Date of Birth: July, 2008
Biography: Dali's life has been quite an adventure
so far. He started out as a stray named Sweet Pea at the Paws and More Animal Shelter in Washington, Iowa. After
having surgery to be spayed, he nearly died (note -- most male cats are neutered!). Apparently the vet thought
"he" was a "she" (Jenni says this really does happen occasionally!), and he simply closed Dali up thinking
"she" had been previously spayed by someone else. Anyway, after Sweet Pea recovered from his abdominal
surgery, he came to Witty Kitties. Jenni renamed him Dolly, since "she" was the spitting image of a previous
witty kitty with that name. Jenni did more surgery on Dolly for badly dislocated kneecaps, and later discovered
his correct gender when she was excercising his legs from behind and happened to look down. Oops! Even though
he is a doll, we didn't want to give him an identity complex on top of everything
else. So we renamed him Dali (after Salvadore) -- his story was about as surreal as those liquid clocks!! We still
slip sometimes and call him "her" because he's quite small and so beautiful! Dali is also blind
in his left eye, and it may need to be removed some day. Medically he is fully recovered, and loves people and attention.
He may have arthritis problems later in life, but for now, everything is fine and he's ready to find his forever home.
