When Ryan’s Mom decided to adopt a cat, her main concern was finding a cat that would do well with a young child. Ruby (Claire at the time) immediately came to mind as having just the right personality- friendly, playful and very laid-back. Looks like the match worked out perfectly! Ruby even lets Ryan dress her up in Mr. Potato Head’s hats!
Ruby is a wonderful example of how Adoption Profiles/Adoption Counseling can work. When the right cat is placed with the right family, everyone involved gets so much out of the adoption. Ruby is also an example of how sweet and loving our “less adoptable” black cats can be. In a shelter setting, Ruby would likely have been overlooked for cats of other colors. So, if you’re considering adoption, whether with us or another organization, take a second look at a black cat!
