“If there is one spot of sun spilling onto the floor, a cat will find it and soak it up.”

The gray days sit over Kane County like a mother bird sits on her nest. Unmovable, seemingly a permanent fixture with no hint of spring, sun or warmth arriving in the near future.
This kind of weather doesn’t just affect humans, it also creates a pall over animals, as well. Sleeping dogs keep sleeping, and cats find the warmest part of the house to stretch out their bones made stiff by the cold, rainy days.
For Cadbury, a 5-year-old white and brown Domestic shorthair in need of a new home, it’s got to feel as though that will never happen, as though the depressing gray days have limited him, put a hold on his natural creative ways of getting someone to notice him.
He was an owner-surrender because his original owner had passed away and the family wasn’t in a position to take on another responsibility.
He’s got the cutest face with a little bunny-like nose that makes him stand out among the other cats in the cat room at KCAC. Sweet, but a little shy at times, it will take a little time for him to warm up to his new people. After the first pet, he purrs his approval and settles in for more.
Cadbury doesn’t mind having other cats around, and he would probably do best in a household more on the quiet and easy-going side with plenty of windows where he can revel in some of that sunshine that might eventually bring the dark corners of nature into the light, finally announcing it’s springtime in Kane County!
Congratulations to Donut, the 1-year-old gray and white Domestic shorthair that was part of a home eviction. He found his large forever family with an unlimited amount of love and cuddling.
The sweet-natured little man is sure to be the center of attention in his new household for the rest of his days!
