* SAFE* 06/12/17 *** A volunteer writes: If Dixie weren’t a kitty, she’d be a supurrrr model. Just look at her stunning emerald eyes, soft tabby coat, bubblegum nose, and that pose! This senior sweetie pie puts cover girls to shame. And what you can’t see behind the scenes is her fabulously fluffy tail. Pretty looks aside, Dixie is a love bug, leaning in for head rubs and cheek squeezes, though she is also content to have some quiet time to herself. If you are looking to share your life with a lovely refined lady cat, don’t just whistle dixie. Come visit this beautiful girl at the Manhattan Animal Care Center.
