Kane County Animal Control Pet of the Week - Meet Krampus

KCAC's Adorable, Adoptable Pet of the Week is written by Tecla Metzel of Kane County Animal Control. 2/12/2024 5:00AM

She was found as a stray, a stray with a blue collar that had a little bell on the end of it.

How frustrating it is to wait and hope that maybe this time an owner will show up and take their cat home. How sad for the cat when no one shows up after days and days of waiting for someone to come and take her home.     Krampus 3.jpg

And then the Girl Scout troop comes to KCAC for an educational program. They're curious, interested, wanting to make a difference in the world, and making a difference in the world. The warden picks Krampus, a 1-year-old, black and white, spayed female Domestic Longhair to become one of the show-and-tell animals for the troop.

She's a hit, an absolute hit with the girls!

Actually, she showed her princess potential as she clearly enjoyed all of the cuddles and pets she received, even laying down on the floor and allowing the young ladies to crowd around her to get in all of the pets.

Plain and simple, Krampus is up for adoption. She will do well in a home because after her day with the Girl Scouts, we know she loves getting petted and all the attention she can handle. We also know she seems to like other cats because she spends her days in the KCAC cat room with other felines.

She's sweet, cuddly and every bit a down-to-earth princess that lives up to her name of the folkloric figure that brings children gifts in December. Krampus' gifts are more on the emotional support side, such as comfort, fun, affection and love. Gifts that don't erase with time.

Gifts that are as timeless as she is.
