“When I am feeling low all I have to do is watch my cats and my courage returns.”
– Charles Bukowski
- KCAC’s Adorable, Adoptable Pet of the Week is written by Tecla Metzel of Kane County Animal Control.
Trixie became a Kane County Animal Control resident when her owner surrendered her along with her calico cousin, Lucky.
But so far, Trixie hasn’t been as lucky as Lucky, and Kane County Animal Control is hoping she can find a home this holiday season.
Trixie is a beautiful front-pawed, declawed 9-year-old gray domestic shorthair. As she stares at you through cat-green eyes, you might swear that she can see into the depths of your soul.
On first meeting, she can appear to be a little shy, more than likely stemming from when she and her friend were uprooted from their safe home environment. But once she she gets to know you, she finds her inner courage and she has no problem letting you spend the day petting her.
For any family with a little patience and love to offer, Trixie will make a wonderful addition to your home.
