- KCAC’s Adorable, Adoptable Pet of the Week is written by Tecla Metzel of Kane County Animal Control.
She’s got the sweetest face imaginable with a personality to match. Her name is Agnes and she was surrendered to KCAC by her owners after they could no longer take care of her.
Although a little on the plump side, this 6-year-old domestic shorthair is a master at getting all the love and attention she can handle. It’s almost as though she read the feline version of “How to Win Friends and Influence People.”
Cuddling with a capital C is high on her alphabet list of what she would want in a new family, but in typical cat fashion, only if she initiates it first. Throw in a plenty of loving with a little of bit of playing and you’ve got a very satisfied feline.
If you’re looking for a very sweet, loving cat to spend your days with, then Agnes is the perfect choice.
Kiwi, the talky Quaker parrot, found his forever home and is happily letting the world know his opinion on everything. Congratulations, Kiwi! Here’s hoping you have a lifetime of laughter and plenty of dance music!
Ruby, the shy 1-1/2-year-old Rottweiler who just wanted to be hugged, found her forever family with a brother already waiting for her. Congratulations, Ruby!
