A volunteer writes: This scrumptious little Siamese-looking beauty, with her velvety grey and just a whisper of smokey beige coat, was super friendly, and would love to find her forever and ever home. She warmed up to me in barely a minute with snuggly head butts and adorable flop overs. Though surrendered by her owner who unfortunately also became homeless, there''s no doubt they treated her with lots of love. She was surrendered along with her beautiful and fluffy sidekick sister Beatrice. Hero is a gentle little lady who would love a new blanket filled home.

Another volunteer writes: Pretty Hero came in with her just as pretty sister Beatrice A1093142. I think the bustle and noise of the Center are pretty overwhelming for her, she was pretty shy when I first met her. Her previous owner had said she was usually very friendly and outgoing with new people. After a little while though, she let me pet her and definitely enjoyed it. Her previous owner said she and her sister were very friendly with each other, and loved to cuddle and play together. She lived with two young children whom she was gentle with, and a medium-sized dog would visit sometimes. Hero wasn''t too thrilled about that, but a girl is entitled to her preferences. She also had lived with a bunny for a few weeks, whom she mostly left alone but would occasionally play gently with. I don''t know, Hero, that''s quite the resume! If you are looking for a new family member, maybe Hero is the right girl for you?
