As his name implies, Gelato has a sweet side—and he’s looking for an adopter who can bring it out! Nervous in new places and around new people, Gelato makes sure to take his time adjusting before slowing coming out of his shell. But, with patience, he begins to show the true Gelato! If there’s one thing this boy is an expert at, it’s finding the coziest spot to relax in. You can often find Gelato curled up in a comfy spot you never would have dreamed of! He even likes to bring his favorite toys, including wand toys, back to his cozy nook. Toss a few treats in there and Gelato will be in kitty paradise! This guy simply cannot get enough tasty snacks and, when he’s comfortable around you, he may even sit in your lap to ask for some. During the day Gelato prefers to keep an eye on his surroundings from afar, but his prankster personality comes out after you’ve gone to bed! Gelato likes to keep his humans on their toes by moving his toys around during the night.
Gelato would do best in an adults-only household with an experienced cat adopter, and he may enjoy having kitty roommates!
Office Foster Cat
As part of our adoption program, some of our feline friends have the opportunity to live in ASPCA team members' offices. Living in an office allows cats to have a more comfortable and domestic living space, and allows our behavior team to learn more about each individual kitty's personality and needs. Through the office foster program, we are able to offer adopters a clearer picture of how their new feline friend will adjust to life in a permanent home. If you are interested in meeting one of our office foster cats, please note that the office foster cats are available to meet adopters by appointment only. For more information about meeting an office foster cat, please call our Adoptions department at (212) 876-7700 ext. 4120.
