Dilly can go from sweet to sassy in 0.2 seconds, but we love her dearly. Dilly was born with paralyzed back legs and she is incontinent, so we express her bladder twice a day. One of her back legs was removed because it was getting caught on the other leg and impeding her ability to get around well. Now, she can race across the cattery as fast as any fully functioning four-legged feline. Just ask her roommates about their narrow escapes when Dilly is on the chase! And this little athlete can quickly can pull herself up to the top of the tallest cat tree whenever the urge to climb strikes her little tabby fancy. She can be very chatty, and she enjoys the company of people. She came to Best Friends as a kitten and loves playing with toys.In all the ways that count, Dilly is just like every other cat. All she wants is a chance to pull herself up every day, into a loving forever home.Dilly's story is featured in our Animals with Special Needs section of the website which highlights special needs pets at our Kanab UT sanctuary. Read Dilly's very special story here.
