DAHLIA - ID#A046417

Hi, my name is Dahlia.  I am a female, brown tabby Domestic Shorthair.  The shelter staff think I am about 8 months old.

Sweet little Dahlia has had a difficult start to her life.  She was dumped at the shelter by her previous owner when she was just a few months old, and obviously did not get much in the way of socialization.  She is a shy kitty, but she has started to come around to accepting humans through play and treats.  She will always come down to see you if you bring a treat for her, or, if you bring out the laser pointer toy.  Boy, that toy really gets her going!  She gets along very well with the other kitties in her suite and you'll often find her cuddled up with one of her suitemates.  With patience and love, we believe this sweet little girl could become an affectionate companion in someone's home.
