Hi, I’m Dottie and I am a super special kitty! My two sisters and I stowed away on a H.E.L.P transport from a kill shelter in southern Illinois. Our foster family quickly found out that we were three super scared kittens. We didn’t even like it when they came in the room, but they quickly figured out that we LOVED to play, especially me! With their patience and love (and lots of playing) we eventually realized that humans are not so bad. Now, I love to run, play, and will let my foster family hold me. But my favorite thing to do is snuggle up on my foster daddy’s chest. I get along with my feline sisters and foster brother, but I would probably be best as an only cat as I like A LOT of attention. Children who understand how to play with cats would be okay, but I have never been around dogs so I am not sure how we would get along. I do have one special need. My eyes can be runny. The doctor said they are not infected and I might grow out of it, but right now they will need to be monitored and may need medicine in the future. I have come a long way since I snuck up here in June to become a great kitty that wants nothing more than my forever family to take me to my forever home. Will you be that family.
