*Bonded with Safire*

Mama Rubie, a nurturing mother, is currently under foster care with her three kittens: Emerald, Safire , and Pearlie. She is bonded to Safire so they must be adopted together. She displays a firm yet loving maternal instinct, quick to set her rambunctious kittens in their place while being sweet and affectionate when they are calm.

Rubie exudes an aura of calm, cool composure, and her physical beauty is captivating. In the beginning, she would seek out quiet corners like the cubby holes in my entertainment center or end tables to rest. However, as time has passed, she has grown comfortable enough to lounge in the middle of the kitchen or living room, contently observing your activities. She's considerate, refraining from disturbing your sleep at night, yet welcoming you with a purr or meow if you happen to get up during the night.

Among her kittens, Safire, one of the males (his name was chosen before his gender was known), is still available for adoption and would make a perfect pair if you're interested in adding two furry companions to your life.

Mama Rubie and Safire engage in occasional, playful roughhousing, despite their size difference, creating entertaining and endearing moments to witness.

Rubie is from a local shelter. 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.

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.
