Rudy's Story

Long hair, don’t care! That’s Rudy’s motto! This gorgeous, orange, long-haired kitty is ready for his forever home. Rudy arrived at PAWS after spending some time at a suburban shelter in Plainfield. The shelter life was pretty stressful for this handsome guy, so he’s currently unwinding in a loving foster home, where it hasn’t taken him long to come out of his shell at all! In fact, it turns out that Rudy is extremely affectionate and loves extended petting sessions. His foster mom loves hearing him purr constantly, especially when he’s curled up sleeping on the pillow beside her. Morning cuddles are Rudy’s favorite, and he can’t wait for his foster mom to come home from work. “He gives sweet little head-butts and is very curious,” says his foster. She adds that he loves attention and can be quite the conversationalist! Whether it’s cuddling, purring, or playing with his laser pointer or wand toys, Rudy is the sweetest cat ever! If you need some extra kitty cuddles in your life, Rudy could be the cat for you!

Affectionate Rudy would do best in an adults-only, pet-free home where he’s the king of the castle. He’d much prefer spending his time with loving humans than other pets. Rudy loves to be around his foster mom as much as he can! He even perches on the back of the couch to rest his head near hers, purring loudly. Rudy is very energetic and would do well in a home where he can play and keep entertained! His foster says, “I think he will easily bond with anyone, given a little time… He's a normal, happy, sweet, playful boy with his own endearing idiosyncrasies and he certainly doesn't act his age.” He may be 10-years-old, but his playfulness and affectionate nature make him seem like a young kitten! If this cuddly, happy kitty sounds like the perfect little guy for your home, email to arrange a meeting with adorable Rudy! Who knows, maybe you’ll be sharing your couch and pillow with him tonight!
