Facts about Rudy

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Hi, I’m Rudy! I spent the first several months of my life living outside with a feral colony, fending for myself and eating scraps of food from a nearby restaurant dumpster. A kind lady was doing TNR (trap-neuter-release) in the area, and I ended up in one of her traps because I was so hungry and there was food inside. Needless to say, I was terrified to be stuck in there, but she quickly took me to the doctor to be “fixed” before going back to my feral family. While I was recovering from my neuter surgery, the lady saw potential in me and couldn’t bear to put me back outside in the cold. After a few weeks of months of love and patience, I finally decided that she wasn’t so bad after all. Though I was pretty hissy at first, I was actually the first of my siblings to pass the “purr test” as my foster mom calls it.

As you can see, I am quite striking with my black fur and white undercoat, which forms a cool “smoke” pattern. I am definitely the strong, silent type but I am slowly becoming more outgoing. I’ve even been known to rub against people’s legs. I tend to spend a lot of my free time relaxing in my under-the-bed-cave, but if you lie down and pet me, I will roll over and start purring. If I purr long enough, I sometimes start drooling! It’s a little embarrassing, but my foster mom thought it was adorable. I am very curious about feather toys and when I’m feeling adventurous, I will jump super high to catch it. I have looooong legs and an even longer tail, which I think adds to my handsome appearance. I am very bonded with my siblings (Pebbles, Josephine, Veruca, and Callie Jane) so I’d definitely love to be adopted with one of them. I was the man of the house for a long time, and I need to watch over my sisters!


Because I’m still adjusting to big people, I’d prefer to have a home without any tiny people (or dogs – they’re loud and scary). Please come meet me soon, and I’ll show you the rest of my adorable family.
