“You can’t own a cat. The best you can do is be partners.”

All you have to do is take one look at Anna, an 8-month-old black and white Domestic shorthair up for adoption at Kane County Animal Control, to know that she is not just any ordinary feline.
Her green eyes sparkle like emeralds in the sunlight, or maybe that’s the fire in her soul letting you know that she has seen too much of the world at her young age. Whatever she’s had to experience in her past life, she makes it very clear that she is still a kitten at heart.
Brought to KCAC as a stray, Anna absolutely loves people. If she could force humans to cuddle with her all day long, she would. It would be the one super power she would use over and over again.
However, as much as she loves people she is not the biggest fan of other cats, so getting her adopted into a home without other felines is the best situation for her.
If you’re looking for a cat to share your domicile that will give you years of cuddling and love, look no further than Anna. She is waiting for you to complete the partnership!
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.
