Valentine Gift Ideas


Cat of the Month

HART’s February Cat of the Month is Bandit.   Bandit is a beautiful fourteen year old gray and white tuxedo cat.  She is a calm, quiet and loving girl who enjoys head scratches and napping in the sunshine.


Bandit has been waiting for her forever family to show up for a long time.  She needs a home where she can be fed a special diet, and given insulin shots twice daily to manage her diabetes.  That may sound challenging…but Bandit will calmly sit and wait for her shots – in exchange for a little extra wet food.  We know Bandit’s “Forever Home” is out there, and we invite you to visit HART and meet this wonderful senior cat.


The adoption fee for Bandit will be waived during the month of February!  If you think you could be Bandit's "Valentine", please visit  Bandit at HART soon.  She looks forward to meeting you.
