On Valentine's Day, You Could Fall in Love With Memphis

On Valentine’s Day, You Could Fall in Love With Memphis

  • KCAC’s Adoptable Pet of the Week is written by Tecla Metzel of Kane County Animal Control.

The name Memphis conjures up images of the blues, Graceland and southern hospitality. The city is located 533 miles from Chicago, but you don’t need to go that far to bring a little Memphis into your home.

Screen Shot 2016-02-05 at 8.16.12 AMOur adoptable pet of the week is an orange-striped domestic short hair named Memphis that came to Kane County Animal Control along with his brother Tuxie on one bitter, cold day in December. Their cat carrier was waiting at the front door of the KCAC shelter when the staff came to open the building for business.

Despite his abandonment, Memphis exudes warmth and sweetness and craves attention. He loves to sit on your lap and gives little cat kisses while he’s snuggling with you. He has a more dominant personality than some cats, so he would do better in a home paired with more submissive felines.

Memphis would enjoy a home where he will receive lots of love and attention, because he will be sure to give the same in return!

Could Memphis be your Valentine?
