“Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope.”
— a holographic Lei Organa in “A New Hope”
- KCAC’s Adorable, Adoptable Pet of the Week is written by Tecla Metzel of Kane County Animal Control.
According to “Wookieepedia” (we are not making this up) Leia Organa was a Force-sensitive female who served as princess of Alderaan, a member of the Imperial Senate, a leader in the Alliance to Restore the Republic and New Republic, and the founding general of the Resistance.
And now she can be yours.
Not that long ago in an earthly city called St. Charles, IL, a young kitten was rescued from the life of a stray by a goodhearted resident and brought to the KCAC starship.
Even though the cold nights and days of January were beginning to ease, frost was still on the ground as the winds of winter whipped through the Empire. And so it was that the Force of good was definitely on the side of this 7-month-old domestic shorthair aptly named Leia.
Her swipes of gray facial markings make her a stand out within the universe and she has the sweetest nature that will melt even the toughest Jedi knight. Leia is more than willing to play as long as she can have her cuddle time later!
A born climber, Leia gets along with other cats although she probably would prefer to be the only feline running the household. She is a princess, after all!
KCAC’s high-energy, playful, fun-loving Siberian Husky puppy, Maple, finally found her forever home! We are so happy for you, Maple, and we know your life will be filled with all the love and adventure you can handle!
