Try not to judge Gemma (ID 37075895) by her gruff exterior.
She doesn't mean to pout at Christmastime, it's just that she's become a bit of a loner. At only 7 years young, Gemma's considered a "senior" in the adoption world. She's been at the shelter since early November, watchng dozens of younger cats and kittens chosen for their forever homes. For some reason, Gemma’s special someone has not walked through the shelter door yet. Gemma seems unsure of fast movements or loud noises but really likes the comfort of a soft bed and gentle scratches to her chin. It may take a little time for Gemma to settle in her new home, but like so many of us, she just needs a chance!
