Love at first touch ...

Hermes is an absolutely adorable long-haired orange tabby, who falls in love easily. A little shy at first, once you pet his soft fur, he'll be your best friend forever. Hermes loves to be touched and welcomes belly rubs. He's also a playful youngster, who can't resist catnip or laser light toys. And he likes other cats, too.

Born in 2011, Hermes was found as a stray. His back end is paralyzed, so the poor kitty has to have his bladder expressed and has no control over when or where he goes. But his special needs don't dampen his strong spirit or stop him from being a very friendly, sweet boy.

Hermes would be so grateful for a home and someone special to love. Could you give him the chance to be your beloved kitty?
