GiGi, my new cousin

Introducing GiGi, the newest member of the family..... 




Gigi was surrendered/dumped at a high kill shelter on St Valentine's Day.  She was on the death row and was due to be euthanised on February 21.  My cousin and her mom called to have her put on hold and drove an hour and a half to the shelter the following day.  There were so many cuties there that they could have come home with 10 kitties.  They signed the adoption papers there and then.  Gigi was taken to the university vet clinic for checkup, immunization and spayed.

Here she is, safely ensconced in a loving home, purring a storm up whenever held and cuddling up to everyone.  How anyone can surrender such a cute, affectionate kitty to a known high kill shelter is beyond comprehension.

OMC, what a precious girl! I try to be a nice kitty, but I can't help but wish bad things on humans who would dump such a jewel at a kill shelter.

What a beauty we are so glad she was rescued. We wishes they all could have been.

Oui Oui said...

Such a sweet story! We are always happy to read Gotcha Stories. What a shame all the kitties couldn't be saved, such a waste of life. But we are grateful for the ones who are adopted and find love. It just warms our little hearts. Purrs to your cousin & her mom, they will reap so much more than they sow.
