“Don’t Hate Me ‘Cause I’m Beautiful!”


Who could possibly resist this beautiful flower princess? Dahlia arrived at the Quebec Street Shelter on February 22, which means she’s been here for nearly three months waiting for the perfect soul to take her home and appreciate her sweet ways.

This delicate 5-year-old has long hair, green-gold eyes and lovely markings. She’s box-trained, well behaved and outgoing. Those who have worked with her say she’s very affectionate “on her own terms”—well, people, she’s a cat!

Plus, she comes equipped with all the trappings such an elegant lady would ever need. This includes a cloth carrier, cozy bed, cat tree, scratching post, bowls and toys! All she needs is a home to call her own and an owner who can see she’s stunning, inside and out.

Dahlia’s dream is to live in a home with an experienced owner. She really wants a home that’s dog-free and has no kids under 10. She’s lived in a colony alongside other cats and has gotten along fine, although she does love attention. And, while she’s had some behavior issues in the past, she’s warmed up considerably while in our care, with gentle training and the company of her colony mates. This glamour puss would love a chance to give your home a touch of kitty class!
