Description: Rudolph the red-nosed kitten (Rudy for short) was named after the famous reindeer because of his endearing pink nose. He has unique markings on his brown/gray fur, complimented by a white belly and mittens. Rudy also sports a clipped ear.
Personality: Rudy is such a charmer! He can be a tad shy the first few minutes after meeting new people, but warms up very quickly. Who knew such a loud purr could come from such a small body? He loves to be massaged on his scruff and enjoys being flipped over to have his underarms rubbed.
He can be found lounging on or under the bed or on his cat tower, watching the world go by through a window. Rudy formed an instant friendship with our other foster cat, Figaro. These two sweet rascals prefer to spend time together cuddling and licking each other. See this video for evidence! Because Rudy is a kitten, he will need to go to a home with another kitten (or perhaps even Figaro!).
Animal History: Rudy was originally part of a feral colony. We trapped him to get him neutered and realized that he had a bit of a cold. Because of this, we kept him a bit longer to give him medicine. One day when his foster mom opened his cage for his daily dose, he ran out, curled up in her lap, and began purring. At that moment we knew we couldn't send him back to the wild!
