As we slowly begin to reemerge from our homes to tentatively venture back into the world again, masked and ready to breathe in the fresh air of fall, we realize that “we’re not in Kansas anymore, Toto.”
The world has changed since we began our hibernation in March. Six feet away is the get-together norm while masks and gloves are the new fashion statements for 2020.
Our homes are still the safest places to be when not running errands. We’ve turned them into schools, workshops, and virtual everything else.
If your home has seemed a little vacant, a little hollow, and a little too clean lately, then maybe you need a couple of four-pawed felines to fill up the emptiness. I mean really, how many Netflix, Disney, Hulu streaming movies can one watch, anyway?
Kane County Animal Control has two, 2-year-old male felines that need to get adopted together. Their names are Percy and Buzz and they spend their days looking for someone to cuddle with besides each other.
Percy is an orange tabby Domestic Shorthair while Buzz is a gray and white Domestic Shorthair. Both are very laid-back kind of dudes that enjoy just laying around and snuggling up to each other. Getting them engaged to play with toys would definitely be a way to fill up a day.
Both boys are microchipped and ready to go home!
Call KCAC for an appointment to see these incredibly sweet, cuddly boys who will fill your home with love.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 virus situation, KCAC is asking any potential adopters to call ahead and make an appointment to visit with Percy and Buzz or any one of KCAC’s adoptable animals.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but we want to continue to remain vigilant in keeping our employees and county animals as healthy as possible.
