Animal rescue is hard work, but beautiful stories abound. Case in point: Sir Silas the rescue kitty. Found as a bedraggled stray with barely a scrap of fur clinging to him, Sir Silas is now a stunningly beautiful, happy and healthy boy. "Silas before and after! He was left on the side of the road, and near death. We gave him a forever home," Sila's family in Florida wrote on Instagram. It just goes to show what Homer's Heroes in rescue already know: with a little luck and lots of heart, anything is possible!
