Ruby is a pretty white cat with double paws.
She is very friendly, social, playful and affectionate. She enjoys attention and is
comfortable being picked up and cuddled. She has a very endearing habit of wrapping her paws around an arm when someone pets her, as if to say, "Don't stop." She likes to cuddle up right next to her foster mom, and purrs with contentment. She is sometimes very kitten-like and silly, and loves interactive play.
Ruby is about 1 to 2 years old. She will do best as the only pet in her new home since she loves people, but does not enjoy the companionship of the other felines in her foster home.
Ruby was a stray. She was not spayed, and her health was severely compromised when she was first rescued. The cause of her problems appears to have been a flea allergy. Many cats are allergic to fleas, and even one flea can cause them severe pain.
Ruby has been in an NVHS foster home for several weeks now. She is spayed and flea-free. She loves being an indoor cat and so her allergy should not cause her anymore problems. Call the Neponset Valley Humane Society at 781-769-1990 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a meeting with
