No one purrs like Gaston, no one hugs like Gaston, no one sticks their face right into your phone like Gaston! This jovial and attention seeking big headed fellow is looking for a lot of love. Part of a slightly managed colony by a subway station, he was fed by passersby everything from rice and chicken to occasionally a can of cat food. Gaston headed into a trap that was set for another cat and immediately started chirping once inside to announce his arrival.
Gaston doesn’t hold back any of his emotions and is quick to headbutt and snuggle, but he can get a bit overstimulated and mouthy — occasionally with nips. He would do best in a home without young children and would probably prefer to be your only pet.
Gaston is FIV+ and will live a normal healthy and long life when provided with quality care such as a balanced diet and yearly wellness exams (like any cat). As FIV+ is not transmittable between neutered/spayed cats under normal circumstances, we are happy for FIV+ cats to mingle with FIV- cats in their adoptive homes (although Gaston would most likely prefer undivided human attention). Meet him at the Brooklyn Cat Cafe.
