“There are two means of refuge from the misery of life—music and cats.”
– Albert Schweitzer
- KCAC’s Adorable, Adoptable Pet of the Week is written by Tecla Metzel of Kane County Animal Control.
She has the cherubic face of a young kitten mixed with the all-knowing eyes of a cat that has seen a lot in her first year and a half of life. Her name is Annie, and she came to Kane County Animal Control along with five other kittens. Her siblings found their forever homes, and Annie knows her permanent family could walk through the door any minute.
Sweet and loving, she is also very independent. She might take some time getting used to other cats right off the bat, but that’s just her nature. To her, friends are forever, so a little bit of time getting to know another cat is well worth it.
Once she feels the relationship with another feline is cemented, she doesn’t hesitate to spend her days playing with them. Of course, it’s almost a given that having plenty of toys to play with would make for an ideal home. Oh, and could you throw in a lot of petting sessions, too?
“The sun will come out tomorrow” is a line from the song “Tomorrow” sung by Little Orphan Annie in the musical Annie. KCAC’s little orphan cat named Annie believes with all her heart that her brightest days are also ahead.
High-energy Harley, KCAC’s 2-year-old Lab/Rot couldn’t contain himself as he tugged and pulled his new owner out of the animal control building and into the waiting vehicle. He had been adopted and was going to spend his life with his new fur brothers that he liked the minute he met them! Finally, he had a family that wanted him and, better yet, finally, Harley was going home!
Congratulations to Mia, our little shy 1-year-old Chihuahua. She stole our hearts and made us realize that even the smallest dog can fill an entire room with their quiet personality. Mia found her forever home and just the right person to cuddle with at the end of the day!
