Hello! I'm Gyro! I was found as a stray and dropped off at the shelter without any background or history, so I'm my past is a bit of a mystery. It seems as if my previous people didn't want me anymore because no one ever came to claim me. That's OK thought, because the nice people at the shelter are taking GREAT care of me. They gave me a soft place to sleep and lots of yummy wet food, so I'm enjoying my stay here. Although this place is pretty nice, it would be awesome to find a new home soon. As a 2 year old, I'm still a young adult cat, so I could be a good companion for many many years to come. Sound good to you? Come to the shelter and see me!

As a Hidden Gem, I get my very own volunteers who spend extra time with me and work with me on basic training needs. That way, I’ll be extra ready to settle into my new home! And, because I’ve been here a little bit longer than my friends, staff have had the opportunity to get to know me really well, and they will gladly answer any questions you may have about me.

As an extra "thank you" for considering taking me home, my adoption fee has been waived*!
