“Like all pure creatures, cats are practical.”
– William S. Burroughs, American writer
- KCAC’s Adorable, Adoptable Pet of the Week is written by Tecla Metzel of Kane County Animal Control.
Some felines envision themselves as a greeter, meeting everyone who visits them with a verbal replay of their day.
Ophelia has exactly that type of personality.
She is a 2-year-old black Domestic Shorthair that was found as a stray and brought to KCAC. She enjoys the company of people and has many human friends at the shelter that she updates every day on the various cat-room shenanigans. She has so much to share with you, it’s hard to get a word in edgewise.
Ophelia is very sweet. However, other cats can be a little scary for her, so her new parents should allow her to literally rule the roost and be the only 4-legged child at home.
In return, Ophelia will give you her friendship, her daily verbal updates and make sure you always know all the events of the day. You will never feel alone with Ophelia in the house!
