“A kitten is the delight of a household. All day long a comedy is played out by an incomparable actor.”
– Champfleury, French art critic and novelist
- KCAC’s Adorable, Adoptable Pet of the Week is written by Tecla Metzel of Kane County Animal Control.
He arrived at Kane County Animal Control with his other siblings and his very attentive, loving mother.
Because of her care and nurturing, Chili, a 4-month-old gray tiger Domestic Shorthair, has evolved into a perfect little kitten with the energy and playfulness level of Mardi Gras.
Chili is all kitten with the one sole purpose of enjoying every minute of every day! He loves to play — and play, and play, and play! Hide and seek, find the toy, get the feather dangling on the fishing pole, run and run and run are all games Chili knows very well. Every day becomes a kitten-Olympics as Chili tries to out-do his best efforts from the day before.
Eventually, when he’s tired (oh, please, let him get tired!) he will settle down for a nice little nap, maybe even on someone’s lap.
If you need a bright spot in your life and are willing to take on a lifetime commitment to care and nurture a young, sometimes cuddly, most times lively kitten, then open your home and your heart and adopt Chili!
