Facts about Dot

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 7335
  • Hair: Short
I’m a shy black beauty who’s getting over a rough start in life. As a kitten, someone threw me out with the garbage. Then I lived confined to a bedroom for two years. Then the kind staff at Manhattan Veterinary Group took me in, but being holed up in a vet’s office is no way to live.

Now, at nearly four years old, I’m with a KittyKind foster parent and am relishing my freedom. Cautious at first, I’ve gradually come around. I learned what ‘play’ is. I simply adore chasing string toys and the kitty-dancer, and I entertain myself pushing ping-pong balls around. I now know that I love to be brushed, to get belly rubs, to watch the birdfeeder, to sleep with my fosters at night. I’m still wary of big people approaching me on foot (I prefer them down at my level), but I think I’ll get over that too with patient care.

I’ve already been spayed and have had all my shots, plus I’ve tested negative for FIV & FeLV. I’m a scaredy cat with dogs, and a bit with other cats too, but I like lizards—iguanas, beaded dragons, you name it.

I’ve had it with bouncing around and would really love to settle down in a forever home. Let’s meet!

About KittyKind

About Our Rescue Group...

KittyKind is a New York City not-for-profit, no-kill, all-volunteer cat rescue and adoption group. All of us at KittyKind have opened our hearts and homes — and emptied our pockets — to save thousands of cats from neglect or abuse. Every cat we rescue is given food, shelter, medical care, a safe place to lay his or her head and most importantly of all, a reason to purr. We do not believe in rescuing a cat or kitten only to euthanize it if it has a broken leg or needs extended nursing care. We never give up if there is a chance of saving them. We take responsibility for each and every life we save and if a cat or kitten is unadoptable, they have a home with us for life.
We believe that animals are not property to be discarded, disposed of, or killed just for the crime of being homeless or unwanted. We believe that people should be friends, caretakers and protectors of animals. We believe that we must take responsibility for the life of every animal we rescue who through no fault of their own, is abandoned, sick, disabled, old or unable to care for themselves. We are dedicated to relieving their suffering, providing food, shelter, medical care and comfort until we can place them in a safe and loving home.

Our Adoption Process...

All cats and kittens are vaccinated and tested for FELV (feline leukemia) and FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus), and if old enough, are neutered or spayed.
We will ask you some questions about your home and we will be glad to answer any questions you may have. Adopting a pet is a long-term commitment. We ask you to sign the KittyKind Adoption Agreement.
We will always take a cat back FOR ANY REASON. We will also work with you to place her in another good home if (after a period of adjustment) the adoption doesn't work out.
We do ask for a $125 adoption fee to help cover some of our food and veterinary expenses. For certain purebred cats (Siamese, Persian, Maine Coon, etc.), we request a $150 - $300 adoption fee.
