Four months ago, Zorro came to the Pennsylvania SPCA in search of a better life. Gillian Coacher, director of public relations for the Pennsylvania SPCA, told Love Meow.

‘Unfortunately, she was unable to find anyone who wanted to take the kitten and decided it would be best to bring it to us and find a foster home for it.

They found blood in the kitten’s urine and knew it needed immediate medical attention. The veterinary team discovered that it was a bladder stone.

Zorro underwent surgery to remove the stone. While Zorro recuperated in the recovery room, the staff soon realized what made him so special.

Gillian told Love Meow, “He was so special. When they cleaned his cage, he would hug them and stay there, eventually patting their heads, purring, and sometimes even kissing their faces.”

He hugs everyone he meets. He wraps his arms around his human friends and hangs on for dear life.

Everyone fell in love with this affectionate tuxedo dog who gives endless hugs and kisses. This affectionate little guy purred and snuggled in their arms and it became the best part of their day.

Kristen Nau, a veterinarian at the PSPCA, noticed that whenever she was working at her desk, she had a feline assistant in her arms. Zorro would snuggle up next to her and stay for hours at a time while she worked.

‘This cat cuddles like a baby. He would sit and snuggle with you for hours while you worked,” Christine said.

When Zorro was brought to the adoption table, the staff put a note on his cage that read, “He loves to cuddle!” They put a note on his cage that read, “He loves to cuddle!
