Nero the Social Cat is Ready for a Forever Home

Posted in Fundraising

Adopt me!

Nero – 3 year old male – at Hermitage since 11/19/17

Nero is already a success story! He came to Hermitage as a stray from the University of Arizona in November 2017. Shy and not sure of what to make of his new surroundings, Nero would spend much of his time on the catwalks keeping out of reach of visitors to the General Population Room. In fact, he was fairly difficult for the staff to handle. With patience and dedication, the staff and volunteers worked with Nero to acclimate him to people. Slowly, but surely, Nero started to come out of his shell.

He is now one of the most social kitties in the General Population Room. Nero can often be found at the front waiting to meet new people and get some loving from old friends. When not greeting people at the General Population entrance, Nero is likely to be found sunning himself on the catio, enjoying a good catnap in the afternoon sun. Nero has shown us what a truly gentle soul he is and we know he will make a loving addition to any family.
