Get to Know Gino


Domestic Longhair




12 Years



Meet Gino


Gino would love to meet you! He is shy and would do best in a quiet, experienced, adults-only home with another cat or kitten. Stop by the Pippen Fasseas Adoption Center at 1997 North Clybourn Avenue, in Chicago's Lincoln Park Neighborhood today!

Gino's Story

We recently asked Gino, a regal, grey-coated domestic longhair, what he’d like adopters to know most about him.  Turning away from his window perch, he responded, “still waters run deep,” before hopping away to nap in his favorite paper grocery bag. 


At 12 years of age, Gino, who was rescued from a hoarding situation earlier this year, has seen and done it all.  We are so happy that his journey ultimately led him to PAWS Chicago, and we cannot wait for an adopter to share in the next chapter of Gino’s life.  In addition to quiet contemplation at the windowsill or while spending time with his human friends, Gino enjoys playing with toys independently and getting treats (lots and lots of treats).  To top it all off, Gino also has impeccable litter box habits.


If you are a patient, kind-hearted, experienced cat person who resides in an adult-only home, you just might be Gino’s perfect match.  For more information on Gino and how to meet or adopt him, email
