“I had been told that the training procedure with cats was difficult. It’s not. Mine had me trained in two days.”

- KCAC’s Adorable, Adoptable Pet of the Week is written by Tecla Metzel of Kane County Animal Control. Hopper’s photo courtesy of Lorena Page Photography.
She has the sweetest, most kitten-like face you will ever see on a small adult feline as she stares at you with an innocent look that draws you into her realm.
Her name is Sammie and she is an absolutely beautiful Calico cat! An owner-surrender that just turned 15 while a resident at KCAC, she loves as much attention as she can possibly get. Her name fits her because it denotes a lack of formality and an openness while still maintaining the gracefulness of the feline. Calling her Samantha would give her a signature larger than she is and expectations she might not care to meet.
Tiny and shy, it might take a little while for her to warm up to someone, but once she feels she’s among friends, she’ll have no trouble resting in their lap for the rest of the evening while she enjoys the security of once again having a family.
Congratulations to Hopper, the cat most likely to join a successful PR firm in Chicago. Mr. Social found his forever home last week, and we at KCAC are so happy for him! He’ll be blogging before the New Year!
