We found Rusty online at Jennifer’s Pet Rescue; which is, according to their website “a no-kill, not-for-profit, animal rescue organization.” They also have a WEBSITE if you are interested in seeing where Rusty came from. These 3 pictures are the pictures that we saw of Rusty online in the “pets for adoption” area that I had stumbled upon. Of course by the time we got to him, he had been overlooked many times and had had weekly baths (which left his fur thin on his body) to ensure that he was clean each Saturday at the Petsmart in Hiram, Georgia where he was “showcased” again and again. Thankfully nobody else wanted him because apparently we wanted him. 🙂
I had always wanted a bobtail cat and I have a soft spot for little yellow kitties. Rusty had both of these qualities. I loved this picture of him in somebody else’s unfinished room here. It is kind of a sad little room because it is unfinished and that makes it look kind of dreary and sad in itself. Yet in the midst of this dark room was a golden spark of a kitten. We didn’t know much about Rusty other than the fact that he was found with his litter mates somewhere and were not wanted. We do know that he spent these early days in this home with kind caretakers who also owned a golden retriever. We really think that Rusty thinks he is a golden retriever as well! LOL!
So we made contact, asked the people to please hold him for us since we would be driving down (to nearly Atlanta Georgia) 2 hours one way from Chattanooga, TN to sign, pay for, and take this wad of lightning home with us. 😛
And that is the story of how Rusty became a wanted kitty.
