Dixon – Adopted 05/19
Here’s a little bit about Dixon from his foster family:
“Dixon has been vacationing with us since Feb and we have learned a whole new cat vocabulary! Have you longed to speak Meow? Dixon can be your live in tutor! My entire family is practically fluent in only 3 months. Dixon speaks with his eyes as well as his vast verbal cues. He will give you a long lash eye batting, should you disturb his meditation hour.
We believe Dixon may have a martial arts background. He is the master of interesting poses and is quick with a paw. ( While standing on just three legs, he can use his back foot, to scratch his neck! ) He blends easily into the darkness.
Dixon does not climb on counters, nor tables and has very clean bathroom behaviors. He buries both liquid and solid and has never overshot the open box (he will also use a covered box). He isn’t picky about litter, eats most any wet & dry food and most treats. But he does have a mild cat nip habit. If he becomes grouchy he will first tell you with his “words,” then retreat to his nip-laden “kitty can’t cope” toy.
Dixon takes vitamins and pills like a champ as he is food motivated. ( Easiest cat I ever had to pill.) Squish whatever it is up -in whatever food is handy- and place it in front of Master D…gone. If he is hungry in the early am, he will wait patiently curled up next to you. Not at all a pest.
Although the theory has not been completely tested, we feel this sleek, black panther- looking feline longs to be an indoor AND outdoor kitty. He has hinted several times over breakfast. And again at dinner. He looks woefully out our windows and front door- even cautiously peaking thru blinds.
He does well with mature dogs- even those that come to visit. His current roommate is a larger senior male. Dixon is fond of him – they will lay together, eat together and groom each other, very rarely argue.
Do you have a groovy little patch of land he can patrol? With the clink of a spoon on food bowl; he’s back on your stoop. Need more details? Stop by! Dixon’s waiting for you!”

Dixon has hyperthyroidism, a condition that can be common in older cats. It doesn’t phase him a bit and is treated with an affordable daily pill.
Dixon is a DDAF Senior: Through generous funding from the Doris Day Animal Foundation (DDAF) to support senior cats, we are able to offer Dixon’s adopters up to $100 in post-adoption support for qualified non-routine veterinary care, such as dental care, surgery, diagnostics, and certain prescription medications.
