My story

Gibson is thought to be 8-10 years old. He is a very handsome tabby. He weighs 10.5 pounds. Gibson's special need is that he has been diagnosed with stomatitis, a dental disease. At his young age he has already had several teeth extracted. After intake and original dental care, including needed extractions, Illinois Humane has been able to stabilize him with monitored good care.

Gibson was born to play! He is always looking for someone to play with. He is a fun guy to watch.

Gibson is very bonded with his kitty companions in his foster home -- Squier and Dean. They came into Illinois Humane together and they have bonded even further in their foster home. It would be heartbreaking to split them up, so we must insist upon placing them together.

And, Mr. Gibson stops at nothing for food!

Gibson's one little hitch is that he is not always the best at drawing in his claws. For this reason, he is not a good match for young to mid-aged children, or individuals with thin skin or using blood thinners. He is a total sweetheart. He just doesn't always get it that he needs to draw in his claws.
