Adoption Announcement - 5/31/2017

Hello there! My name is Dixie, and you may have seen my lovely face on earlier Safe Place for Pets posts. I am delighted to announce that I have found my furrever home and am now an adored member of my new family. Before I came to Safe Place, I just had a mom and a dad, but now I have a big family! I have Michelle and Travis, my new mom and dad, Alex and Belle, my new brother and sister, and even a grandfather named Jeff! That’s quite a change, but I love it. It’s great to play with Belle and Alex and to get all that glorious petting from everybody. Who wouldn’t love that kind of attention? But when I get tired of it, I can go into the cave that my family made for me and recharge. Everyone is really great about realizing that I need my alone time too. Also, there is a great big chair with a nice soft wide back that I can sit on and watch what’s going on around me. Sometimes they even swivel it around for me so that I can take a ride. Belle and Alex have been giving mom lots of brownie points for finding me and bringing me home to them. And who wouldn’t love me?! After all, I’m sweet, playful, and gorgeous, even if I do say so myself! Even Dad, who wasn’t quite sure about having a cat, has to admit that I am one very special lady.

Many thanks to Dixie’s surrenderer for trusting Safe Place with her and his generous donation, and to her new family for theirs as well. And many thanks to Centennial Animal hospital for ensuring that Dixie was ready for her furrever home! Thank you, too, to the Safe Place volunteers for making the snuggly for Dixie to curl up in.

Adoption Bio - 4/20/2017

Hi my name is Dixie. I am a sweet, petite Tortoise Shell with adorable spots on my nose, I like to stay inside and follow my Dad around. We enjoy watching TV together. I curl up in his lap and really like to be petted and get belly rubs. When he moves I take over his seat. Kids are ok if older and I think I would rather be an only cat. It took me a long time in my previous home to settle down with my kitty friend. Please no dogs. We don't see eye to eye. My favorite toy are bottle caps. If you talk to me I will try and carry on a conversation. At age 7 I am pretty set in my ways. I like wet and dry food. No fish flavors. I like Wellness dry and Meow mix wet. My Mom and Dad had a hard time finding what I like to eat best.
