Kirsten Manno, alumni and recent graduate of Post, is the owner of Hercules and Jasper the oddest pair of friends you’ll ever meet. Hercules, an eight year old 112 pound rottweiler is the biggest softie you’ll ever meet. And Jasper, an eight month old 12 pound kitten is the craziest kitten you’ll ever know.
Manno and family adopted Hercules eight years ago from Shake A Paw in Hicksville, NY. Hercules has diabetes, but he doesn’t let that stop him from cuddling up on the couch or sleeping in his very own giant beanbag chair. Jasper, the newest edition to Manno’s family was adopted from Last Hope adoption in Wantagh, NY.
Jasper, who may be part deaf, can be found darting across the house and getting stuck atop shelves all around the Manno household; he even plays hide and seek. The pair have become best friends since Jasper first came home, but that doesn’t stop them from getting jealous of each other. Just make sure if you visit, you bring enough treats for the both of them.
