Arrival Story:
I work at a vet hospital/animal shelter, and I fostered Ginsberg and a whole bunch of other kittens. The others were adopted but Ginsey has lung damage from severe upper respiratory infection as a small kitten that turned into pneumonia. He wasn't a very good adoption canditate, and him and Banjo became such good friends I couldn't give him up!

Ginsey was a sick little kitten, but he seems to be doing fine now. He loves his "brother" Banjo and his dog Becky. He's a friendly cat and very calm but he HATES pills. It takes at least two people to give him one! Unfortunately he's sick alot so he has to have them :( When he was a baby I neutered him myself! (Not in a rubber boot, don't worry: I'm a Vet Tech and he was one of the first kittens I neutered...but he turned out ok :)

Ginsberg went missing from my apartment on Sunday, August the 2nd. I put up posters and fliers in my building, and several days later a neighbour told me that his son had hit Ginsberg with his car and he had run into the woods. I searched the woods and put up new fliers. 2 weeks after he went missing, I got a call from a dog walker who had found the body of an orange cat in the woods. I believe it was Ginsey, although I never saw the body as it was gone when the guy called me.

I'm very sorry Ginsey that you died scared and alone. Banjo and everyone else misses you very much.

Whoever reads this, please consider keeping your cats indoors for their sake and yours.
