Looking for the most exquisite purring machine on Long Island? Meet Ruby, a gorgeous purebred Chocolate Torte Himalayan cat. Ruby is 12 years young, spayed, up to date on shots, and quite healthy, aside from some arthritis. She is very pretty with amazing blue eyes.
Ruby is her own cat and likes things on her own terms. She can be very affectionate at times, especially in the morning, when she wants you to get out of bed and feed her! At other times, she likes to follow you around the house like a dog. She likes to sit next to you, and is a great conversationalist. In an only-pet home that is quiet, predictable and comfortable for her, Ruby will probably come out of her shell and be more of a loving lap cat. Her environment has been quite chaotic for the past year or so, and this has caused Ruby some anxiety.
Ruby’s owner, Christina, loves her very much. Unfortunately, life has taken a serious turn, and she is no longer able to provide Ruby with the care and environment she needs to flourish. She is dearly hoping to find Ruby a wonderful home with a die hard Himy lover who understands the nature and needs of the breed. Ruby needs lots of TLC. She has never quite accepted a grooming routine, but a patient owner will be able to help her welcome the pleasures of the brush.
If you would like to offer Ruby the loving home she needs and very much deserves, please fill out our online information form below. Once received, we will have Ruby’s owner contact you to discuss your application and set up a mutually convenient time to meet.
Supplies will be included. Rehoming fee will be waived for the right owner.

Older Children, Adults Only
When comfortable, she follows me wherever I am or Melissa or Miranda is and sits next to us. She smells your finger and places her sent on it. Not a lap cat, except in bed in morning when she wants to be fed. She will lay on your chest and purrrrrrr. She sleeps in bed with you next to your head or feet. She meows and talks to you when you speak with her. She lived with one other cat who was 5 years younger Fae. Before we got Fae, we took in ferrel cat, Raja. So she can be with one other cat. We already found a home for other cat. Having trouble with this one
We had to move, child support ended, had to give up apartment, girls live with dad and their landlord does not want pets. I moved in with friends with 3 dogs. Not appropriate for her to move in with me. Not used to other animals.
