General Comments

Gidget is a miniature black panther with soft, silky, shiny black fur and piercing golden eyes!  One of those eyes is a bit cloudy, but that doesn’t slow this energetic kitty down one bit!  Gidget is non-discriminatory…she will play with any and every toy in sight!  Wave a wand toy in the air and you’ll be astounded by how high she jumps, roll a ball across the floor and you’ll see a black streak in hot pursuit, taunt her by making the cat dancer “dance” in the tunnel toy and she’ll dive into the tunnel after her prey!  It’s not unusual to laugh out loud while playing with Gidget or watching her play…she is so much fun!

Our sweet gal enjoys affection from her people in between play sessions and will seek you out with the clear intent of taking over your lap.  Once in your lap, she’ll reward your adoration and petting with lots of kitty kisses before she decides it is time to nap!  She is super affectionate and quite generous with head bumps and purrs.  She adores being picked up and cuddled.  Gidget enjoys being brushed because it’s yet another way to interact with you!  She’s even been known to climb aboard your shoulder if you happen to be bent over and in the right position!  Gidget seems to think she is a human baby…every time you pick her up, Gidget immediately leans back so she can lie on her back in your arms.  We’ve attempted picking her up in all different manners but she always ends up rolling onto her back so that her little belly is in the air.  It’s rather adorable.

Gidget’s loveable purrsonality is on full display when she is with other kitties.  She loves the companionship of other kitties, be it playing with them or napping nearby.  She also enjoys lounging high atop a kitty condo where she can have a great view, take a nice bath, and then settle in for another well-deserved nap!  Gidget is a great cat and an absolute joy.  We have no doubt that she will make some lucky family an awesome and entertaining companion!
