Your BFF
Gibby is a part of a bonded pair, he has to go home with his lovely life partner Athena! They love each other dearly and support one another through everything.

With his plush cheeks, bright green eyes and refined gray coat, Gibby gives off the appearance of a wise, kindly old man... Or the appearance of some kind of hermit wizard you’d find living in a forest, depending on if you see him before or after he’s had his daily grooming from Athena! Gibby would look like he just walked straight off of the streets in the middle of a storm if it weren’t for Athena’s (sometimes overzealous) tender love and care.

Gibby became a member of Furry Friends after he and his brother Whiskey were surrendered at 12 years old to our shelter, skin and bones and scared as anything. Whiskey has long since found his forever home, but Gibby was adopted and then returned after it was discovered that his kidneys just don’t work as well as they should.

This sweet potato’s special qualities don’t stop him one bit from living his best life though! Gibby is friendly and affectionate, always happy to see people and rubbing himself against your feet at any opportunity. As he is currently living in our office with Athena, Gibby sees it as his duty to oversee all of our paperwork and to inspect every donation that comes in... He knows that once in a while he’ll discover an open bag of treats and get to keep them to himself if he’s quick enough!

Gibby will excitedly wait at the door as soon as he knows our volunteers are nearby, sometimes laying dramatically on his side and waving his paws under the gate to get our attention! When it comes to meal times, Gibby will easily clear a bowl or two before checking Athena’s bowl to see if she left anything uneaten. Once he’s content that he has left no morsel behind, Gibby will make himself comfortable on one of our office chairs or on top of a cat tree and wait for a good head rub or shoulder rub from us.

With fur as soft as his, it’s no surprise that Gibby enjoys a good brush once in a while. Sometimes he will even crawl on top of your lap and gaze right at your face, it’s his way of saying ‘Love me! I’m perfect! Take me home!’

Gibby gets along great with other cats, adults and children.
