“A kitten is chiefly remarkable for rushing about like mad at nothing whatever, and generally stopping before it gets there.”
– Agnes Repplier, American essayist

Kittens, kittens and more kittens!
KCAC definitely has kittens up for adoption, all from the same litter!
Mama Serena has done her job well preparing her little darlings for a brave new world. She’s finally at a point in her own young life where she can let go of her responsibilities as a mother and begin the second act of her life.
So, it is with great pride and, maybe even a bit of wonder on our part that we begin the introduction of Serena’s children to you, dear reader.
First one out of the corral is Dopey Doo! He’s an orange Domestic shorthair that’s about 3-months-old. He was brought to the shelter along with his four siblings.
Just like the rest of his brood, Doo loves to play! Give him a ball, a feather, a ball of yarn or a real cat toy, and he is all about it! He can entertain himself for hours. But be careful, don’t walk too close or he’ll jump onto your shoulders to hitch a ride around the room, then jump off onto the floor and run. He thinks he’s being sneaky.
Who needs Netflix when Dopey Doo is around!
After a long day of play, he’s ready for a nice nap. If you’re lucky, he’ll even sleep on your lap, all cuddled up. Keeping him tired might be your biggest challenge, but living with the Doo-meister will never be boring!
Call Ahead For an Appointment!
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 virus situation, KCAC is asking any potential adopters to call ahead and make an appointment to visit any of KCAC’s adoptable animals.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. However, we want to continue to remain vigilant in keeping our employees and county animals as healthy as possible.
