Dixie is friendly cat. She quickly adapts to changes in her environment and settled right into her foster home. Dixie requires a caretaker with patience as she learns to trust you. She can be shy and alert to sudden loud noises. However she will smell and rub up against you to let you know she is willing to let you earn her trust. She is not a lap cat and isn't fond of being picked up. She does, however, love belly rubs and crunchy treats. She 'trills' a lot, almost as if having a conversation with you. She would do better in a home with someone who can continue to work on her socializing skills and is patient and aware of her boundaries. Dixie was rescued with a litter of her own kittens, and also nursed another cat's litter! She did a great job raising and caring for eight kittens as a momma cat. Once her kittens are weaned and adopted, Dixie will be spayed and ready for her forever home!
