Hi!  I’m Roxxy.  I’m a ruff-and-tumble, delicate tomboy.  I’m as sweet as can be, but you better believe that I can hold my own in the wrestling matches against my 2 brothers!  I came into the rescue with my 2 siblings, Dale and Conway Kitty.  My foster mom thinks we’re a lot like the kittens in the Disney ‘Aristocats’ movie.  I’m a little lady – just like Marie!  The only difference I can see is that I have very pretty tortoiseshell colors in my super soft fur.
When I first came to my foster home, I was pretty shy.  It took me about a week to start trusting my foster family, but with a little more time, I’ve learned that humans are really fun!  When I meet you, it might take me just a little time to warm up, but once I do, I’ll be your best friend.  In fact, once I trust you, I will follow you everywhere you go.  I’m super curious, and I’ve been known to climb legs when it’s feeding time.  What can I say?  I love the canned food!
Some of my favorite things are running, jumping, and wresting with my brothers!  I also love playing with toys, especially the ones on a string!  If you can wear me out and get me to calm down enough, I might just even snuggle on your lap.
I met the older cat in the house the other day, and I think I have a big crush on him!  I couldn’t stop following him everywhere he went.  He didn’t pay too much attention to me, but I think he might be playing hard to get.    I sure hope I have other cats in my adoptive home because I would really like to play and cuddle with them.  I’m sure I could get along with a cat-friendly dog and gentle children too with slow introductions. 
 
If you are interested in getting to know me better, please fill out an adoption application at www.ruffstartrescue.org/adopt/adoption-application . An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.

Want to adopt a kitten? We highly recommend you consider bringing home two instead of one! Adopting kittens in pairs has been proven to be beneficial for cats’ emotional and behavioral well-being and greatly improves the likelihood of long-term adopter happiness as a result. Adopting more than one kitten also reduces the risk of “Single Kitten Syndrome” (also known as Tarzan Syndrome), a symptom of under-socialization during a kitten’s most formative weeks. Kittens who are under-socialized may develop aggressive tendencies toward both other animals and humans as they grow, creating lifelong behavioral issues for owners.
