Rufus is adopted!


Howdy, I’m Rufus! I’m a big tuxedo fellow with a handsome half mask that would make the Phantom of the Opera jealous. I came here when my guardian passed away. It took some time for me to realize there were other kind people who could love me almost as much as she did, but now I’m ready for my new family.

Once I know I’m safe, I’ll be the first one to meet you at the door, with my confident Party Animal personality. I like meeting new people and exploring new situations, but am happy to help you in the office and then settle down for some laptime too.

At only about 6 years old, I’m still a playful guy too! I especially love the Cat Catcher, as I was a good mouser when I lived outside. I will really appreciate daily playtime to keep me entertained inside. You can see I’ve lived an interesting life by the feathering on my ears!

I’ve been around lots of other cats and you might not be surprised to find out I do well with the ladies! I may need a slower introduction if my new friend is a male though as I tend to be the lead cat. . I’ve met some dogs I was friends with, so a gentle introduction to a cat-friendly dog might be just the ticket. We don’t yet know how I am with small children, but I’m such a big friendly loverboy, I’ll probably do well.

I can be adopted for $90, which includes my neuter, vaccinations (or voucher), microchip, food & litter starter kit and a free well-kitty checkup with one of our partner vets.
