Facts about Gio

  • Breed: Maine Coon

  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Long
**Gio is located in the Aurora, IL area**

This is Gio, he is a 2 year old Maine Coon mix.

Gio's previous owners had a family crisis, and the kitties got lost in the shuffle. Very lost. Gio and another kitty were locked in a room for nearly a week before anyone found them. By then, they went from social, loving kitties to almost wild, spooked kitties. Thankfully, both kitties were taken to a new home. They were petrified at first, but came around.

Gio is now a love bug and loves to be petted. He does not like to be held but will tolerate being picked up if he knows that a love session will follow. His foster has several cat trees and high perches and that’s where he likes to hang out. He meows to let you know that it is dinner time and he loves wet food. If his foster just puts down dry kibble, he will stare and meow at them until they crack open the can of wet food, then he rushes to the food bowl and waits. Gio gets along fine with dogs and other cats.
