Cuddly Cat Wears Her Heart on Her Chest… Literally

Some cats play coy while others are aloof, but not Zoë—she wears her heart on her chest… literally! The tuxedo feline has a marking unlike any other cute cat and dons a giant heart-shaped patch of fur between her two front legs.

Although this heart is black, Zoë is anything but dark. According her humans, she's a charmer—so much so, that when they had intended to adopt her sister, they couldn't resist bringing Zoë home, too. As the two British Shorthairs grew, so did Zoë's distinctive mark—much to her human's surprise. But, this sweet sartorial addition fits in perfectly with Zoë’s affectionate and curious personality.

Now, Zoë and her sister, Izzy, chronicle their adventures through their popular Instagram account, @izzyandthefluff. Follow it to see their everyday adorableness and silly, expressive faces.

Here's Zoë when she was just a kitten…
