POW! Home Is Where the Heart Is, And Where Angie Can Be, Too

“Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.”

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

Your home is your base, the place where you go to heal from the day’s traumas and events. It’s the place where you can hide out until you have re-energized enough to face the new day. Losing that foundation can throw your entire life into such an upheaval that you may not fully recover from the effects for years to come.

So it is for any domesticated cat or dog that becomes displaced or surrendered after spending a significant amount of its life trusting that their current environment is truly their forever home.

The positive spin on this scenario is that new beginnings can occur from even the most heartbreaking of situations.

Angie is a 5-year-old brown and gray tiger recently surrendered to KCAC because her owner was no longer able to care for her. She comes across as quite timid at first, but after a short period of time, she begins her warm-up process.

As you begin to grow on her, she will start to show her sweetheart side, and within minutes you’ve become her best friend. Playing is for kittens, according to her rules, because her focus is more on cuddling.

Her one request is that you make sure you have enough blankets on the couch or the floor for her to show you her burrito trick where she actually wraps herself up, by herself, into a blanket burrito. It’s the only magic she knows, but it definitely is a crowd-pleaser.

Angie deserves a fresh start and a second chance at a forever home, as do so many displaced former pets. Are you the one to make her life complete?
