Rusty is an orange boy who is young beyond his 9 years. He enjoys chasing his catnip toys, playing with feather wands, and especially likes back and neck scritches. Rusty is more comfortable in a quiet and calm home where there are no big noises or other animals. He enjoys cuddling up near you while you are on the couch, and will find hiding nooks to keep comfortable. Rusty is also quite the chatterbox! He enjoys welcoming you home when you call out, and also letting you know when he wants attention. He will need a little bit of time to warm up to new owners but comes around quickly in the right environment. Will you be his new pawrents?!
