“Let us never know what old age is. Let us know the happiness time brings, not count the years.”

He won’t be the first cat you see when you enter the KCAC cat room. In fact, you might not see him at all until you bend down and look into the opening of the nearest cat condo.
And there he is, inside staring out at the world with a face that has seen a life far different than the one he’s living now. With his green eyes that seem to hold all of the feline wisdom of the ages, this 10-year-old domestic shorthair named Winston is extremely laid back.
Content to find the perfect lap on which to spend his days, he mostly minds his own business, although he doesn’t mind being around other cats.
With winter just around the corner, Winston will make the perfect lap warmer while keeping you company during the dark snowy days to come!
Congratulations to Arnie, the Pit Bull puppy that loves everyone!
His new family is ready and prepared to spend the time teaching him the ways of the world. His days will be filled with long runs, warm naps and lots of love. We’re so happy for you, Arnie!
