Dinky is exactly as her name suggests, very small. At 11 months old she is a whopping 5.3lbs. She is expected to stay small as she grows into an adult.
As her foster, I’ve had the joys of watching her grow from 6 weeks old to the pretty girl she is now. We jokingly call her the “grandpa cat” because of the shape of her head, which is kind of blocky, and the funny expressions she makes. Also, her meow is low. The best way to describe her meow is like an old smoker, low and gravelly.
She is shy with new people and would take some time to come out of her shell in a new household, but she is soooo worth it. She is very loving and is the best night time cuddler. She enjoys playing with our other kitties. And don’t let her size fool you; she will chase around any kitty while playing. She is not afraid!
She does not seem to be a fan of dogs, and if she had her choice, would rather not be in a home with doggies.
Dink is a very very special girl and needs a home that will take excellent care of her. She does have a minor heart murmur which has gotten better with age. Originally it was listed at a grade 3 out of 6, but was recently reviewed to a 1-2 grade. So any future anesthesia needs to be done with great care, and with a very low dose and should be discussed with the vet before any surgeries. Because of her size it’s recommended to keep her on a very healthy food diet, and to keep up with regular vet visits. Kitty Devore had blood work done to see what could be the cause of her small size, but the blood work came out fine, with no explanation. Her new family should keep up with regular visits to a vet that can get to know Dink and track her growth.
Dinky has been adopted!
