Meet Gibson

I’ve been in a foster home for a few weeks and the difference in me is night and day. Hi, I’m GIBSON.  My favorite thing was to curl up in her lap and purrrrr myself to sleep!  Took me a little while to trust her.  At first I hissed at everything, even my food dish. Soon I became a total snuggle bug, begging for petting.  Of course everything’s always better when it’s MY idea.  Sometimes I’m Mr. Independent and all I want is food and a little solitude.  (I hear humans can be like that too.)  However, I’ve been known to get a bit ‘huffy’ or ‘miffed’ if you stop giving me attention and I wasn’t done. I’m not fond of being picked up (don’t know where you plan to take me!), but I’ve learned that ‘being cute’ means I get more attention.  I’m good at entertaining myself and love to nap in sunshine.  I’m not very energetic when I play, but I’m learning how fun it is.  I will do best as your only cat.  If you're looking for a sweet Lap Cat, your search is over!  **



Gibson can be seen at Pet Supplies Plus (720 E Ogden, Naperville).

He is microchipped, up to date on all vaccinations, neutered, and litter box trained.

His adoption fee is $135.  If you are interested in meeting Gibson, fill out our Online Application today! 

Once your application has been approved, an A.R.F. volunteer will be able to contact you to arrange a meeting.

Gibson is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. Learn more about our pet adoption process.

All pets adopted from A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation include the following as part of their adoption fee:

  • Spay/neuter or a certificate for a low-cost spay/neuter when medically recommended
  • Microchip and registration, a permanent identification to reunite lost pets with their owners
  • Initial de-worming and flea and tick treatment
  • Age-appropriate testing for heartworm/FIV-FELV
  • Age-appropriate vaccines
  • Pre-adoption medical exam
  • A certificate for a free healthy pet exam at one of A.R.F.’s participating veterinarians within 7 days of adoption
  • Offer for a no-risk 30 day free trial with Trupanion pet medical insurance

If a cat or dog is on our website, it is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. If you find yourself interested in one of our animals, submit a no-commitment application immediately. Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but does get you a head start with the adoption approval process. Due to a high volume of applications, we are often unable to respond to questions until your application has been approved in approximately 3-5 business days.

We do not schedule meetings until you have an approved application.

A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation does not have a facility where applicants can visit our animals.  The majority of our dogs and cats are brought to adoption events by our volunteers. We invite everyone to come to our events, but we give priority to pre-approved applicants.

If you’re invited to meet an animal:

  • Plan to arrive on time (or early), as we cannot hold animals for any reason.
  • All human household members and dogs (if adopting another dog), must be present in order to be considered as a potential adopter.

Thank you for your interest and cooperation!
