Domestic Shorthair | 5 years old


Rufus came into our care as a stray in December 2020 with a suspected flea allergy as he was bald around his back end and underneath. His fur is now growing back and he is ready for his new home. It is suspected that his baldness could be down to stress, but it is important to ensure he is regularly flea treated to also rule out any possible flea allergy. Rufus is a friendly, calm cat who will meow or chirp for attention and loves to wind around your legs. We believe he will also be a lap cat as he will jump up on his fosterers lap for a fuss. If you are not giving him enough attention or if you stop stroking him, he will put a paw out for you to continue or will give you a little nip. He also doesn't mind being picked up, which some cats don't normally like.Rufus would be best homed with older children and although he may be suitable with other cats, we do not know about dogs.You can see how friendly Rufus is in his video by clicking the link below.If you believe you have the right kind of home for Rufus we would love to hear from you.
