Cat for Adoption: Gigi


Green-eyed lady Gigi could well be described as something of a sugar loaf, weighing in at a hefty 5 kg… not all muscle. Nonetheless, she is a stunning beauty. About 4 years old, Gigi has been at ARK for two years now, after being rudely ousted from her home when her former owner, keeping pets against the rules, was ‘‘outed.’’ Gigi is a princess currently living in far from palatial surroundings. Alas, she does her best to adapt and insists on taking afternoon naps in her favorite sleeping basket. She will give the shelter workers a friendly pat with her paw as they go about cleaning her kingdom, though it is not so much a playful pat as one that says ‘‘Good work, team. Don’t forget to clean in the corners.’’ Gigi is a sensual creature. She loves to (and lives to) eat, sleep, and play. A people lover, she’ll hop on your knee for a cuddle and purr. Gigi does get along well with other cats, but only those who totally understand that her favorite sleeping basket must absolutely be made available for her and her afternoon naps. No commoner, this friendly, companionable lady would be sure to (as the old song goes) help her new owner soothe ‘‘every wave that comes.’’
