POW! Gorgeous, Calico Tina Is Full of Wonder and Wisdom

Her markings are distinct as she stares at you with a little bit of wonder mixed with a lot of the wisdom of the ages. A stripe of black runs down her nose bookended by two emerald green eyes that bore into your soul and you begin to feel that you have met royalty.


Her first day in KCAC’s cat room was spent sitting on a high perch overseeing the other felines. Her name is Tina and she is KCAC’s 1-year-old rather petite Calico cat. Unsure of her new surroundings, she’s spending her time getting the lay of the land and watching the other felines.

Tina enjoys lots of petting. She’ll even stretch her neck as far as she can so she can get a good scratching.

She will definitely need to rule the roost in her forever family’s home, so it’s probably best if there aren’t other cats to get in the way, at least until she gets acclimated to her new empire.

KCAC Update

It’s a small world after all, Oliver, and there’s a perfect home for you. Congratulations to little Oliver, the tiny Yorkshire terrier who found his fur-ever family with a built-in sister!


Bolt, a 1-year-old Morkie, went home the same day he went up for adoption! Who could resist that face! Congratulations, Bolt!

KCAC’s 1-year-old Siberian husky, Shay, who totally believes that everyone wants to play with her, finally had the perfect family adopt her who is willing to spend their days playing with her! Who knew? We are so happy for you, Shay!
