Hi there, my name is Gumbo! I’m a sweet older lady looking for a lap to settle down in, and of course I have to go with my sister Grits. I came to the shelter with my two housemates, Grits and Crew when our mom’s new husband was allergic to us. I am very attached to my sister Grits, so we want to stay together, but our younger sister Crew has already found a new home, we were never very close. I’m a very social lady, and love to sit on a lap for hours, and to be petted and brushed. I have survived a lot of difficulties. I was a survivor of Hurricane Katrina, found wandering after the storm. My last human took me in after that, and I was with her and Grits until coming here. Grits and I are both amazing and beautiful ladies, please give us a chance. We have a lot of love to give!
