Story
My name is Ruby. I'm a sweet, two-year-old girl who is 10 lbs. and loves to play and nap. Since I am pretty young, I still like to play like a kitten. I would really like a kitty friend to play with and enjoy being near my human, just not getting picked up, since I am just a bit timid. She's timid with new people but gets along well with other cats and actually needs a cat companion to show her who is safe. As soon as she sees other cats getting attention, see comes running up. Her personality seemed to change after her last Vet appointment. I've had her since she was a kitten. She loves pets and head scratches and will lay next to you but doesn't really like being picked up.She's very bonded with my old cat, Tom. They seem to be together quite often. So if you have a neutered male and promise to keep her indoors, she would be happy. She could do well with a female too. Doesn’t seem to like dogs but if she has a safe space away from them, it's not a problem. A quiet home without young children would be best because of her shyness. My favorite thing about her is her thick fur. She's soft like a bunny. Her nickname is That could change as I grow! Will you be my HERO? Fill out an application today!April 13, 2024, 5:45 am

Junior and Sissy are brother and sister. I love both of their personalities. Junior loves to attack his Monster doll or my toes, which ever he comes upon first! Sissy thinks the bouncing cardboard is a bug she needs to catch. These guys are total loves both to people and each other. Both also gets along great with other kitties. They were born indoors when their mom Honey was rescued very pregnant so they are healthy and happy kittens. Junior and Sissy would love to be adopted together, which is our first choice. We may consider separating to be a buddy to another young active kitty. If you bring these two into your home they will be a wonderful addition to your family..
