We adoped Dotsy after she was given up by her loving owner. His new wife didn't want her around the newborn baby. Dotsy was so depressed she wouldnt groom herself. She was scared to death of woman but quickly bonded with my husband. Two yrs later Dotsy is a very happy lady. She gets along with her two kitty sisters and three little doggy pals. She even loves me a little bit now too!
