Meow! My name is Ruffles
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Ruffles is a really sweet girl that loves to purr and run figure eights around your feet. She likes to sit in the window and watch birds and squirrels. She likes to play on her own, and when she can't find a toy, she makes due with whatever she can find, even if it's a piece of food she fishes out of her bowl. Never fear, after she is done chasing it around the room, she eats it. She is quite interested in other cats, but hasn't yet decided to play with them. It does not seem to bother her at all when the resident cats hiss at her. She just hangs out and looks at them as it nothing happened. Her fur is really silky, and, surprisingly, she sheds very little. She has not gotten herself into one bit of trouble (at least not yet!) She has no eating or litter box issues. She comes out of her shell a little bit more each day, and really seems to get that she's one lucky girl. She's very excited to find her forever home.
Rufflesis a real sweetheart. She likes to be around the other cats, and is not offended by sniffing, hissing or swatting. She doesn't meow like most cats - she sort of squeals, which is really cute. Also, in addition to pulling out her food piece by piece to chase around the floor then eat, she likes the plastic pull tabs that come off of milk containers, and socks. She enjoys sitting at the back door or on a window sill to watch birds and squirrels. She's delightful.
Ruffles is 3-5 years old, spayed/neutered, FIV/FeLV negative, FVRCP and rabies vaccinated, received a fecal exam to test for parasites, uses the litterbox, and was treated for fleas and parasites as needed.
About City Kitties' Veterinary Care: We provide high quality veterinary care for our foster cats and kittens. Each animal is spayed/neutered, tested for FIV and feline leukemia, and receives age-appropriate vaccinations (FVRCP and rabies), and flea/parasite treatment as needed. Since they live in foster homes, you can see our adoptable animals in a familiar, stress-free environment, and their foster parents can tell you all about their personalities. If you have questions a week, a month, or even a year after adoption, we're available for guidance and support.
How to Adopt from City Kitties: Our adoptable animals are housed in private foster homes. The first step in meeting an adoptable animal is to fill out an adoption application. To ensure a lifelong match between you and your new pet, our adoption process involves an application, reference check, and a visit to your home at the time of adoption. Our adoption fee is $85 to help subsidize the cost of veterinary care. You can read more about the adoption process and fill out an application on our website, www.citykitties.org.
