Nathan “Hemi” Detroit

Our resident cat, Hemi, was found as a stray kitten and now he’s a grown up little cat man.

​He’s always ready to assist when help is needed! His favorite spots include resting in the cupboards with the microchips and supplies, or perched in a sink to drink from a dripping water faucet.
