Meet Dipsy

Hello, I’m Dipsy – I’m part of the Teletubby gang.  I’m 13 weeks old and looking for my forever home and family.  I am a complete love bug and adore snuggling with my humans.  After a day of play, you can find me cuddling in your lap.  I am very spunky with a lot of energy.  I love to play with my mom and the other cats in the home – we chase each other around, playing with ping pong balls, spring coils and catnip mice.  I am quite an energetic and social kitty and needs to be adopted with another cat or kitten, or into a home that already has another active cat or kitten. My favorite toy is the bird feather cat teaser.  I can jump so high and capture it mid-air.  My foster mom is quite impressed with my prowess and the heights I can reach.   If you are looking to adopt a best friend for me, my mom Sunshine is also available for adoption.  While we are not a ‘bonded pair’, we love each other very much and are the best of friends.  Two kitties are always better than one!  I would love to join your home and become a part of your family.  

We encourage you to consider adopting kittens in pairs!  There are several reasons why Dipsy would do good with a friend, including:

-Two kittens keep each other entertained - they will play and get all their energy out on each other in time for snuggles with you!

-Having two kittens to play with each other prevents "I'm lonely and bored" behavioral issues.

-Watching two kittens wrestle is quite possibly the cutest thing you will ever see.

-The kittens will teach each other "how to cat" and learn to be more social with humans and people.

-You'll save two lives instead of one!

Dipsy is microchipped, up to date on all vaccinations, neutered, and litter box trained.

Dipsy's adoption fee is $165.  Please note A.R.F. does not approve applications for any kitten under 6 months of age to families that live outside of Illinois and/or beyond 100 miles of Wheaton or Glen Ellyn, IL.

If you are interested in meeting Dipsy, please fill out our  online kitten adoption application at https://www.arf-il.org/adopt/application/ today!

Once your application has been approved, an A.R.F. volunteer will be able to contact you to arrange a meeting.

Dipsy is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. Learn more about our pet adoption process.

All pets adopted from A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation include the following as part of their adoption fee:

  • Spay/neuter or a certificate for a low-cost spay/neuter when medically recommended
  • Microchip and registration, a permanent identification to reunite lost pets with their owners
  • Initial de-worming and flea and tick treatment
  • Age-appropriate testing for heartworm/FIV-FELV
  • Age-appropriate vaccines
  • Pre-adoption medical exam
  • A certificate for a free healthy pet exam at one of A.R.F.’s participating veterinarians within 7 days of adoption
  • Offer for a no-risk 30 day free trial with Trupanion pet medical insurance

If a cat or dog is on our website, it is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. If you find yourself interested in one of our animals, submit a no-commitment application immediately. Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but does get you a head start with the adoption approval process. Due to a high volume of applications, we are often unable to respond to questions until your application has been approved in approximately 3-5 business days.

We do not schedule meetings until you have an approved application.

A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation does not have a facility where applicants can visit our animals.  The majority of our dogs and cats are brought to adoption events by our volunteers. We invite everyone to come to our events, but we give priority to pre-approved applicants.

If you’re invited to meet an animal:

  • Plan to arrive on time (or early), as we cannot hold animals for any reason.
  • All human household members and dogs (if adopting another dog), must be present in order to be considered as a potential adopter.

Thank you for your interest and cooperation!
