“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.
On first meeting this beautiful front-pawed, declawed 9-year-old gray domestic shorthair, Trixie can appear to be a little skittish, more than likely stemming from when she and her friend were uprooted from their safe home environment.
As she stares at you through cat-green eyes, you might swear that she can see into the depths of your soul. She spends much of her day successfully hiding, but once she trusts you, once she finds her inner courage, she has no problem letting you spend the day petting her.
If you have a little patience and love to offer, Trixie will be a perfect fit with your family!
Waffles, the golden tan dachshund with energy to burn finally found her forever home last week. Enjoy playing with your new sibling, Waffles!
Stay, Roni, stay! Roni, a 7-year-old Chihuahua found running as a stray with Mac, the 7-year-old min-pin, was adopted last week. Congratulations, Roni!
