Collared today: Zorro

Thank you for supporting our journalism. This article is available exclusively for our subscribers, who help fund our work at The Baltimore Sun.


NAME: Zorro

OWNERS: Pat and Gene Sweeney (Gene is a Baltimore Sun photographer.)

HOW THEY MET: Rescued from Pat's former workplace in Hunt Valley after Zorro got into a fight with another, unknown animal. The vet checked her out and then she came home with us.

AGE OF PET: 9 years old

HOME: Parkton

BREED: Tuxedo

NIGHTTIME RITUAL: "Purrs" us to sleep above our heads, of course on our pillows, each night.

FAVORITE FOOD: Anything her fellow house cat has left in her bowl. Plus a spoonful of milk after our breakfast.

THE TOOTHLESS WONDER: She has no teeth, (victim of her outdoor years), but that has never stopped her from eating anything put in her bowl, hard or soft.

IF ZORRO HAD A MOTTO FOR LIFE, IT WOULD BE: Purring will get you through anything!
