

Good Luck with your soon to be new furbaby.

Sorry to hear about your losses  :hug: Mr Gin was gorgeous, what a tummy!  :Luv2: I bet both he and Snowdrop would be very proud to see you opening up your heart to another cat. Hope Rigsby is the one for you, sounds like he's had a tough time of it himself :care:

Quick update - I've contacted the Cat's Protection in Gosport who let me adopt Snowdrop and Mr Gin.  They have a gorgeous boy called Rigsby who is a semi long tabby with white markings and whose owner had died.  He is about 13 years old and even though I've looked at his picture on their online website, I wouldn't have needed any encouragement to adopt this old boy for cuddles and fresh fish and lots of treats.  I'm over the moon and shall speak with Kate tonight to arrange to go and see Rigsby and then fingers crossed we can collect him and introduce him to our home for his forever from Sunday/Monday.  I'll keep you all informed - it will indeed be a Happy New Year now xxx

Morning all - thank you so much for your messages and well wishes - I have attached a picture of my Mr Gin showing his 3 commando stripes on his tummy.  Can't show one of Snowdrop in the same position as I don't have a scanner to put that one onto my laptop.  Either way here's hoping someone can help us with our new purrrrfect friend.

Sounds like you are the ideal home for an fiv+ cat , if your after an indoor only they make fantastic companions , have a look either in the rehoming section of purrs or on the sister site Catchat http://www.catchat.org/ good luck finding the next lucky lapwarmer  :)

Hi friends, I'm new here, but to give a quick history - I adopted the most gorgeous old girl who was 18 years old through the Cats Protection in Gosport about 3 years ago.  Sadly after 2 years of the best, unconditional company myself and my 12 year old son could have asked for, Snowdrop became a sparkly star.  We then had the good fortune (through Cat's Protection in Gosport again) to adopt Mr Gin whose owner sadly died of Cancer.  He was about 6 years old and again the most gorgeous heifer ginger boy we could of asked for.  He must have been the only boy who had shares in Greg's for their Cinnamon Swirls - spoiled but hey one of the family. Sadly, and without any notice, when he went for his check up from the neck up he was diagnosed with cancer.  So with much pain we had to say goodbye to Mr Gin after only having the good fortune to know him a year.  I doubt I have to explain how devastated yet honoured both my son and I were to have met them both.  Well our home is not the same, more so when the oven alarm "pings" and I have no padded paws waiting to be given that extra sausage, piece of beef or pork etc and for snuggles at night either with my son or myself and constant cuddles.  I would like to say that I would happily adopt an old girl or old boy, but I do fear I couldn't take losing them so soon - we do live in a lovely flat and so it would be a purrfect friend that stayed at home all the time, with cuddles, toys and above all a family for life.  Can anyone help?
