Gigi has been part of my life since 2001. She was about 6 months old when I adopted her (or she adopted me--whichever way you want to look at it). Its hard to believe, when you look at her adorable face, but Gigi had actually been abandoned when I found her. How could anyone not love such a wonderful creature?

Like any self-respecting housecat, she now divides her time equally between napping, watching birds, running full-speed through the house, chasing her tail, catching an occasional mouse, begging for table scraps, and more napping.
