“Cats never strike a pose that isn’t photogenic.”

- KCAC’s Adorable, Adoptable Pet of the Week is written by Tecla Metzel of Kane County Animal Control.
Orange is the new color of kittens at KCAC!
We have three orange kittens available for adoption, all under 5-months-old. That’s young enough for their new parents to really enjoy their antics and old enough for them to learn the ins and outs of a new home, settle in and meld with the family.
First on the list is Cheese, a tiny little 3-month-old baby kitten that thinks she’s so much older than she is. She looks at you with eyes that suggest she’s been here before which is probably why she thinks you don’t know what you’re talking about when you calmly pull her from the bookshelf.
“I know how to climb stuff, ya know,” she seems to say. Yes, you do, big little kitty. Yes, you do.
She was found along with her sister, Crackers, hiding under someone’s porch, trying to stay warm, not knowing where their next meal was coming from. No mother in sight, no other siblings around.
That’s in the past, though, because as Cheese has grown comfortable in her surroundings, she has learned it’s ok to be who she is — a kitten of extraordinary kitten-ish antics with a face that makes people go, “Awwww!”
Cheese is finally ready for her close-up and her fur-ever home. Are you ready for her?
We are so happy to announce that Bubbles, the septuagenarian cat, found her fur-ever home and is contentedly lying on someone’s lap as we speak.
We will miss you Bubbles! You brightened up every day for everyone here at KCAC! You are the quintessence of living life in the moment!
