It's the last shopping weekend before Christmas. This year, the best gift you can give is a home to Gibson from Crash's Landing.

Crash's Landing is a non-profit, no-kill cat rescue center.  Since opening in Grand Rapids in 2002, Crash's Landing has helped more than 2,500 cats. But there is still work to be done.

Each Friday on 100.5 The River is Purrrfect Friday, where we feature a cat from Crash's Landing that needs a home.

This week, we're spotlighting Gibson.

Gibson showed up in the garage of a Crash's Landing volunteer about four years ago. He came back for a few days, disappeared for a couple of weeks, then came back again. This time Gibson was brought in for testing.

Gibson was already neutered and he tested negative for FIV and Feline Leukemia. He is a very nice cat. No one knows where he came from, but it is suspected he previously had a home and was left behind.

In 2016, Gibson got a high temperature that was unresponsive to antibiotics. After some testing, he was retested for Feline Leukemia and he tested positive. After a couple of weeks of treatment, he recovered nicely from the initial health scare.

Today, Gibson is dealing with inflammatory bowel disease. He requires regular medication, but is doing well and still acts like his happy self.

Come into Crash's Landing to meet Gibson.
