Sweet, Shy, Black-Beauty

Dixie Chick is ready to roost in her forever home! She's dreaming of one with soft beds and sunny windows, she loves to doze in either, especially when the sun is shining on them just right. She's also hoping there will be a patient person there who understands confidence and trust don't come easily for some cats. But, once they are attained these slow-blooming kitties have as much love to offer as any other, with an extra dose of gratitude because you believed in them when others passed them by.

Dixie is such a sweetheart, she's just on the cautious side. She's worked her way up to trusting that humans are okay to sit near, and she even will let you put her finger up to her nose and give her a treat. She's becoming more comfortable each day. She's downright at home when it comes to eating treats, she loves gobbling them up! We haven't seen her scampering after balls or really playing yet. But, she's such a young girl, we just know there's a springy, happy inner-kitten just waiting to play when the time is right!

Dixie gets along with her kitty roommates. Nap time on the window sill is a favorite group "activity". She'd be fine in a home with or without a cat buddy.

If you're interested in taking an uncertain, sweet soul under your wing and helping her come out of her shell, we have just the chick, err...cat! Dixie Chick! She would be so grateful for your tender love and is sure to make your nest feel extra cozy!

All APA! cats are fully vetted, spayed or neutered, and have updated vaccines and a microchip. Lifetime support is offered by our Cat Behavior Team.

APA!’s Barn Cat Program Provides You With Your Favorite Whiskered Workers

Some cats prefer mice-hunting to bird-watching, and some prefer laying in grass to sitting on laps. Here at APA!, we believe that barn cats still deserve a chance to live happy and healthy.
