Gypsy is a beautiful girl with loads of personality. She was originally found as a pregnant stray cat and put a lot of her energy into caring for kittens. It is now her turn to be a kitten and have fun. She might not have had too much socializing with people while wandering the streets, as she tends to be nervous of new people. She is very outgoing and is always curious but needs time to get comfortable with being touched. We feel Gypsy may do well with an properly matched male cat but she isn't a big fan of other animals.

Name: Gypsy
Age: 3 years
Gender: Female
Animal ID: 457382
Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Making it to a shelter is often just the first step on the long road to recovery for sick and abused animals. You can do something to help an animal needing urgent care.
