“Having a bunch of cats around is good. If you’re feeling bad, you just look at the cats, you’ll feel better because they know that everything is just as it is.”
– Charles Bukowski, American author

She’s so cute, you can’t help but put your stressed-out life’s ups and downs on hold, let out that long overdue breath that’s been pent up inside of you for so long and allow yourself a moment to express an emotional, “Awww, she’s adorable!”
Her name is Rose, a 7-month-old calico, Domestic Shorthair that’s been at KCAC since Jan. 27. Brought in along with her sibling, Truffle, a tortie, from an eviction, Rose is all kitten.
There’s no counter too high or cubbyhole too small for her to explore along with her sister.
Inquisitive would be an understatement as she romps around the shelter discovering new places to hide so she can pop out at unsuspecting Truffle, jump on her and then scurry back under the cabinet or desk.
When her play-time clock has reached its end, she finds the tallest level on the cat tree in the cat room and snuggles down onto the soft blanket that’s been laid out for her, no doubt dreaming of what it might be, could be like to explore her forever home.
At the moment, no worries, only sleep. Life is what life is.
