Facts about Dizzy Dukes

  • Breed: Domestic Mediumhair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 33134634
  • Hair: Unknown
"We had the pleasure of hosting Dizzy Dukes at our house for several weeks while she recovered from an upper respiratory infection. Dizzy is a very sweet girl with a neurological condition that in no way affects her love to play and desire to be loved on. On the first day at our house Dizzy came out of the carrier and immediately wanted to interact and be pet by both my husband and I. She tends to walk in wide circles and will pace for a bit, but she is easily distracted from this with a toy or by calling her over to us. She did not seem to have any problems jumping onto the couch or bathroom counter, and only lost her balance occasionally when cleaning herself. She wasn't much of a lap cat with us, however she did tolerate my husband holding her for short periods of time. It will be important for Dizzy to have multiple litter boxes in the house where she can see them. She only had 1 accident with us before I realized this. (I'm unsure if this is related to her neurological condition)

She interacted with my 3year old spunky male tabby (Newton).Newton is very gentle and I feel she would do best with an easy going cat who understands when she is done playing and wants to rest. When my cat did try to chase her she was submissive and rolled on her side to show her tummy.

Dizzy is a sweet and wonderful cat who would be a great addition to any household who takes the time to learn all about her."

Our Adoption Process...

We set our adoption fees based on differential pricing, meaning our fees vary and can range from "You Pick The Price" to $250. Most adult cats are "You Pick The Price" and hounds and pitbulls are $35. Fees include spaying or neutering, initial vaccines, deworming, microchip and registration, a free physical exam from an area veterinarian, and one month of free veterinary health insurance. We will also provide a starter bag of Science Diet pet food and a collar, leash and other supplies may be purchased at our Adopt & Shop Retail Store. All animals are spayed or neutered before leaving with adopters; usually you can take your new companion animal home the same day you visit the shelter, otherwise within 24-72 hrs.
