Meet Gizzy

Dearest Gizzy. This is Gizzy's second time at the shelter, through no fault of her own. Her previous two owners were unable to keep her due to their own health challenges. Gizzy first came to us in 2014. She was quickly adopted and lived with her owner until this April when she was re-surrendered.

Over the course of her stays here, we have come to know Gizzy as a shy, quiet lady. She is now approaching 13 or 14 years of age, we believe. She finds shelter life stressful and spends most of her time hiding under a blanket or in her bed. We would love for her to enjoy the safety and security of a home environment again.

Due to her shy and retiring nature, potential adopters tend to pass her by. Being a black cat does not help, either. Pets with black fur tend to linger longer at shelters before being adopted. However, once Gizzy gets to know you, she becomes a real sweetie.

Our Animal Team Leader, Kelli, has known Gizzy throughout both of her tenures here and explains, "Gizzy is an older girl that enjoys quiet, calm environments where she can relax and snuggle in her bed. She enjoys being petted, but prefers to keep all four paws on the ground." What does her ideal forever home look like? Kelli went on to say, "She would do best in a family that can give her the time and space to adjust at her own speed. The family will need to understand that she will probably be more of an observer rather than an outgoing, needy girl."

If you are on the lookout to bring a quiet sweetheart into your home, consider Gizzy. You will give her a new lease on life that she very much deserves. Gizzy can be seen in Pen 28.
