Meet Lil’ Dipper
Meet this tiny old lady! Lil’ Dipper can’t decide whether she’s a cat or a mouse – so she’s a bit of both. She strolls around in her cat-like body, but instead of a meow, she graces us with squeaks. We just love quirky little nuggets like this gal. Lil’ Dipper came to us as a stray, so we don’t know much about her history. The vet was able to tell us that she looks great, but will need a guardian to provide her with a dental in the near future. This is something most kitties her age get around this time in their lives. This petite princess is ready for her furever home and is hoping to find a hooman she can tell all her ‘squeakrets’ to.
