Saphire is a gem!! Born in 2014, this striking tuxedo cat looks like she has white socks on her paws! Her whiskers are super long and white and they stand out against her beautiful black face. Heartland rescued Saphire from Chicago Animal Care and Control. When she first arrived, Saphire just wanted snuggles. Now that she is more comfortable at Heartland we are seeing her true personality. Saphire is very outgoing and enjoys hanging out with the volunteers and greeting visitors. She absolutely loves when we pet her. Saphire quickly discovered the wildlife on the other side of the patio doors and can spend hours watching the activity. She is okay with other cats as long as they stay out of her way.
