This is Gummie, a 5-year-old calico longhair. Poor Gummie was surrendered to a kill shelter where she spent many months in a cage. She had grown a bit cranky being in that cage and could you blame her....? So being kitten season poor Gummie was overlooked time and again and even worse they needed her cage for yet more kittens so her number was up! But a nice volunteer from BARKS saw her picture and gave her a chance to start a new life. Gummie is a quiet friendly cat. She would most benefit from a quiet home without small children. She is handleable and friendly, but like typical calicos only allows the petting on her terms. But we think she will be just fine once someone shows her its ok to love someone again. She would be ok with a few other calm cats as she prefers not to socialize with cats but is ok living with them. She does not like dogs. Gummie is in good health but has no teeth. She would need 2 small feedings of wet food a day but she also eats dry.
