We’re Adopting the Stray Kitten and Naming Her Gigil: Thank You, Friends For Life Cat Rescue!
This holiday season, my wife and I will be celebrating a new furry addition to our family. We’ve adopted the Chartreux kitten that we’ve been fostering (and I’ve been posting photos of never-endingly on social media) since late August. We’ve decided to name her Gigil.
GIGIL is a Tagalog word meaning the irresistible urge to pinch or squeeze something or someone that is unbearably cute.

During the summer, we found Gigil scared, hungry, and abandoned in our neighborhood. Since then, we’ve fallen in love with her, and she’s become close friends with our one-year-old cat Kofi and our two five-year-old ferrets, Tricky and Nessie.
We would not have this wonderful joy in our lives without the help, care, and advice from Friends For Life Cat Rescue in Frederick, Maryland. I cannot emphasize that enough.
