Hi, my full name is Sir Alfred, but I mostly go by "Alfie." I spent at least 5 years fending for myself, so I'm still learning how to interact with humans, but I'm loving inside life! I love pets, wet food (and treats, and dry food, and whatever I can steal....I love food) my scratching board, and feather toys on strings.

I'm still learning not to express my displeasure (or affection) with bites and claws, but I've come a long way since I came to live with my foster family, and usually keep my teeth and claws to myself. I'm a curious boy and like to get into things, but I'm not destructive. I can't be trusted around open containers of food, but my foster mom says she can’t be trusted either, so what can you do.

I'm cautious around new people, but once I get to know you, I'm very talkative and sweet - I follow my foster family around chirping and meowing and generally getting under foot. I like to be where I can see what's going on and have conversations with the humans. I love pets and chin scratches, but I don't sit on laps. I'm unsure about being picked up, but I've been working on it with the foster humans. I might not ever be a lap cat, but my foster family think I might one day be the sort of cat that will sit next to you for pets and minor snuggles since I like people and scratches so much.

My foster family has two dogs towards whom I am largely indifferent. I try to steal the other foster cat's food, but I mostly leave her alone, and I back off when she tells me to. I have no problems using the litter box. Kids make me uncomfortable - I will do best in a house with older children. I'm looking for a family who will be amused by my antics and will be willing to play feather-on-a-string with me and listen to me talk (and maybe even talk back!)

An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal.  Please check out our website, www.ruffstartrescue.org for more details and additional pictures on any of our animals! All Ruff Start dogs and cats are spayed/neutered, up to date on age appropriate vaccines, microchipped, dewormed, and on monthly flea/tick and heartworm prevention (dogs) as well as heartworm tested (dogs).

Ruff Start Rescue is a foster based rescue. Animals are located in homes throughout Minnesota. We do not have a facility where animals are kept.
