DPA’s Cat the Month – February: Meet Millie!

DPA’s Cat the Month – February: Meet Millie!

This is Millie, an attractive black-and-white kitty with a soft heart who has transformed from a scared stray to a great lap cat! The rocky path behind her might surprise you, especially when you see how friendly she has become with people and other cats. She’s changed before our eyes, and we couldn’t be happier for her! And everyone is the winner because Millie is going to make a wonderful companion for someone in her new forever home. Millie’s Beginnings: When she first went into her foster home, Millie was very timid and preferred to hide. Like most rescued animals, Millie had been through a lot just trying to survive on her own. She was traumatized and didn’t know who she could trust. Fortunately for her, Dallas Pets Alive came along and linked her with her foster mom. Millie spent about a month hiding from her patient foster mom, Caroline, and the other cat in the household. She used her black-and-white markings to blend into the lights and shadows of Caroline’s home, fearful of all contact with the world past her paws. Time is a great healer though, and with Caroline’s compassion, Millie eventually made some tentative steps out into a more cheerful world, leaving the security of her haven under the bed and sofa, and even forming a friendship with Caroline’s other cat! That was about a year ago, and since then, Millie has transformed from a shy feline into an affectionate pet who is a full-fledged member of the household with enough confidence to greet house guests and visitors. She’s come a long way! Now we want...
