Dahlia is super loving! She rejoices in laying around with her humans and will sleep with you at night. She loves for you to pet her will cheerfully follow you around. Also, she prefers that any door between you and her remain open so that she can always be with you!

Dahlia recently expanded her wardrobe and bought a cute winter sweater (see photos!). On top of being fashionable and stylish, she doesn't mind it a bit when you put it on her. Probably because she knows she goes from 1000% cute to 10000% cute!

Are there any Austin foodies out there? If so, you've met your match in cat form! Dahlia lives and breathes for mealtime, and she loves to tell you all about her last meal and her next one with her sweet meows. You'll never forget to feed her because she's also a built-in alarm clock. When you do fill her bowl, she gets so happy she'll do some zoomies -- it's adorable.

Dahlia's other interests are playing and talking to you. She likes mice and wand toys the most!

Dahlia has diabetes and requires some extra medical care, which may include a regulated diet and/or insulin. For more information, please contact APA!

Dahlia's ideal home has loving people who are willing to keep up with her schedule (which is not hard to follow) and provide her with love and attention. Her behavior with dogs and kids is unknown, and she does her best to completely ignore the resident playful kitten in her foster home!

Dahlia is a doll! Contact us today to arrange a meet & greet.

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.

For further information or to meet Dahlia, please email [email protected].
