Pet of the Week - Bashful

Pet of the Week is written by Tecla Metzel of Kane County Animal Control 1/4/2023 12:00PM

He’s a handsome 4-month-old kitten among a litter of beautiful 4-month-old kittens, all brown and black striped Domestic Shorthairs.  On a scale of 1 – 10, the cuteness factor is definitely a 12.

Bashful is his name and he’s living his best life as a spirited kitten. And there’s definitely no disputing how handsome he is with dark striping against a cream background.

Bashful is no slouch when it comes to his physique, either. Beautiful yellowish eyes that look at the world in wide-eyed wonder. He might be a little shy at first meeting anyone new, but in no time he’s attempting to get their attention with little vocal “mews” and some tiny paw touches. He gets along very well with his brother and sisters, chasing them, piling on top of them and generally perfecting his kitten attitude.

Bashful will make a great addition to any family that enjoys the free, unabashed playfulness of a kitten! How to Adopt For more information regarding Kane County Animal Control’s adoptable animals and for an adoption application, please go to
