Our sweet Gisele had a flare up of her kidney disease from which she was unable to recover, despite the best efforts of her veterinary team. She crossed the rainbow bridge on July 13, 2024 and we will miss her.

Hello, my name is Gisele, and I was adopted from Cat Guardians seven years ago. I shared a wonderful life with my mommy and daddy, who loved me dearly, and I loved them right back. I’m a true people cat! I enjoyed being wherever they were, watching their activities, rubbing against their legs, and getting ear scratches in return.

However, things changed after daddy passed away. Mommy couldn’t take care of me by herself, so she made the difficult but loving decision to bring me back here.

Adjusting to this change has been tough. I miss my family deeply, and while the volunteers here are amazing, I spend a lot of time looking out the window, waiting for a visitor. I’m also not very comfortable around other cats, so I’ve been staying in a room by myself for now.

Being an older gal, I have a few special medical needs. I receive fluids three times a week for kidney disease and need special food, which is easy to get with a prescription. I also take a pill every day for my thyroid. The kind people at the shelter will ensure my new family has everything necessary to keep me healthy and happy.

I long to be back in a loving home where I can thrive and be happy again. I still have so much love to give! I know there are people out there looking to adopt special ladies like me. If you think you might be that person, please submit an application and come meet me. I can’t wait to meet you!
