We don't actually own Gilbert. He showed up on the front doorstep last July and we searched everywhere for his owner and we knew we couldn't adopt him because we were/are at our limit for number of pets (which was then 15 cats and 2 dogs!). When no one called or showed up to claim him, we started looking for a home for him and even contemplated adopting him anyway ("may as well, we already have so many...").
I was contacted by a veterinarian at the Queensway West Veterinary CLinic in Kanata, who I had been in touch with to look for his possible owner, and they were willing to take him in as their shelter cat. So...we tok him there to the clinic and we was neutered and given his shots and unfortunatly he came back postive for feline leukemia, so it's a very GOOD thing that we never let him in the house where he would have been in close contact with our other cats! The vet realized they couldn't keep him at the shelter, but one of their vet technicians who didn't own any pets was willing to adopt him and take him home. I am so happy for him !!! He was one of those cats that I got SOOO attached to immediatly and felt protective of since he's so friendly and beautiful!! He is such a lucky kitty that he got a home and gets to live a life, even though it most likely will be short!
Gilbert...I will always remember you, beautiful little angel kitty!!!
