Rue was living with a man who loved him and the other cats there very much. Unfortunately, he became ill with terminal cancer and was no longer able to care for any of his animals. His daughter contacted The Rescue House and asked if we could help out.

Rue is a fun and enthusiastic guy who is quick to bring a smile to the face of the person watching his playful shenanigans. He’s happy to get attention and quite happy to play, though there is one stipulation: those two things need to not overlap for Rue. Playtime is for toys and wands and jumping around; petting time is for hands and gentle calm interactions. If they are mixed, Rue can get overstimulated and may get nippy even though he isn’t trying to be mean.

Rue has lived with a number of other cats and does well so long as they don’t mind him being a bit in their faces with his youthful enthusiasm... he hasn’t quite learned to respect boundaries. We don’t know his thoughts on dogs, though we feel Rue would be better suited to a home with adults or older children who will understand the separation of petting and playtime and give him consistent guidance.

Rue is a charming kitty who just needs a bit of help figuring out what’s appropriate when. However, for the person willing to give him that guidance, there will be so much love and fun!
