Hello, I’m so glad to meet you! My name is Neva. I’ve been helping out around the office at Ruff Start Rescue, and they say I’m an invaluable employee that keeps desktops warm like no other! That being said, I am very excited to find my forever home and join my forever family. 

I can be a shy boy at first, but once I warm up to you I very much like to be near you. I enjoy chin scritches and pets a lot, but do not like being picked up or held. I am an independent boy, but in my own way I am affectionate too - I like to lay down and relax near you and will sometimes offer gentle head butts. My foster mom wants to emphasize that I'm just not a snuggly lap cat, and I won't become one so please take that into careful consideration. I'm still awesome and a great companion! I just have my own unique way of interacting and my own special personality.

A fun fact about me is that I am the tallest cat that many at Ruff Start have ever seen, and I’ve earned the nickname Tall Boi LaCroix! The ladies at the office say I am a truly gorgeous and unique-looking fella!

When I want food, I will let you know with a funny meow, but otherwise I’m not really vocal. You know what they say, still waters run deep! 

As far as fur companions go, I have been pretty relaxed around the other cats in the office. I think I would like a calmer cat companion that had a similar, chill energy level. I recently had a run-in with a pup I didn't like very much, but I was very stressed at the time. Prior to that I had been calm around respectful dogs.

Since I am such a tall boy, I will come with a special litter box that suits my needs - a regular litter box won’t cut it for an elevated guy like me!

I would love to be part of a wonderful, calmer home where I can take a lot of naps, get chin scritches, and be close to you. I know there is someone will love me just as I am and appreciate my uniqueness! Love, Neva.
