Facts about Gillian

  • Breed: Hemingway/Polydactyl
  • Color: Orange Or Red Tabby
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Medium
Hi, my name is Gillian. I am a Polydactyle/Hemingway and I have 6 toes on each foot (see . I was born around November 2013. My foster parents found me in their apartment building and were kind enough to take me in, give me food and shelter, and promised they would help find a forever home.

I live in a foster home with one other cat and a small dog. I get along with everyone. I like to spend time in the company of my human friends and play with the pets in the house. I like to wrestle with the dog and make my own fun when she’s not around. I love to explore any nooks and crannies I can find and chasing after the laser dot and other toys makes me really happy. When my foster mom goes to bed, I like to lay down on the foot of the bed next to her feet. And like most cats I spend plenty of my time sleeping and plenty of time looking through the windows to see what’s going on outside.

Please go to to fill out an application for me, Gillian, today!

A note from Gillian's foster mom: Gillian is very friendly and incredibly gentle when she plays and has never acted out aggressively towards any of the people or animals in the house. She gets a little scared when my friends dog comes over since he barks at her and the other since he isn’t used to being around cats but she might be more comfortable with dogs who are kinder. She has an odd habit of pawing on the floor around the water bowl where the dog food is also kept (she doesn’t eat the dog food).

She is still very much a curious kitten with a sweet temperament. She is not much of a lap cat but that could be due to her activity level and might change as she grows older. Also I have never observed any litterbox issues or food aggression.

She hasn’t been around children as far as I know but if they are old enough to know not to harass her I don’t forsee any issues. Any household that takes the time to engage with her and provide affection would be ideal. I live with two roommates and we all have very different schedules and are very relaxed in general and she hasn’t had any problems with our coming and going all at different times.

About Animal Allies of Texas

About Our Rescue Group...

Animal Allies of Texas is a 501(c)(3) animal advocacy/rescue organization, dedicated to improving the quality of life in our community. Our goal is to build a no-kill shelter on enough land to house not only "adoptable" animals, but "treatable" ones as well - those who need medical care or behavior modification to become adoptable. While working toward this goal, we will also engage in community service and humane education projects to help bring about "humanity championed by thought."

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold adoption events at one or more locations every week end. Please check the calendar on our web site for specific locations and times.

Our Adoption Process...

All potential adopters must submit an application, either online via our web site or a paper application at an adoption event. General requirements for adoption: You must live in the DFW/Ft. Worth/North Texas area - we do not adopt outside this area. Dogs must be primarily inside, and cats must be totally inside. Cats must not be declawed. All pets must be spayed/neutered if this has not been done prior to adoption. Adopter must agree to a home visit prior to adoption. Adopter MUST agree to return pet to AAT if he/she can no longer keep the pet or if AAT deems it to be in the best interest of the pet. An adoption agreement detailing these and other requirements must be signed to finalize adoption. Current fees are: puppies (under 6 months)-$200, dogs-$175; kittens (under 6 months)-$125, cats-$110. This covers all vaccinations, spay/neuter and microchipping.
