“I think that the world should be full of cats and full of rain, that’s all, just cats and rain, rain and cats … “
― Charles Bukowski, Betting on the Muse: Poems and Stories
KCAC’s Adorable, Adoptable Pet of the Week is written by Tecla Metzel of Kane County Animal Control.
My name is Rain and I came to KCAC as a stray with my mom and two sisters, River and Storm. We were only 3 weeks old when we were brought in with our mom. I was really scared at first and didn’t want to leave my mother, but then she got adopted. So did my sisters, so I’m the last of my family to go out on my own.
I admit I was kind of a mama’s boy. Venturing out was a bit scary for me, but all of the people at the shelter have worked with me to get me to not be so scared.
I must be catching on because now I can run down the hallway faster than anyone and then jump up on the nearest desk all in one fell swoop. I like to watch all the papers and pens go flying so I can chase them before I run and slide under the printer cabinet!
I don’t mind getting picked up and cuddled, but since I’m a male kitten with a lot of energy, I don’t want to waste a lot of time snuggling unless I’m very tired.
I do have a talking heart, which the staff calls a heart murmur. It hasn’t slowed me down and I may grow out of it, but only time will tell. My favorite type of home would be with people who will be patient with me, let me find my own space and play with me a lot.
Do you need to add a little Rain to your world?
