Gizzy found us in the fall of 2005. She climbed a 6 ft fence in order to climb onto Randy's lap. She was tiny, emaciated and ridden with fleas. We took her home, gave her a flea bath and made her ours. She quickly taught our full grown cats who was boss. Gizzy wasn't cuddly and didn't much like to be touched, but she loved "her" dogs. She would often spend much of the warm days outside in the backyard with our dogs Annie and Zoe. After they died, she was bereft. She and our new dog, Sadie quickly became companions.
We will miss her quirkiness and "take no hostages" personality. She never gave us any indication she was sick, until she could hide it no longer.
She lived life on her terms and we are grateful she chose us to be her furever family.
Gretel and Randy
