“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. Lucky has long since been adopted and now it’s Trixie’s turn to find her forever family.
On first meeting this beautiful front-pawed declawed 9-year-old gray domestic shorthair, she 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 the perfect fit for your family!
The sun definitely came out for KCAC’s longest feline resident, Annie, who was finally adopted and is living the good life at her forever home. Congratulation, Annie! Enjoy every minute of your new life!
