This shelter cat likes to hug everyone he meets and the best thing is that he doesn’t accept no for an answer.
Zorro is a very kind homeless cat, but when he was taken to a shelter in Philadelphia, he could barely tolerate being hit. But when the staff found out what was bothering him, it was a little whim that they made with everyone they know. Make lots of hugs.
Zorro joined the Pennsylvania SPCA four months ago for a chance to live better.
Gillian Kocher, Director of Public Relations at the SPCA, told Love Meow:
“He was fed by a good Samaritan for a while, and he was so kind that he tried to find him a permanent home. Unfortunately, he did not find anyone interested in adopting him and decided that it was better to take him to seek refuge.
Staff quickly noticed that the cat needed immediate medical attention because blood was found in its urine. The veterinarian discovered that he suffered from bladder stones, which is why the friendly feline refrained from being stroked due to the discomfort.
Zorro underwent surgery to remove the stones, and while he was healing in the recovery room, the staff quickly noticed something very special about him.
“It was during his convalescence at our refuge hospital that Zorro began to cuddle with veterinary technicians and nurses. When they cleaned his cage, he gave them a hug and stayed there, soon he started shaking his head and purring, sometimes he even kissed their faces. ”
Zorro offers hugs to everyone. Everyone fell in love with this affectionate feline which gives endless kisses and caresses.
Kristen Nau, an SPCA veterinarian, was constantly working with a feline assistant in her arms when she was at the office. Zorro curled up next to her and stayed for hours while working.
“This cat kisses you like a baby. He sits with his arms around you for hours while you work. His fur is so smooth and soft and has the best mustache. ”
When it was time to put Zorro on the adoption floor, the staff attached a note to his cage that said, “He likes to cuddle!”
“Zorro had bladder stones and will be on a urinary diet for life, but it’s a small price to pay for having the best cat in the world at home.”
Zorro spent a lot of time wandering the streets, looking for someone to love. Now he is safe, receives the best attention and is surrounded by people he wants to kiss all the time, and does not accept a no for an answer.
“No matter who you are, he doesn’t discriminate with his hugs.”
Finally, Zorro came home forever a few weeks ago and we wish him all the luck in the world to be loved, protected and to continue to receive many hugs.
