Hi , my name is Contessa, but I’ve gone by “Mama” since my foster Mom’s had me.  The only background that she knows is that I was a stray and kind of adopted a family who were kind enough to let me hang around their house and feed me and took me in (although their resident cats were not friendly at all) when the time came to have my six beautiful babies.  I became a Mama the Thursday night before Thanksgiving and a couple days later came to my foster Mom’s until now.  Mom says I’m a good Mom – keeping her golden retrievers and resident cat in line and protecting my babies from them, even though they’re harmless, she says.  I’m skinny, but have been eating soft and hard kitten food for the extra calories while I’ve been nursing.  I love my treats also!  I use the litter box, but am particular about the litter.  If you think it’s paw-sible that you could be my fur-ever family, please fill out an application.


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.
