Meet Gumbo

Gumbo and her two kittens were found on the side of the road, squirming around inside in a taped-up box. A kind human spotted and rescued them, taking them into their home to help them get back on their paws. Our friends at North Georgia Animal Alliance agreed to take them in and help them find a home, but they were unhappy in a small space and were thus transferred to us in hopes of broadening their chances of finding a forever home. Gumbo is 2 years old and Okra is 1 year old.

At the start, Gumbo was rather shy and hid for the first few days in the shelter. But she quickly adjusted! Nowadays Gumbo is always out and about, making figure eights around visitors’ legs and arching into hands. She absolutely loves getting attention, and is known for following staff around as they work in the cat room. Her light tabby markings almost make her look like a mini bobcat, and her light green eyes are absolutely stunning. She is a somewhat petite cat for her age, dwarfed further by her son Okra, but that just means she can better fit into laps and cozy beds!

Gumbo and her son Okra would be great adopted as a pair, but would also be ok if separated as they have done fine around all of the other cats. They are sometimes seen hanging out together and bathing each other, so do still have a love for each other. Where Okra is the shyer of the pair, Gumbo attempts to bolster his confidence and encourage her son to get out and meet new people and cats. They would be happiest in a home without too much disruption, so ideally they would prefer a home with no young kids. At first they will likely be nervous in a new environment, but they will fully warm up within a few days to a week.

We're open Wednesday - Sunday 12 - 5 p.m but are doing meet & greets and adoptions by appointment only.

The adoption fee is $170 for both cats which includes a free veterinary exam within 2 weeks of adoption at local participating vets, up to date vaccinations, test for FELV/FIV, dewormer, flea preventative, microchip, & spay or neuter.
