I was rescued from a dirty garage with my brother and sister.  I was named Max after “Mad Max” the movie because I was a little grumpy when I was rescued and was not sure where I was.  I was scared and hissed but nothing came out (I don’t think it worked yet).  Once I settled in, I realized this was the life!  I love attention, belly rubs and kisses.  I’m good with other cats but never seen a dog or kids before. 

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.
