“The way to get on with a cat is to treat it as an equal — or even better, as the superior it knows itself to be.”
– Elizabeth Peters, American mystery writer
- KCAC’s Adorable, Adoptable Pet of the Week is written by Tecla Metzel of Kane County Animal Control.
“In the name of Betty White and all that is safe and warm and loving for all of the domestic animals throughout the world, I dub thee Sir Oliver, royal 4-year-old orange and white Domestic Shorthair, cat of the ages!”
“Go forth from wandering the streets of fear to the womb with a view of Kane County Animal Control’s shelter into a new, fur-ever home. The gods of all strays made sure you were watched over and discovered by a kind citizen who took it upon themselves to find you a safe haven. Because of this mysterious intervention, the villagers believe you to hold super powers brought on by the gods.
“Your low-key personality draws people to you, which makes it much easier to snuggle and get the love you so richly deserve.
“As you find your people, you may acknowledge other cats within the home. My fervent wish is that you tolerate them with subtle disregard and find your own niche among the people.
“If the need arises, you may become the cat-alyst for every human to bestow love and caring to all animals of the storm and, thus, restore order to the universe.
“You are the hope of the future, Sir Oliver! Go forth and use your special powers to cuddle and explore your new environment.
“These decrees are held by the mighty gods of Shel-Ter and will, from now on, be the law of the land.”
