Ruthie was saved from a local Animal Control literally at the very last minute. Her foster mom can’t imagine why she was found as a stray as she loves to be held and enjoys quiet time relaxing on a lap. She puts her head in your hands so you will know it needs rubbed. When Ruthie wants attention she seeks someone out and stands with her paws on their leg until they pick her sweet self up. She is very well mannered and neat in her litter box. She is still getting to know her furry foster family and is a bit unsure but given time she should get along well with the others. For now she is enjoying her new lease on life and is looking for someone who will love her as much as she will surely love them. approx DOB December 2011
