One of his housemates, CALI, was listed last nite and is in Unknowns Status. GIGI is 2 years old and he is NEUTERED. He lived with adults and teenagers and got along with them and his cat housemates….No reason for him to be listed, he’s a purrfecty adoptable cat!! The ACC gave him an EXPERIENCE rating because he is unsure around THEM but that doesn’t mean he’s going to be unsure around YOU!! SAVE THIS SWEETHEART FROM YET ANOTHER BRUTAL LIST!!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per previous owners, Gigi has lived with 2 adults and four teenagers. He is described as fearful around strangers and will hide from them. His owners say he is relaxed, respectful with children and will not engage in play. He lived with 3 other cats and was relaxed and respectful towards them. Gigi has not been around dogs or small children. His owners say she scratches the wooden kitchen cabinets and is litter box trained. Reaction to assessor: Gigi was relaxed on his blanket and looks at the assessor with calm, relaxed eyes. Reaction when softly spoken to: Gigi rolls over on his side and inches forward for attention. Reaction to cage door opening: Gigi is calm and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Gigi rolls around playfully and stretches her body out for attention. Her tail starts to flicker back and forth when touched at the base of her tail. After a few soft passes she grumbles then whips around and swats (no claws) warning the assessor to stop. Gigi is reported to have a history of destroying the wooden kitchen cabinets and should go to a home that can safely cat-proof cabinets in the home. We advise future adopters to make sure to provide mentally and physically stimulating toys to keep Gigi occupied when left alone. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Gigi tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his or her new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children
