Diptop Dodd   

In shelter Cat

Merrifield, VA, 22116
Pet name:
Diptop Dodd
Domestic Short Hair
Brown / Chocolate
Due to Diptops age and activity level, he needs to go to a home that already has a kitten or young cat. He cannot be adopted as a single kitten.

Diptop is a sweet little guy who was trapped at an ice cream shop in Maryland. He appeared to be a lone kitten protected by many adult cats. He noticed all the other cats in his foster home and quickly decided he wanted to be friends with them all! He enjoys being groomed by a motherly cat but really needs one who will play with him and teach him how to be a good housecat. He can entertain himself for a long time with a variety of toys.

He is a little wary of hands and being "trapped" but will eventually settle in your arms for a little nap. He can have a naughty streak and nibble on hands when he is not interested in being held.

Diptop is eating his kitten food well and using his litter box. He MUST have kitty companions in his new home, but it is unknown at this time if he likes dogs. He was a little overwhelmed by a hyper toddler, but would probably be fine with older, quieter kids. 

His approximate birthday is 04/28/2023. He has begun his vaccinations and tested negative for FiV/FeLV. He will need to be neutered when a little older and must be microchipped before going to his new home.

Please note:
