Rue is a very very special girl. She was living outside, not doing well when she followed a local Philly cat feeder meowing. She was very skinny and didn’t look too healthy so she was hospitalized at our vet but they couldn’t it figure out why she wouldn’t eat. After an ultrasound was done they found an obstruction in her intestine so she went to Penn to have emergency surgery. Turns out she ate a kitchen sponge! This poor girl was probably so desperate and hungry outside she ate whatever had a hint of food on it.
Well this little angel has been through a lot in her short life so far. But that’s over now! She’s eating well and gaining some weight, and is a healthy girl! She’s been through a trauma and so she’s still has nervousness when meeting new people or exploring new parts of the her foster home. She’s making progress every day finding new spots to lounge and playing with any toy mice she finds.
She is super super sweet, loves affection, and has the most amazing vocabulary! She meows, peeps, squeaks, and trills…it’s absolutely adorable! Once she warms up to you she will also like to rub her face on yours and give your cheeks some grooming!
She would do best in a quieter home with no kids or dogs. She could do well as a solo kitty or with a another kitty who is cat friendly. Well this bio doesn’t do her justice. She’s an absolute cutie pie and so precious. You just have to meet her to see what I mean!
She is FIV+ but in good health, please don’t let that scare you away! Cats with FIV can be with other kitties and can live long, healthy lives just like any other.
