    *Bonded with Cricket*

    Hi there, my name is Virgo, but you can call me Virgie too! My cat family and I were living in a hay barn on a farm. There were far too many of us on the property -luckily, Ruff Start Rescue was contacted and I am now healthy and living the good life as an indoor cat! 

    A few of my favorite things are: my brother Cricket, lick treats, toys of all kinds (especially motion toys and wand toys), and lots and lots of pets and lovin’s from humans. I am low-key, affectionate, and VERY sweet. That being said, I absolutely will head butt the bag of cat kibble when you are pouring it and make it spill everywhere, hahaha! Sorry, I’m affectionate towards everything, including inanimate objects! I like to make “air biscuits” as I stand (kind of funny, I know), and if you’re taking a nap, I’ll curl up right on top of you! Did I mention I’m incredibly sweet? I think you get the idea!

    Me and my brother love to snuggle, wrassle, chase, and play with each other! I am teaching him that humans are good and it's fun to get pets - he's a little uncertain right now but he has made strides in foster care! Because Cricket and I are bonded, we must be adopted together. Click here to learn more about him.

    My foster home has a dog, and I guess I’m kind of unsure of her and usually keep my distance. I’m not afraid, but I’ve noticed she can be kind of a grump sometimes. I think I’d like a dog who wants to be friends with me!

    I can’t wait to meet my forever person(s) and start my new life as a loved member of a household! I didn’t know I would luck out and end up getting to be an indoor kitty; I am so excited and I have so much love to give! XOXO, Virgo

    UPDATE:  After some veterinary work it was determined I have a chronic upper respiratory infection, at this time there is no further care needed but my adopter should know I can have flare ups with congestion and sneezing.. My future adopter may need to follow up with their veterinarian.

    Virgo is from Zimmerman. If you are interested in getting to know this animal better, please fill out an adoption application. An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.
