Adorable Pet of the Week: Payton and Deacon Got Adopted! Rico Is Suave!
His gold eyes pull you in to his “catness” and before you know it, you’ve fallen in love with Rico, Kane County Animal Control’s black, 1-year old domestic short hair.
He came to KCAC’s shelter as a stray and everyone immediately fell under this little stud-muffin’s spell.
Rico enjoys spending his days lounging in the sun or interacting with the kennel staff. When he finds a cat toy, he chases it across the floor or hunts it as if he’s a panther in the wilds hunting his prey.
Rico is very friendly, enjoying a good snuggle while he warms your lap and your heart.
Payton, the owner-surrendered beagle, finally found her Charlie Brown family! We’re so happy for you, Payton! Live long and prosper! Read more about Payton: A Dog Arrives at KCAC That Will Steal Your Heart
