This week’s featured pet is a sassy little Calico cat named Ginger, who is as spicy as the name she was given.
Ginger is the proud owner of her own happy little family and takes her job of looking after them very seriously. She loves her mom, Stephanie Sanchez and also enjoys the company of her two human siblings, Cue and Millie. She can often be seen sprawled out, meowing gently for belly rubs. When she isn’t playfully chewing on her mom’s hands or stirring up mischeif, she adores a good cuddle.
Sanchez adopted Ginger from the Vicksburg Animal Shelter in January of 2022. She’s around 8 months old and has all the spunk and rebelliousness of a growing teenage cat. Despite her very tiny frame, Ginger is larger than life. When she wants attention, she won’t hesitate to climb up the leg of the closest available human. Her favorite leg to scale will always belong to Sanchez.
Ginger has an appetite for home cooked food that’s as big as her appetite for life. She loves to try and snag a taste of whatever is cooking when she can. She also entertains herself by chasing brooms and attempting to help her mom put up the dishes. Despite all of Ginger’s silly antics, there is no doubt that she is happy, loved, and so bonded with her family.
Sanchez said Ginger loves playing with plastic Easter eggs, running through her tunnel and drinking out of the toilet when possible. Ginger isn’t supposed to drink from toilets, but she has mastered the art of squeezing her little body under door frames and sneaking into forbidden territories. Sanchez loves to watch and play with Ginger. Seeing them together makes it obvious they were meant to be in each other’s lives.
Ginger generally likes everybody. She loves attention from guests, but is most content to curl up next to her family in the evenings and purr as she receives endless scratches. Night time is also her favorite time to stir up trouble. She loves to wake Sanchez up from sleep and request a good snuggle.
Sanchez looks forward to spending her time with Ginger after a long work day. She endearingly refers to her as “Gingy” and can been seen laughing joyfully whenever the two are together. Sanchez speaks highly of the efforts made by those in charge of the Animal Shelter and is so grateful for the day that she and Ginger found each other. Ginger’s life will forever be richer because of the love of her family and the comforts of her forever home.
