Project Description


GILFEE is a stunning seven-year-old GOLDEN SHADED PERSIAN. She’s a tiny mite at just seven pounds, is spayed and has her claws. My, but what a gorgeous girl! Autumn looks great on Gilfee in her black-mantled coat of vivid fall colors with swirls of honey, pumpkin, and apricot.  Her emerald eyes are encased in black eyeliner, and she has the sweetest brick red nose.

Gilfee was surrendered because she didn’t like the resident cats. She also lived with dogs and reportedly got along with them just fine. She’s been in foster care for about three months and has roomed with other cats, but we agree Gilfee would be best as an only or with one or two very laid-back fur buds. She’s a girl who knows what she likes, and she likes to call the shots, especially with other cats.

Gilfee, currently growing out of a lion cut, wears a thick Persian coat that needs grooming to stay mat-free. She doesn’t like to be combed, so she will need a sedated professional groom a few times a year to keep her comfortable. It is a must. Her eyes don’t weep like many Persians do.

Gilfee is a confident, friendly girl, but she doesn’t like to be picked up or carried. And she likes to be petted, but when she’s done, she’s done. This wee one will do best in an adult home where she can be her own girl. She’s playful, fun, and interested in the world around her. She will be an absolute delight for a family that values a sweet ‘n slightly spicy, independent girl. Her foster family has fallen in love with her, and you will too. Here’s the chance to have that golden you’ve always dreamed of.
