Gio & Lola

Gio & Lola

Breed/Type: DSH

Location: Temple, TX

Needs foster care by: January 17, 2023
Needs foster care until: December 1, 2024

Urgent!! Senior kitties need a foster now – Dec. 1, 2024. The owner is stationed in Japan and could not take Gio and Lola with them. They are currently staying in a household that is not a good fit because of 3 large dogs, and they are very stressed out and not doing well.

A family member is willing to help transport within a 150-mile radius of Temple, TX. They might be willing to transport further within reason to find a safe foster home.

Gio is a senior DSH, who is good with people, children, female cats, and small and medium cat-friendly dogs. Gio is an alpha male and does not get along with other male cats. Gio loves people and will talk your ear off. Gio is very chatty and loves to cuddle. He’s super sweet and sensitive, he seems to know when you are upset and will come to sit on you to try to make you feel better.

Gio is afraid of loud storms and will hide in his litter box. In the past, during storms, he has lost bladder control, so the owner uses a calming medication if a storm is pending. Gio also is on medication for Hyperthyroidism and needs to go to the vet every three months for blood work.

Lola is a senior black DSH, who is good with all but is timid and shy and would do better in a quieter household.  Lola is good with people, children, cats, and calm smaller or medium cat-friendly dogs that will not chase or bother her. Lola has arthritis and needs to be able to walk around freely without being chased or pounced on.

Lola, at times, can be very solitary and shy, and may take time for her to warm up to you.  Lola is very sweet and cuddly, she loves men and will immediately try to crawl into their laps to make them pet her.

Gio and Lola are very bonded and can often be found napping with each other.
