“A cat can be trusted to purr when she is pleased, which is more than can be said for human beings.”
– William Ralph Inge

The fairy tale Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs has endured in some form or other for centuries, attracting children from around the world to the story of the beautiful Snow White and her band of seven dwarfs. The leader of the hardworking little miners is, of course, Doc, who because of his compassion and big heart, convinces Grumpy to accept the lovely intruder and welcome her as a guest in the dwarfs’ home.
When KCAC received a 7-month-old black and brown tiger domestic shorthair as an owner surrender, it was obvious as to why he was named after the wise and kind dwarf.
Doc has the sweetest disposition. He’s definitely an attention hog and enjoys following his people around wherever they might go to check out what they’re doing.
How much attention is enough? Doc has no limits as long as there is a lot of cuddling involved. He might even keep up his end of the conversation as he attempts to help his owner plan their day.
Not only is Doc a people cat, he’s also a feline that enjoys the company of other cats, as well. If you’re looking for the ideal host for your home and family, then Doc is the purrrfect cat for you.
Congratulations to sweet Molly, a 2-year-old female pit bull that came into KCAC as a stray. She found her new forever home last week. It was hard to tell who was more excited — Molly or her family members. Stray no more, Molly, you’re finally home.
