POW! Zoe 101 — This Beautiful Calico’s Name Means ‘Life’ in Greek

“I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul.”

– Jean Cocteau

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

From the moment you encounter this beautiful 6-year-old calico with the name of Zoe, you realize that she is full of life and sweetness. Her name actually means “life” in Greek and she absolutely lives up to the full definition of the word.

If she were human, the first words out of her mouth upon introduction might be, “Can we talk?” And as she insists on cuddling with you, she will begin to regale you with all the gossip regarding her day. Zoe could definitely give some of those real housewives a run for their money! Too bad there isn’t a reality show called, “Real Catty Felines of Kane County.”

As an owner surrender, Zoe knows what living in a real home is all about and is ready and willing to resume her place as co-hostess and main cat. She’s not that friendly with other cats, so a home where she can rule the cat tree will make for a calm introduction to a new environment for her.

If you are looking to fill your home with soulful conversations and the happy talk of a fantastic feline, then Zoe will be a wonderful addition to your family.
