Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Donut, happy birthday to you!
This gray and white domestic shorthair has come a long way to get to the adoption floor at KCAC. Owner-surrendered due to an eviction, Donut was brought in along with a dog from the same house. Donut was just a kitten when he was turned over to the KCAC shelter.
This sweet-natured kitty just turned 1-year-old in February and he desperately wants to find a forever home where he can explore the far reaches of the house, find a warm spot, preferably with a lot of sunlight, and settle down.
A kitten no more, Donut is still young enough to chase the feather at the end of the fishing pole, crawl into cubbyholes and cause as much cat-chaos as possible, although he has a very “chill” personality.
He’s looking for the right family to give him all of the care and loving he can handle.
