Facts about Ruth Bader Ginsburg

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Two petite cats who sit on your lap and drool in happiness, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and THurgood Marshall have come far from their roots as feral cats.

These siblings were born to a feral mama cat in an abandoned gas station. When the property was sold and developed soon after the birth of her kittens, mama took them all over the neighborhood looking for sanctuary. People tried to help, but it was difficult to trap the dislocated family. Mama and Ruth and Thurgood are the only survivors.

Mama now has a home, and Ruth and Thurgood want one next! Though born feral, these two have some kind of sweetness gene. They were not touched by any human before they turned a year old-- we know that!-- but they purr and sit on your lap. The only indicator of their past is that they are shy of people they have not met. So if you want to adopt them, they will need a little time to show you affection-- they have needed to be wily to survive!

Can you offer two sibling survivors the security and love they have never known?

About Frisky Whiskers Network, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Frisky Whiskers Network, Inc. was founded in 2006. We are an all-volunteer, nonprofit cat rescue operating in the St. Louis, Missouri metropolitan area. We believe that every cat deserves a chance to have their own human family to know the love and security of a forever home...

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold adoption events every weekend from 1-5 pm Saturday and 1-3 pm on Sundays at the Petco store in Kirkwood, Missouri. We also have a few cats who reside at the Petco Kirkwood during the week. (During holidays adoptions are done by appointment only)

To adopt a cat from Frisky Whiskers or to inquire about a particular cat, visit us at an adoption event, email us at, or call us at (636) 343-7106 or TEXT to:(314) 477-9038 & (314)780-3325.

Our Adoption Process...

We ask people fill out an adoption application, and we interview applicants. Our goal is to ensure a good fit between cat and humans. Once we have reviewed the application, we require you to complete an adoption contract.

We do not discriminate against anyone for reasons of race, religion, politics, gender, or sexual orientation, but we reserve the right to refuse an adoption based on information we gain during the application process. We try very hard to match our cats' needs and requirements with applicants' lifestyles and circumstances. Our goal is to make every adoption a happy and lasting one!

Our adoption fees cover vet care for emergencies and medical issues in addition to routine care. Before adoption, all animals receive the following care: spay/neuter, vaccinations for FVCRP & rabies, test for felv/fiv, microchip, and treatment for fleas/parasites.

Adoption fees are as follows: 1) senior cats $95, 2) cats 1-7 $125, and 3) under one year $150. We do not intend to imply that senior cats are less valuable; rather, this fee schedule reflects the fact that senior cats tend to come to us already spayed and neutered.
