This tiny kitty named Gia is the only tortie in her rescue family. Her mother Cami, a beautiful gray cat, traveled from Kentucky to Minnesota [Click to see full story] with a big belly just to be given a second chance. She gave birth to 2 little grey kittens and Gia the tortie. Gia has been the shy one and always clings to her mother or her siblings, but the little tortie is ready to venture into her next chapter in life – a forever loving home.

The shy tortie girl has come a long way since birth. “She’s starting to play and purr when I hold her,” said Lindsey, happy to report Gia’s progress.
