Owner has had Gigi for a year but cannot keep her due to too many pets. Socialization: According to the owner, around strangers Gigi is shy for a few minutes at first. She does not solicit play and prefers to stay to herself instead. Gigi has never been around children therefore behavior is unknown. Owner had 2 other cats in the home & stated that Gigi would jump on them, hiss and try to fight with them in the home. Owner also had 4 dogs in the home that were all spayed/neutered & stated that out of the 4, Gigi only got along with one of the dogs & with the rest of the dogs she would hiss at them and run away from them.

In the home, Gigi liked to be in her favorite spot. She enjoys playing with string and catnip toys. Gigi was kept indoors only & is mostly litter box trained. Owner stated that she uses the litter box regularly but also urinates in the house as well and she thinks it is due to Gigi being very stressed around the other animals in the home.
