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!
