Shelter Cats

Everybody Loves Rufus


Rufus arrived just a year ago, along with his carrier, blanket, and assorted parasites.


We adopted Rufus to keep Mickey Mouser company.


There were days when we considered changing his name to Dennis the Menace…


Such as the very educational Day of the Chocolate Frosting, also known as: Getting to Know the Helpful People at the Poison Control Hotline.
Everything turned out fine. We no longer leave any food on the kitchen counter- even briefly.


Mickey Mouser and Rufus the Red have become best buddies and co-conspiritors.
It was a very happy day when Rufus joined our family!

Oh those pictures made the Mom smile some kind of big time. So great that they are best friends. I just love it when the cats form friendships. But that is so cute. Take care all you kitties.

There is no question about it: Rufus is a charmer! I’m so glad these feline besties found each other. How lucky they are to have such loving and caring owners, too.

He sounds like a fun character! I have two of these. Rascal, obviously, but Rocco could carry the name almost as well. Never a dull moment.
