They could have spent their lives happily living together forever. Sitting on their owner’s lap, snuggling all day, exploring at night and just overall living the life of a spoiled cat seemed to be the path forward for both of them.
Then something happened.
They were uprooted from their safe and secure domain and taken to Kane County Animal Control’s shelter due to their owner’s inability to take care of them. Life happens, and if plans aren’t made and promises aren’t kept, then the only recourse is to find a shelter that will hopefully adopt them out together.
So, at just 12 years old, Snoopy, a neutered black and white domestic shorthair, and Woodstock, a neutered gray domestic shorthair, found themselves in a strange environment. There were plenty of people to snuggle with and lots of areas to hide under and in, but it wasn’t home. It wasn’t the way it was.
And that’s why the boys are looking for a nice place to live out their latter years together. They’re not asking for much. Their only request is that there are new laps to cuddle and snuggle on.
They both love people and enjoy getting scratched and petted. They may even extricate a purr or two for whoever is lucky enough to give them their petting session every day.
If you need to fill your home with the pitter-patter of eight little cat paws running through your home this winter, then call Kane County Animal Control and make an appointment to visit with Snoopy and Woodstock.
In return, they will give you a lifetime of 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.
