Dottie had been living on the streets since birth, according to people in the neighborhood, and she'd had litter after litter before we gained her trust and took her into our care. There, she went from a shy, guarded street cat to an affectionate and playful companion who loves to snuggle and chase balls of paper and other toys. Dottie loves interaction with people but she is also good at entertaining herself, so she'd be an appropriate pet for an apartment environment. Dottie has excellent litterbox habits and is a tidy cat. She scratches on her cat tree and turbo scratcher only. Dottie has a very loud purr that she uses generously—you can always tell when she's happy. She also has striking eyes, beautiful markings, and the most delicate little multicolored toe pads. Because Dottie lived as a stray during her youngest years, she has a tendency to play a bit rough, which is why we recommend that she go to a home without small children. She is learning her home manners, though, and with the patience and gentle guidance of an experienced cat guardian, she will be the perfect cat companion.

If you'd like to meet Dottie and are interested in making her part of your family, please click the green Ask About Me button (to the right) and fill out the form or e-mail us ( for an adoption application. Dottie's adoption fee is $60. Dottie is spayed, up-to-date on shots, and microchipped and has been treated for internal and external parasites. She receives ongoing topical medication to remain flea-free, and she lives indoors (some of the photos were taken as we were earning her trust in her original outdoor environment).

About Community Cats Count

About Our Rescue Group...

Community Cats Count is a foundation that protects and improves the lives of free-living cats in California's San Joaquin Valley. We are active in trap-neuter-return (TNR) and provide support for TNR efforts, and we advocate for modernized approaches to managing community (stray and feral) cats.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in providing forever home for one of our adoptable cats, please fill out an adoption questionnaire. After we receive the questionnaire, we will make arrangements for you to meet the animal you'd like to adopt. Our adoptable animals live in private foster homes. We will review your questionnaire and may ask to make a home visit. If the animal you've chosen is a good match for you and your lifestyle, we'll ask you to fill out our adoption contract and pay an adoption fee ranging from $50 to $90. All animals will be spayed/neutered, microchipped, treated for parasites, and brought up-to-date on vaccinations before adoption.
