Gemma was surrendered back to PAWS on 7/12/17 after being adopted out for 9 months. They just did not feel that their home was a good fit for Gemma. She seemed scared all the time because they have kids and it was not a very quite home. Her previous adopter believes she would do best in a home all by herself with possibly an older couple or single person. She just seems to jump and be scared of every little noise. She is extremely sweet, loving, playful and loves attention. She will for some reason pee and poop on your beds, so be sure to keep bedroom doors closed. This was an issue in her other adopter's home as well and no one can figure out the issue. They had two other cats in the home and Gemma did fine with the female, but would attack the male cat out of fear. She loves to play with small cat toy balls and spends her time inside.
