“Cats sleep anywhere, any table, any chair, top of piano, window-ledge, in the middle, on the edge.”
– Eleanor Farjeon, English children’s literature author

His namesake is that of Kylo Ren, the dark lord from the Star Wars blockbuster first introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The staff just calls him Kylo, and other than they both happen to wear black, the similarities between the fictional character who lives on the dark side and KCAC’s 2-year-old male domestic shorthair ends there.
Kylo is an 11-pound big baby boy with the most beautiful emerald green eyes ever placed in a feline. His black fur gives him a sleek panther look although he’s more of a play baby that enjoys getting picked up and hugged. He even gives hugs, and will wrap himself around your neck and purr gently into your ear.
He certainly isn’t the strong silent type, either, because he is extremely talkative and loves having an audience. In fact, if you don’t feel like saying anything, he’s perfectly willing to hold up both ends of the conversation.
Are you ready to bring this sweet boy into the light for the New Year?
Congratulations to Pumpkin, the grand dame of the cat room who, at 15-years-old, found her forever home. We are so happy for you, Pumpkin! Live long and prosper!
