“Do I believe in love at first sight? Absolutely. I fall in love with every cat I see.”
– Cat Lover Quotes
- KCAC’s Adorable, Adoptable Pet of the Week is written by Tecla Metzel of Kane County Animal Control. Additional photos by Lorena Page Photography.
A burst of black and white runs through the KCAC office and skids toward a small red kitten ball. Her feline debut into the room gives the on-looker a sense that this kitten knows its purpose.
Her name is Elle, but you can call her “L” for short.
She’s all of 9-months-old, found as a stray, too cute to wander the streets of Wayne for all of her days.
Her markings suggest the artist was influenced by the black and white pattern of the Holstein cow, but Elle is all feline, ready and able to jump into your lap for long periods of snuggle-time. As she begins her hug, she gradually makes her way curled around your neck as she purrs into your ear.
If she can find her way onto the back of your shoulders and neck, her purrs become more intense as she rubs her head against your ear.
Elle is super sweet and will beg for attention from anyone and everyone in the room for that extra cuddle, that soft scratching behind the ears, and that hug and snuggle.
And to make it even easier for you to fall in love with her, she’ll hug you back!
Congratulations to Mimi, our chatty former resident of the cat room. We are sure she’s happily holding up her end of the conversation in her new forever home with her absolutely fantastic pet parents! Way to keep the dialogue going, Mimi!
