Hi there! My name is Dickens and I'm an eight-year-old girl with a sweet, delicate face and an ebony coat. I came to MaxFund in March 2021 because my owner had too many animals.

I am the cutest, most delightful little sprite, and everyone who meets me adores me at first sight! I really love being near people -- where there's a lap, I'll be sitting in it with my little purr motor humming away in happiness! I was very afraid and unsure when I first arrived at the shelter, so I would sometimes be a little bit bitey. I'm pretty sure it's because I was frightened and my instinct was to protect myself. But, now that my friends here have worked with me and helped me feel safe and secure, I no longer do that except for the occasional little love bite.

I'm also friendly with other cats and would be a good companion for them as long as they're nice and in now way aggressive. I am diabetic which means that I require a special diet and insulin. I've been known to occasionally be a little feisty about receiving my insulin, but I'm pretty sure I'll overcome this in a stable and loving home. I'm eligible for both foster and adoption.

Really, I'm just yearning for a human of my own who will dote on me and give me the multiple daily snuggles that I crave. As thanks, I will love you with all my might! Please come meet me - I'll be eagerly waiting for you!
