Welcome to another week of KC cats. All of these guys and gals are available for adoption right now and are eager to find a new home. You can use the links to learn more about them, and if they sound like a good fit, go ahead and take those first steps to bringing them home. The shelters are all over town from Olathe to Raytown to Parkville so no matter where you live in the Kansas City area, there are plenty of conveniently located kitties.
First up from Meowy Matchmakers, we have Not Today, who is a regular church lady. Although at four months, she's not old enough to get the Saturday Night Live reference, she is still a preachy little girl. She loves to talk and sing, and although it is hard to make sense of the meows, one must assume she is full of good, righteous advice.
She seems to like people more than houseplants--she licks people but bites plants. Not sure if she thinks that plants are in the league with the devil, but she's certainly got something against them. She's also full of energy, so you'll probably want to have other pets in the house she can play with or have the time and energy to play a lot with her yourself.
So if you're looking for a sweet church-going kitty and don't have a house full of poisonous plants, Not Today might be the girl for you. You can learn more about her here.
Next, from the Friends of Parkville Shelter is Ella, who just had her third birthday a couple of weeks ago. Happy Birthday Ella!
Ella is a white and black beauty who, with a deep distaste for other cats, would be best in a home without other pets. Being at the shelter, surrounded by her ilk, stressed her out so much that she had to move into a foster home until she could find a permanent residence. Maybe your place?
She's a sweet, affectionate girl who enjoys lap time and pets. She's also playful and loves to romp around the house and swat at feather toys. She might be shy at first, but once she comes around, you'll have a happy, charming cat for life.
Learn more about Ella by filling out a pre-adoption form here, and the Friends of Parkville will be in touch. They'll answer any questions you might have and set up a meet and greet if you're interested. You can also check out a video of Ella on her PetFinder page. It is always fun to see the cats in action, and you have to give it up for her foster mom's cat décor.
Khabibi and Berti
Next up is a bonded pair of four-year-old tortoiseshell sisters, named Khabibi and Berti, two sweet cats who had to be given up to adoption after they lost their caretaker. They are a bonded pair and best of friends so will need to be adopted together. Don't let that discourage you. The only thing better than one cat is two cats.
As sisters, they may look a bit alike, but they have very different personalities. Khabibi is full of energy and quite a character where Berti is more subdued and laid back. Khabibi's favorite thing to do is playing, where Berti is more into snuggling, although both enjoy each.

Next, from Cats Pawjamas, we have Franny, who lends some truth to the stereotypes about wild and mischievous redheads. She's just beaming with little kitten energy. She's very affectionate, playful, and loves chasing her tail and pouncing on imaginary mice. She's also a notorious nose nibbler, but you won't mind because she's so cute.
She is the dominant personality in her litter, an alpha female, so if you want a more chill kitten, Cats Pawjamas can hook you up with one of her brothers (or an older cat). Still, if you want a cat that's charismatic and full of personality, get off your fanny and adopt Franny. You can learn more about her here.
Here's another picture of Franny, because kittens:
Last, but not least, we have Sissy, from Great Plains SPCA. Sissy provides us a nice calm respite from Fanny's fury. She enjoys playing with wand toys and mice, but she's just at home sitting by your side or staring out the window. If you're looking for a cat to relax with, Sissy may be the one for you. Like Ella, above, she will likely be shy at first, but she'll warm up to you with some patience and kindness. Once you're on her good side, you'll have a friend for life.
You can learn more about Sissy here.
