You cannot resize a raster image, like a gif, without losing quality. It's mathematically impossible.

Before you cut and paste, make sure you have the layer selected that you want to cut from (not a channel, a layer) and that youre in Image>Mode>RGB and not Indexed color mode.
You might also want to check that the image you are pasting to is in RGB mode as well.
