POW! Muggins Purrs With His Mouth Open And His Socks Don’t Match! – Kane County Connects

I have found it is surprisingly difficult to remain sad when a cat is doing its level best to sandpaper one’s cheeks.”
– RL Lafevers, American Children’s book author, Theodosia series

  • KCAC’s Adorable, Adoptable Pet of the Week is written by Tecla Metzel of Kane County Animal Control.

His little pink nose is perfectly placed between a black mask accentuated by a tail of black that sweeps under his chin. Large green eyes gaze up at you as he waits for a few pets and a snuggle or two.


His socks must have gotten mixed up in the dryer or otherwise, why would he only wear one white and one black sock? Maybe this 1-year-old neutered male Domestic Shorthair was in too much of a hurry to try to match everything.

One might describe this sweet cat as silly or a little goofy looking, but Muggin’s knows in his heart of hearts that he is a very special feline, even if he purrs with his mouth open. Say what you will about those that are different from everyone else, Muggins sees it as his strength from him and loves the attention of all his new people friends from him.

As you go about your daily chores, Muggins will follow you to help you any way he can. Do you need him to type a few letters? He’ll jump up on your keyboard and type away. Some of the words may not be purr-fect, but he will give it the old college try.

Muggins knows he’s a different kind of guy, so he would prefer not to have any other cats in the house. He’s very touchy about things like that.

When you come to visit Muggins, we’ll tell him he’s the one doing the adopting so he thinks he’s in control.

Then, get ready to snuggle!
