POW! Bonnie Is The Perfect Kitty To Bring Home For The New Year!

I don’t think it is so much the actual bath that most cats dislike; I think it’s the fact that they have to spend a good part of the day putting their hair back in place.

During the early 1930’s, Bonnie and Clyde were considered public enemy No. 1, as they cut a swath through the Central United States robbing banks, gas stations and small mom-and-pop stores.


KCAC’s two feline strays that came into the facility a few weeks ago are nothing like their namesakes. Bonnie is a diminutive 1-year-old brown striped Domestic shorthair. The kerchief of white hangs around her neck and continues all the way down toward her four little white paws. Her green, soft eyes could melt any strong person’s heart as she connects with you in an ethereal way.

She’s extremely friendly and ready to play whenever you might be available. Bonnie doesn’t hold anything back either, as she will be more than happy to let you know what she needs, even holding her own during a conversation.

If you have other cats, Bonnie will soon become the one they look to spend time with, although she definitely likes Clyde the best.

You’ll never feel lonely when Bonnie is in the house! Social, sweet and loving, Bonnie is the perfect kitty to bring home for the New Year!

KCAC Updates


Congratulations to Belle, our orange kitten that spent most of her beginning months of life in the shelter here at KCAC. We knew someone would find Belle absolutely too good to be true and take her home.

She finally found her forever home a few days before Christmas! We hope all the halls of your home are decked out with not only boughs of holly, but great cat treats and toys for the New Year!

Happy New Year, Belle!

And Happy New Year to all the shelter animals everywhere. Hopefully, 2020 is your year to shine!
