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

It’s hard to remember during these heated days of summer how long the cold gray days of this past winter lasted, sitting 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.
That 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 had to feel as though finding a forever family would never happen, as though the depressing gray days 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.
Now with the summer months waning, Cadbury’s little nose is stuck on overdrive to find that perfect family willing to give him all the love, safety and security he lost so long ago.
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. Sweet, but a little shy at times, it might take a little time for him to warm up to his new people. After the first pet, however, he purrs his approval and settles in for more.
Cadbury doesn’t mind having other cats around, although he would probably do better in a household more on the quiet and easy-going side — with plenty of windows, please!
As he waits for his new people to adopt him, Cadbury begins his celebration of the sunshine of summer and prepares to live a life in the glowing light of family.
