Special
Needs
I'm Dawn, Adopt Me!
Domestic Shorthair Mix | Young | Female

Six-month-old Dawn, just like her name, will brighten up any household that's lucky enough to have her as part of their family. She's as sweet as a kitten can possibly be and she just loves occupying laps or being held so she can reach up and deliver a few nose kisses. She's a happy little girl and purrs constantly. Curiosity is all part of her wonderful personality, and she takes great delight in exploring everything around her. Playing with her kitty toys is another favorite pastime and she'll keep her family well entertained with her silly antics. Dawn brings joy and love wherever she goes. Dawn's adoption fee has been prepaid by a generous donor.

Dawn is positive for FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus), and can only live with other FeLV+ cats, dogs, or other non-feline animals. FeLV is only contagious to cats; it is not contagious to humans, dogs, or other non-cat animals. Dawn must always remain an indoor kitty, and needs to be fed a nutritionally complete and balanced diet.

Dawn's adopter must be at least 18 years old with valid-state issued identification. ARF encourages family members to participate in the adoption process, especially children. Please visit ARF's web site for information on adoption and to view more great cats.
