Meet Gemma!

Hi, I'm Gemma! I am a female kitten that came into Prairie Paws, and I was in need of a little extra TLC. I had a bad upper respiratory infection, crusty eyes, and ear mites :(. Luckily I'm getting better, and maybe you can help me feel better too! I was born around July 25th, 2016, and right now I live with my foster mommy with other dogs and cats. I am very playful and very sociable! I even dressed up as a bumble bee for Halloween this year!
