From the Foster:
Gia is a talkative, expressive, 8-pound sweetheart. She's timid at first, but once she feels at home, she's definitely the boss. Her hobbies include catching the worm on a stick, growling at passing neighbor dogs, sleeping in houseplants, wearing pretty dresses, climbing to the highest shelf in a room, sitting on computer keyboards, giving awesome kitty kisses, and unsuccessfully trying to convince her senior foster sister to play chase.
Gia also likes lounging in the bay window, cuddling with people, and playing with her foster brother Halo (before he was adopted). If ever she is around children or adults who aren’t paying attention to her body language and vocalizations, she will give light warning swipes/nips when she's overstimulated. She would do best with a family that understands that she's not always ready for petting.
Her ideal home would be as an only cat. She would also be happy in a home with a playful, outgoing adult cat that likes to play a little rough and doesn't mind being bossed around.
If you want to find out more about her, her foster mom keeps a facebook album of her adventures at https://www.facebook.com/clarinetjenn/media_set?set=a.797470979646.1073741843.4503555&type=1
All cats are in individual foster homes throughout the Twin Cities.

If you live in MN, WI, IA, SD, ND, or IL and would like to meet/adopt this animal or anyone else, then please fill out an adoption application at http://secondhandhounds.org/adoption-information/and the foster(s) will be in touch! Keep in mind that there may be multiple applicants applying for the same animal(s). You only need to complete 1 application for multiple animals that you're interested in.
Note - We change an animal's listing to say "PENDING ADOPTION" when they already had a meet and greet with a family who plans to adopt that animal. We put "NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS" on a listing when an animal has multiple applications in and the foster has asked to stop accepting any more while they review the applications they've already received.
