“There are few things in life more heartwarming than to be welcomed by a cat.”
– Tay von Hohoff, American literary editor for To Kill A Mockingbird
- KCAC’s Adorable, Adoptable Pet of the Week is written by Tecla Metzel of Kane County Animal Control.
Have you met Saffron?
She’s the last of KCAC’s orange kittens, and just like the spice she is named after emits a sweet personality for a kitten so young.
She was owner-surrendered by the same family that brought us Ginger due to too many cats in the home. A little shy at first meeting, this 4-month-old Domestic Shorthair warms up to new people after an initial introduction.
Sit on the floor with her and Ginger and pretty soon, you’ve become the “Kitten Whisperer” as they scurry over you and around you all the while chasing each other. When they find a toy to bat around the room, you’ve now become the obstacle to run over and then leave behind.
When Saffron’s frolicking has caught up to her, she’s more than happy to just sleep on your lap and wait for her dinner.
Saffron is not a kitten that just disappears and you never see her again. Once she feels comfortable with you and her new surroundings, she will be the first one you see when you come home and the last one you see when you leave.
She’s an involved kitten with a Type A personality, so what you’re making for dinner and, “Why are you cleaning on a Saturday?” will be her business. She’ll sit on your lap while you watch television and may even want to choose the channels.
Are you ready for a best friend for the rest of her life?
