Meet Gigi, the newest addition to our family.  Gigi came to us as a stray.  She's a little bit timid, but loving and playful.  Little did we know that Graphite was grooming her to be the next furry host. There is a romantic blog-story coming out soon regarding their romance!

Welcome to the family, Gigi!
