Our SPCA Pet of the Week has certainly been around the block lately.

Gin has had quite a relationship with shelter life, as she first came to the SPCA of Hancock County as a one-year-old kitten. She the was adopted and was in a home for a few years until situations in their life led to her being surrendered to the Ark Animal Shelter in Cherryfield.

Gin was then there for just a few days before she was adopted again. Sadly she was brought back to the SPCA shelter here in Trenton a few days later, because she had a bad reaction to the previous owner’s cat.

Gin is a sweet eight-year-old girl who would be very content to just sit in someone's lap for an eternity. She can go to a home with kids, but because of her last reaction to cats in the same house, the folks in the know at the SPCA shelter are now suggesting a home without other cats for Gin.

She does very well with all the dogs that she's been introduced to, but as always the SPCA staff recommends a slow introduction.

Did you know that black cats are highly intelligent and magical?  Well, they are.

Did we mention that Gin loves to be petted and held and that she even gives hugs?  Well, she does!  Now, you might think eight is old for a cat, but Gin is here to tell you that she has nine whole lives, and only half of them are used up. She says that despite being middle-aged she has a lot of love to give and would adore somebody to love.

Could that be you?

If you have an interest in adopting Gin, then make an appointment to stop by the SPCA of Hancock County to meet her.  The shelter is located on Route 3 in Trenton.

The SPCA of Hancock County serves Ellsworth, Mount Desert Island and beyond, and is still operating by appointment-only for the safety of the animals, as well as visitors and staff. If you are looking to adopt, please check their website where they have an adoption application and the available animals listed. For general inquiries, please call them at 207-667-8088, email info@spcahancockcounty.org, or send them a Facebook message.
