Well hello there! I'm Ruby, a sweet, loving, and well-behaved apricot-and-white 'tuxedo' tabby gal who was born in March 2011. I'm unusual because most ginger tabbies are male, but I'm a little girl who's all 'sugar and spice and everything nice.' My palette is almost the color of a cameo -- soft apricot with my white bib, mittens, and high go-go boots. I will dazzle your eyes -- like you would expect from any ruby! I like to snuggle up to my foster mom so she can be sure and hear that my loud purring sounds like a perking coffee pot. I'm a quiet, gentle soul who enjoys basking in a sunbeam as I gaze out the window. One caveat about me is that I need to be the only cat in the house, but if a gentle dog (like the little one in my foster home) will not hassle me, I will be fine. Because I don't like to be picked up, I'd prefer a quiet home with no children and not a lot of strange visitors. I've had my dental woes from gingio-stomatitis, but no worries -- I'll never have annual dental cleanings again because almost all of my teeth have been extracted! Although my foster mom sees to it that I get my share of canned food, believe it or not, my gums have healed enough that I can eat dry kibble again. I was surrendered to a kill-shelter because my human companion's new husband was allergic to me, but I am staying positive and just know that my next home will be for my lifetime. If you're looking for a loving, attentive companion, I'm PURRFECT. Please make plans to meet my sweet self today!
