POW! Yuma Is Named After The Sunniest City in The World

“I regard cats as one of the great joys in the world. I see them as a gift of highest order.”

He’s a large white and brown domestic shorthair with one of the sweetest personalities this side of the Rio Grande, pardner!


His name is Yuma and he is an 8-year-old feline that weighs a very svelte 20 pounds. An owner-surrender along with his sister, Mesa, Yuma is looking for his forever home, where he can get as many hugs, kisses and petting sessions as possible. He’ll take the larger couch for himself, thank you, very much.

Named after the sunniest city in the world, Yuma loves his belly rubbed, enjoys sunning himself and is ready for his close-up, Mr. DeMille.

He’s seems fine with other cats, pretty much stays to himself, but is all about greeting people with a head butt and a “hello.”

You can make this handsome, warm and affectionate young gentleman very happy by giving him his second and, hopefully, final forever home.

KCAC Updates


Congratulations to Brayden, our former resident cool cat and bad boy feline that enjoys being an only cat so he can explore his surroundings.

He finally found the one family that was willing to allow him to spend his days soaking up all the affection and peacefulness he can handle.


It was also talkie Mickey’s turn to find his forever home and we’re sure he’s filling them in on all the days he spent at the shelter and “dishing” on all the other cats in the KCAC cat room.

Don’t tell all the secrets, Mickey!
