Bachelor of the Week:Gio!

World, meet Gio. I can’t really say Gio, meet world, because I’m not sure Gio’s looking. You see, Gio is so cool, he doesn’t need to look. He just KNOWS. Knows what, you might ask? Pretty much everything.

Gio, doing his thing.

Gio’s got a few years on him. How many? It doesn’t matter, because he’s awesome. With those years comes wisdom, a relaxed attitude, an art for lounging, and a slight bit of constipation. Don’t worry about that last one, though. He takes lactulose daily to keep his insides moving along as smooth as his attitude. Also, it may interest you to know that Gio has FIV, but he doesn’t care, and neither should you.

Gio loves kids, dogs, kittens, other cats, and long walks from the food bowl to the couch. He’ll follow you pretty much wherever you go, like to the ends of the earth, or the kitchen.

If you’d like to meet Gio, he’s stashed away at his bachelor pad in the suburbs of Illinois. I can’t tell you where, though, because I don’t want all his fans to mob his house. Send a shout out to  or visit his Petfinder page here if you want to meet up and hang out for like the next decade or so. Gio’s waiting.

  • What a sweet boy!!! Just a note here… One of my FIV+ boys was diagnosed with chronic constipation, then mega colon. I can’t even recall how many Vets (and ER Vets) we had seen throughout the years. It took a completely unrelated medical issue for me to finally realize that he had IBD with constipation, instead of the more common diarrhea. He required steroids for another medical condition, and all of a sudden his constipation disappeared… completely. Nope, definitely not mega colon. The steroids have to be started at a high enough dose to bring down the inflammation, then they are gradually reduced to a maintenance dose. Simply put, if the starting dose isn’t high enough, it won’t work. Any chronically constipated cat should see a specialist to determine the cause.
