Pet of the Week: Gigi The Domestic Shorthair

UPDATE: Gigi has been adopted!

Gigi is eight-and-a-half, so she’s had some time to develop an attitude all her own.

She’s best known for her kitty conversational skills; she recognizes her name and will answer you if you call her by it. Her caretakers say her response sounds like “Hi” in people talk.

And Gigi loves, loves, loves food. She’s the defacto dinner bell around the shelter. When she sees food coming, she lets everyone know! While Gigi enjoys the occasional petting and stroking, don’t try to give her lots of affection when she’s trying to eat. She is focused on one thing — grub!

This pretty tabby likes being loved, but she’s independent, too. She’ll signal you if she’s not in the mood for cuddles by tapping you with her paw.
