I'm Heart, a 1-year-old sweetheart.


Would you like your heart to be filled? My name is Heart, and I am here to steal your heart. Don't let my grumpy face fool you! I am the sweetest little kitten. I love getting brushed, getting pets, and playing with toys! You can even walk with me around like a baby and I will LOVE it. I meow for attention and will follow you around until you give it to me. I may be missing an eye but that doesn't slow me down. I have so much love to give.
