POW! Diving Into Shredded Newspaper, Pouncing on Untied Shoelaces, Every Bit of Mira Screams, ‘Kitten!’

A kitten is the most irresistible comedian in the world.”

  • KCAC’s Adorable, Adoptable Pet of the Week is written by Tecla Metzel of Kane County Animal Control.

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the cutest kitten of them all?

The answer is … well, it’s a toss-up among all four of Serena’s babies brought to KCAC’s shelter back in May along with their momma.

Dopey Doo has already been introduced to the world, so now it’s Princess Mira’s turn to get pushed in front of the adoption line.

Mira is a spayed female, brown and black Domestic shorthair that’s about 4-months-old. Every bit of her actions and reactions scream “Kitten!”

She loves to play, everything inspires her to pounce on it, bat at it or chase it around the room. Shredded newspaper is the best stuff to dive into and then splash around so there’s an absolute mess on the floor. If your shoelace happens to be untied, she will make chasing your shoe a game until you decide to tie it again.

Of course, playing hard requires a nice long nap, maybe even on someone’s lap. Remember, she’s growing into the purr-fect princess and a princess should never be disturbed during her beauty sleep!

Afterward, she’s ready for another bout of playtime, some food and eventually some kitten-cuddling on the couch.

Perhaps the best question would be, “How have you lived without Mira in your life up until now?”
