He’s a little silly looking, really.
His one ear points out like it’s directing traffic while his left ear is down close to his head, more than likely a remnant of living life as a stray and wandering the streets of St. Charles.
His name is Bosco and his former life hasn’t stopped him from enjoying the warmth and safety of living in the cat room at Kane County Animal Control awaiting his time to be adopted.
Bosco is a very sweet 7-year-old orange tabby domestic shorthair that came to us in January. At some point in his early life, someone took care of him and nurtured him because he is extremely gentle and friendly. Finding an open lap is his daily quest. Once found, he is in no rush to leave.
He does well around other cats, but keeps to himself a great deal, perhaps hoping that the next lap he winds up on is the one that takes him to his forever home.
Congratulations to Luna, the small, divine domesticated rabbit with the sweet, loving personality finally was adopted! We are so happy for her.
