Rich, decadent, comforting...no, we're not talking about the delightful food, we're talking about Dutch Chocolate, a sweet-treat-of-a-cat!
Dutch Chocolate is perfect for someone looking for an active, sometimes-silly cat who will interact affectionately with them! She prizes her quality time with people, and shows her excitement with a cute "yip" sound when she sees you - no meowing for this girl, she has developed her own distinctive chirp-that-sounds-like-a-yip. Watch the video that is posted, and listen closely; you might think, what was that sound? Did that come out of her? Yep, she's a yipper!
Dutch isn't big on being held, but scratch her tail end, and she will get her yoga on, sinking into a Downward-Facing Dog position! Or she may just flop over in complete bliss when you pet her, totally unaware that her tail may be in the nearby water bowl; she doesn't care, she is all about the petting!
You might enter the bathroom and find her sleeping in the sink; or playing with the water that slowly drips from the faucet. She is young, active, and enthusiastic, and will swat toys across the floor, into the bathroom, and up the wall of the shower! She is basically always ready to play - with you, with toys, with pretty much anything, as you can tell. Clever and industrious, that's our Dutch Chocolate.
Dutch would do well with a scratching post or two in her home; she is learning what she is allowed to scratch, and what she isn't. Tell her, "no ma'am", and she stops. She is smart and willing to learn.
Dutch is a petite powerhouse with a big personality and beautiful eyes! Cute and adorable, attention-loving. Her ideal home would be with people who want to play with her and give her affection. She doesn't need ALL of your time, but she needs some one-on-one time with you, for sure; she's the kind of cat who is a companion and an active member of your family.
Dutch Chocolate has tested positive for FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus). FeLV cats have a virus that causes a weaker immune system - they do not have cancer! For the most part, felvies are just like any other cat. You could not pick one out of the crowd, and they generally do not require much additional care. As a bonus, we waive their adoption fees! APA! provides full coverage and treatment for any FeLV-related issues that arise after the time of adoption. Cats with FeLV typically have a shortened lifespan - we like to compare it to the lifespan of adopting a senior kitty, with the added benefit that they don't have chronic senior health problems, and that FeLV related medical care is covered. Dutch Chocolate is not contagious to people, dogs or other animals, but should live only with other FeLV+ cats.
