Facts about Little Dude

  • Breed: Russian Blue
  • Color: Gray Or Blue
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 10612827-CF7490
  • Hair: Short

DOB: 8/12/10

Little Dude (CF7490) was born about August 12, 2010,  He is a gray male domestic shorthair.  He's a big boy at 18 pounds.  He had been overfed and was 25 pounds in February, but he has been on a restricted diet and has lost 7 pounds since.  My brother, distraught from the long illness and passing of his wife, and his subsequent diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, fed his two cats whenever he ate and they gained weight.  While he was in the hospital, they had been cared for twice a day, for two months, but my brother's friend, who fed them what my brother had been feeding them, until I went to Pennsylvania to bring my brother and them here to care for my brother in his final days.

I first met Little Dude in February, 2016 and he took to me right away. 

He always met me at the door.  He was disheveled and his fur was matted, but he sat and let me brush him everyday to get more and more of the tangles out.  My brother had heard that he and another cat had been tossed into a park, in January weather in Pennsylvania, and he rescued both of them when Little Dude was only five months old and five pounds. 

Little Dude used to lay on my brother's bed, near him, during all the tragedy of the last few years of my brother's life.  He is very fond of sitting, or laying, near his humans.

Little Dude is afraid of new things, but he adapts quickly, except for Great Danes.  My brother said that they had small dogs, at one time, and everyone got along, but I think that was when Little Dude was a baby. 

He definitely does not like my Great Dane, so I would be hesitant to recommend him to a family who also has dogs.

Little Dude gets excited during play and, on occasion, has tried to nip.  He never did that when I was spending 10-12 hours a day in his company, for the three weeks that I was at my brother's home in Pennsylvania, so I think he might be reacting to a need for more social interaction.  Because of his dislike of my dog, we have had to keep them separated.  It was alright when he stayed in my brother's room here and had constant human company, but, since my brother's passing, he needs more human interaction than what he's getting.  He has my brother's female cat as a companion, but he always settled down whenever my brother was home from his hospital stays.  However, until he has more social interaction, I would be hesitant to recommend him to a family with small children.

He's really a sweet cat and he's a loud purrer!  He loves being brushed and having the underside of his chin scratched.  When I block my dog in a room, so that the cats can come out to play, he is curious, but he really just wants to sit by me in companionship.

About Kitten Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Welcome! Kitten Rescue is a non-profit organization located in the Los Angeles area, devoted to rescuing needy kittens and cats from shelter euthanasia and abandonment. We provide our rescued cats with all necessary medical attention and ongoing treatment to establish their health, while caring for them in foster homes, where they're given abundant love and affection. The kitties like that part the best!

Kitten Rescue presents cats for adoption regularly at locations all over Los Angeles County, in addition to conducting private adoptions during the week, with the goal of finding loving, committed homes for every animal we take in. We also offer education and help to the public regarding all aspects of responsible pet ownership, care of kittens and cats, and the importance of spaying and neutering.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All our kitties live in foster homes and can be visited at one of our four weekly adoption events! Check our website for our adoption events and locations near you!

Our Adoption Process...

When you choose to adopt one of Kitten Rescue's animals, required adoption donations begin at $120.00. All of our cats have been spayed/neutered, tested for leukemia and FIV, vaccinated, dewormed, treated for fleas and microchipped prior to adoption.

Many of our cats have also received additional vet care as needed, such as surgery for injuries or congenital problems, treatment for ear, eye, upper respiratory infections, and viruses. Additional veterinary care beyond these services, for the (hopefully) long life of your cat, will be your responsibility.

Please be aware that there is a screening process involved in adopting a pet from Kitten Rescue. To help ensure that we place our cats in loving, responsible, and committed homes, we reserve the right to turn down potential adopters as we deem necessary. A home delivery or visit is a required part of the adoption procedure.

If for any reason you wish or need to return a cat you've adopted from us, you can do so within 72 hours for a full refund of the adoption donation. After that, be it months or years later and we're still in existence, if you need to give up the animal, please bring it to us. We won't be able to refund the adoption fee, but we will place it in a new home.

Kitten Rescue cats are so for life...we're always here to answer questions and help solve problems.
