POW! ‘Lofty’ Longhair Sid Is More Than Just a Cat

Give me an ‘S’!
Give me an ‘I’!
Give me a ‘D’!
What’s it spell?

Why, Sid, of course!

And who is Sid? Just one of the most regal, black, domestic longhair male cats you’re ever going to meet. Brought to KCAC as a stray, he’s more than just a cat, as you will find out after spending only a little bit of time with him.

Stately attitude aside, Sid has a wonderful personality that he is willing to show off the minute you enter the room. No hiding from stranger-danger for him. He runs to greet you, flops down on the floor and expectantly waits for the petting session he yearns for.

He interacts well with other cats. In fact, he is perfectly willing to ignore them if he is able to spend more of his time on your lap getting all the attention he knows he deserves.

Sid is also a talky little man, willing to hold a conversation with his new forever family, as long as his demands for cuddle time are met.

Give a cheer for Sid! Let’s go! Let’s go! Let’s go home, Sid!
