Meet Hera

Hera is a total stunner. This petite and gorgeous brown tabby with adorable oversized ears was rescued in a Bronx playground.

Although Hera needs time and patience to feel comfortable (she has an incredible side-eye), she is gentle while she adjusts. After a few weeks in her foster home, she had progressed from only exploring a night to hanging out with humans during the day requesting pets. She spent a couple weeks experimenting with her meow (testing all different tones and volumes), settling on a very cute squeaky yowl which she sometimes uses to answer passing sirens. She loves chicken churu treats and wet food smooshed up with a little warm water, and she eats a lot and heartily. Her litter box habits are impeccable.

Hera now purrs when you pet her, as long as you approach her gently and let her smell your hand first. Hera would be happiest in a quiet home with adults and older children only, as loud sounds and quick movements will send her diving for an enclosed space.

She was rescued with other cats, but they didn't seem to be very fond of each other -- we think that Hera would do well as a single cat or with another calm companion cat. Whoever adopts Hera will have the pleasure of helping this sweet-tempered girl blossom into a more confident cat.
