"When I first met Zoë, I immediately saw the heart on her chest and was very surprised to find out that no one had noticed it before," Smienk tells The Dodo. "I melted instantly, of course."
She had initially planned to adopt just one kitten, but when she saw how close Izzy and Zoë were and how they always roamed around together, she just couldn't resist taking them both home.
Smienk documents the cats' adventures on Instagram, where Zoë gets tons of attention for the striking heart on her chest. All the most-liked photos on the account show the heart, Smienk says.
