“It is impossible to keep a straight face in the presence of one or more kittens.”

Should we say it one more time for the record books?
Kittens are cute!
They make you laugh, even when you don’t want to. Little balls of fur that run past your feet and trip you up. They pop out of nowhere, sometimes the smallest of niches, to land on your shoulder and give a little purr in your ear.
Their pin-like claws dig into your pant leg as they attempt to make the long climb up to your arms for that quick cuddle. Then, it’s a push and a squiggle and a “let me down now” gyration as they work their way out of your arms to fly down to the ground.
Yep, there’s no doubt about it, kittens are just adorable.
And Kane County Animal Control has two very cute and adorable kittens up for adoption. Klaus is 3-month-old brown domestic shorthair that was found as a stray along with his brother Ben in Sugar Grove.
Klaus is seemingly the perfect kitten. He enjoys cuddling and getting held and petted, but he also makes the most of his day by running around, chasing his brother and using all of his energy to get into absolutely everything.
Klaus would like a home where he has the ability to explore, have fun and then, find his favorite spot on the couch to reenergize. Maybe that favorite spot is even a family member’s lap.
So, are you ready to bring home a little bundle of cuteness?
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.
