Arrival Story:
I fell in love with Gia the second I laid eyes on her. She was a big, fluffy, long-haired raven beauty with apple-green eyes and I was instantly smitten. It was August 2001 and I'd been searching for "the perfect cat" to be my companion in the new apartment I was just settling into (my first all on my own) when a co-worker suggested we head down to Pet Smart on our lunch break and look at the for-adoption kitties. They led me into the room with the cat cages and the guy opened her cage door for me. I squatted down and smiled at her. "Hi, pretty girl. Would you like to come live with me?" She came right towards the open door and let the guy deposit her into the box. It wasn't until later that I realized the true importance of this moment - because Gia is terribly shy and skittish; the idea that she'd come to a stranger or allow herself to be picked up and placed in a box by one so calmly amazes me still today. She had chosen her home.

Gia - spelled Ghia before I changed its spelling - was listed as a 2 year-old stray rescued by the good folks at A.P.A.W.S.; a note on her cage said she'd been found, with her kittens, in some old tires in a tire store. It is obvious that Gia was once a house cat, because, though skittish, she is used to people and very much comfortable in the surroudings of a home. (The nicer the better, thankyouverymuch). Gia is a gorgeous, regal lady - very dainty, except when the need arises to kick butt (something she is amazingly adept at). She generally keeps to herself, though chooses to graces us with her presence when she feels like a little loving, or feels the food bowl is too low. She sounds haughty, but she really is the sweetest thing - her airs are part of her character, but don't detract from how charming and lovely she is to be around.
