Cat Who Wears Her Heart On Her Chest Finally Finds A Home


It’s hard not to love a cat who dons a furry heart-shaped mark on her chest.

But for a long time, when people would visit the cats at the Converse Animal Shelter (CASI) in Converse, Texas, “big-hearted” Muffy would duck in her cage. Because the kitty was so shy, she was overlooked by adopters for most of her two-year life.


But last week, she found her soulmate.

When Muffy’s forever mom walked into the shelter, it was love at first sight!


“[Muffy] was shy for sure, [but] with her adoptive mommy, she showed affection and trust immediately,” January Dugan, an animal control officer and temporary CASI volunteer, told iHeartCats.

Muffy went home with her new best friend this morning! Thank you everybody for sharing her story. We still have many…

CASI wants to remind us that are plenty of other beautiful shelter animals that need love.

Special thanks to January Dugan for sharing her pictures of Muffy!
