It doesn’t take long for Gouda, a 1-year-old, spayed, brown, black and white domestic medium-haired tabby to warm up to whoever is in the room.


She may come across as a little shy in the beginning, but all she really wants is for someone to notice her and give her the attention she craves.

Owner-surrendered along with her sister Brie, Gouda started her life in the KCAC shelter as a very tiny kitten. Adopted along with her sister, the two girls were brought back after their adoptive family could no longer care for them.

A cuddly little girl that loves sitting in laps and getting petted, Gouda is looking for a family that will take the time to brush her beautiful medium-length hair on a regular basis.

Are you up to the challenge?

KCAC Updates


Congratulations to Kenny, a male, black domestic longhaired 9-month old kitten. He must have watched a few YouTube cat videos on how to impress potential adopters within the first 60 seconds after meeting them.

We’re so happy for you, Kenny!
