My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Dakota is a long-haired grey and white tuxedo sweetheart, who will swipe a treat right out from under anyone if given the chance. She is a sweet, shy, gentle, and reserved cat who enjoys the quiet life, and would love a forever home with other relaxed kitties or alone so long as she has a view with a window, and plenty of pillowy hiding spots around the house. She loves being talked to, playing with string or feathers, and sunbaths by the window. Dakota needs an extra special human who understands that she eats a special diet, and may be slow to open up. Found in a drainage pipe with two kittens covered in mud and with most of her teeth removed later due to dental disease (cured now), Dakota has fought very hard for her place in the world and would love to share it with you.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

There is an application and fee required for adoption of our kitties. We begin with a phone interview. If that goes well then an appointment is set up for the potential adopters to come and meet our kitties. If one is chosen a home inspection is scheduled. If that goes well the darling kitty is delivered and a follow up call will happen a week or so later.
