  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Spayed Female, DOB 12/09, Hi name is Ruby Holly, I am a pretty independent cat...I enjoy playing with string toys and balls that jingle throughout the kitchen. When I get all tuckered out after a play session I will curl up on a couch cushion or the corner of your bed for a nap. I'm not so comfortable around other cats so I would need to be an only cat, and I seem to gravitate towards men. It's not that I don't like women...I do, but I really get along with men. I enjoy being brushed, and I will purr so pretty, however nail trimming time is a hassle and I will fight you...during nail trimming time I make lots of noise but I have never tried to bite my foster mom. I'm a pretty fussy kitty so it will take a special owner with patience to love me. Once I feel comfortable and loved I will show you love too! I am on special urinary track food because I have been prone to urinary track infections I have a watery eye which the doctors say is nothing that needs medical attention. If you are looking for a cat to greet you when you get home and keep you company, but you don't want all the huff and puff of having to entertain me - then I am your girl! In the sun my eyes will turn a beautiful emerald green, I should have been named Emerald. Ruby Holly is sponsored by- Bonnie T.

Our Adoption Process...

The first step in the adoption process is coming into the shelter to meet a cat. Once you have found the perfect match for you, you will fill out a one page adoption application. We will then do any necessary vet checks to make sure that if you have any existing pets that they are up to date on all vaccines and have been seen for regular vet care. Once you have been approved one of our volunteers will contact you to set up the adoption. The last step is one of our volunteers will bring the new member of your family to you and you will sign an adoption contract. We do not spay/neuter or give rabies to kittens under six months of age. If you adopt a kitten under six months you will be required to spay/neuter and give them their rabies at your expense. This will be in the adoption agreement. The adoption fees are $90 for one cat/kitten and $140 for two. All cats have been tested for feline leukemia and FIV, had their distemper booster, rabies if over six months, had fecal testing done and been de-wormed, they have been flea bathed, and have been spayed or neutered if over six months of age.
