Meet Gideon

Domestic Shorthair
Location: Springfield
Gender: Male
Age: 4 year
Did you know that the historical Gideon was a prophet? Well, I think I'm a bit of a prophet myself! I predict that someone will love me just the way I am. I'm a low-key kind of guy. I won't be doing cartwheels when you visit me. And I'm not a Velcro cat that will cling to you. I started out as a stray. It's a tough life out there and you have to protect your turf and scrounge for food. I was brought here by a nice person and adopted but, unfortunately, the resident cat and I had our differences and things really went south. It was too bad because I got along with the humans, the kids and the dog fine. My guardians felt sad but thought I'd be happier in another home. I'm quiet and independent by nature, but I'm friendly and will be content to find a home where I can park my paws. Stop by and talk to an Animal Resources Counselor about me.
