About Gustov

Born ~2017, M, Russian Black Persian

Adoption Fee: $300

Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is helping facilitate the adoption of this cat through our Owner Placement Program.  We take no responsibility for the health and medical records of this cat.  It is the responsibility of the owner and adopter to discuss this.

Gustov is NOT in a Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue foster home, but residing with my current owner in Mather. Adoption fee applies. Find out more about Owner Placement Cats.

Gustov’s owner says this about him:

“Gustov is an awesome cat and it makes me very sad that he did not work in our family. I really hope we can find the right home for him.”

In Gustov’s own words:

I am an immigrant from Russia, a born and bred (purebred I might add) Russian Black Persian. I have records to prove it, but of course, they need to be translated. I was alone all by myself for more than 12 hours a day in my first home. I was so lonely, then I was adopted this year on Ground Hog Day. Did you know Punxsutawney Phil predicted 6 more weeks of winter? Kinda dismal, right? I can relate: I came to live in a very nice home, with loving people to be a second kitty. The other cat is not to my liking. I don’t like being second! Then along came April Fool’s Day and I ended up at the vet and was neutered! Yikes! So scary and very uncomfortable. They had this idea that I might change my mind about the ‘other’ cat. Well! April Fool’s on them . . . still don’t like that cat. I need to be second to none!

My new people have a really cute little baby, but now they won’t let me play with her anymore. It seems she is too delicate for my batty paws. So now I’m off-limits there too. I’m sitting right here just shaking my head in bewildered disbelief.

I’ve lost about a pound of weight over the stress I am feeling every day. The Vet says I’m healthy, just need to gain some weight. I have vet records too! And they are in English. Although they too might need to be translated if you are Russian like me. I like Taste of the Wild Rocky Mountain grain-free dry food, but wet food?… uhhh, not so much.

I am really a VERY affectionate sweet guy, I promise you that! Being held, cuddled, and petted by you would be heavenly. I like lots and lots of loves. I will sleep with you at night and sit on the couch next to you for as long as you let me! I like to play with toys! My favorites are an electronic butterfly toy that spins in circles and catnip! You got catnip? =^..^=

I think I would be fine with older kids that know all about cats and like to play with them. Are you home most of the time? I need that too. But no dogs or other cats, please! I know I can’t stay where I am and I sure do want to be your one and only furever furbaby. From Russia with Love, Gustov

My foster mom says I am neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, eats dry food, and is litterbox perfect. They say that’s good!

I currently live with my owner in Mather.

Standard Adoption fee of $300 applies.

Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is dedicated to matching exceptional cats (like me) with qualified adopters who will cherish me and create an ideal forever home.

If you believe you’re my perfect adopter please explain why in the comments section of my Adoption Application, and contact Pam at or 541-290-8408. If you are unable to reach Pam please email

NOTE: We prefer families with children bring them to the adoption appointment. Why? This allows interaction between the children and the cat. This helps ensure they will be a good fit for each other. A mismatch between a child and a cat is not in anyone’s best interests!
