4/3/2013 [13-Venus] Venus
DSH/Bombay X, black, Female spayed, 10 Mo
Soft little Venus came to Rimrock Humane Society as a stray. Someone loved this kitten and took good care of her in their home. That is clear because she is totally comfortable being around all the people and animals in her busy foster family. She is one of those cats who is happy when picked up and held in nearly any position. Venus is a "soft" cat. Sure her deep dark chocolate brown ( some say black) fur is scrumptiously warm and snuggly. But, she has that soft body feel that some cats posses. The one where they melt in your arms rather than feeling stiff and ready to spring free at the first opportunity.
We already mentioned that Venus was raised in someone's home. Her only less-than-perfect habit is observing the activities of the kitchen from the top of the counter. (This could be easily cured by some spritz bottle training.) However, she is so cute that the foster family enjoys her company and antics. Venus is fascinated by the dripping faucet. She will wait for drips then vivaciously try to catch them when they fall. She will steal things too. If you aren't paying attention while she is sitting on your lap, she will steal the whipped cream off your pie -not lick at it- actually try to grab it and take it away. Silly little thief!
Venus is a darling girl who loves to snuggle and purr her person into sweet dreams. She gets along with the other cats and the dogs in her foster home. Feline leukemia negative, litter box trained, spayed, wormed, up to date on shots and microchipped -- Venus is best friends with her sister Serena. They would love to be adopted together, but both will have just as happy lives if they join different families.
4/3/2013 [13-Serena] Serena
DSH/Bombay X, black, Female spayed, 10 Mo
Serena came to Rimrock Humane Society with her sister Venus. She is the larger of the two, but a touch less confident. She isn't shy or skittish it just takes her a bit longer to feel completely comfortable with new people. She has adjusted to the busy foster home and is always around the activity.
Serena is playful as a young cat should be, but she isn't one of those bouncing off the furniture felines. Her favorite toy is a ping pong ball which she gently pats and chases. Serena gets along with the dogs in the foster home. She has a bit of an attitude about the other cats. With the exception of her beloved sister Venus, Serena sometimes feels the need to let the other cats know that she is not interested in getting too close. She doesn't pick a fight just gives a little hiss when she walks by. We think she is the princess who wants the others to recognize her royal position!
Serena loves her people. She walks in front of the computer screen and gets "in your face" to be the center of attention (this is more adorable than annoying). She settles happily into a lap for the rest of the session. Feline leukemia negative, litter box trained, spayed, wormed, up to date on shots and microchipped - A true cat lover knows the desire to snuggle one's face into a warm kitty's belly. Serena's dark sable/mink (some say black) warm tummy is irresistible.
1/23/2013 [13-Dodger] Dodger
DMH, bi-color tabby, Male neutered, 1 Yr
Mr. Dodger is an incredibly social kitty who basically came to us as an unclaimed stray. He showed up on some folks doorstep, cold & hungry but wanting loves and attention. They kept him for several days, asking friends and neighbors if they recognized him but no one knew who this sweet boy belonged to. Dodger was then turned into us and he spent a week at our vet clinic, waiting and hoping that his owners would come look for him. It just wasn't meant to be so we told Dodger not to be sad ... we would help him find a new forever home where he would be appreciated for the wonderful cat that he is! Talk about a kitty who just loves attention -- WOW! While we were drawing blood for his Feline Leukemia test - Dodger was laying on the table, purring and "kneading bread" while we worked on him. He will wrap around your legs continuously, just begging for an ear scritch! We moved him in to a foster home with children and Dodger doesn't just ADORE kids ... he LOVES them! He sleeps with each of the kids at night willingly on their beds. They can do anything to him (like big squishy hugs) and he just wiggles in for more. Dodger uses the litter box faithfully and does not mind sharing it with other cats. His foster mom says he likes to watch you clean the box and then will jump back in and use it again! :) He was NOT a fan of dogs at all and was in fact very scared of them ... maybe he was chased by dogs while he was a stray. He is slowing learning that dogs are OK and is letting them get a little closer to him. The foster home does have a ferret and Dodger does just fine with her and gets along great with the other kitties in the household. His only "naughter" behavior is that he is a scrounger for food - this is not an uncommon trait in animals who have been starved. Dodger will take any opportunity he can to get into food, any food, be it people or pet food. The children in the house are more than happy to accommodate him. :) His foster momma describes him as a "lovely boy" - litter trained, feline leukemia negative, neutered, up to date on shots, wormed and microchipped! Dodger has a very distinguishing feature ... his tail has not one but TWO kinks in it ... sort of forms a "Z" ... not very visible due to his bushy tail but when you run your hand down it, you can definitely feel it! Super sweet boy who would love a home with perhaps more children than dogs ... could that be yours?
6/18/2012 [12-Frankie] Frankie
Chocolate Point/Himalayan X, chocolate point siamese, Male neutered, 1 Yr
Frankie came to us in early April as a stray found in Broadview, MT. The kind woman that found him told us that he was so scared but was such a beautiful boy, she just knew that he had to have belonged to someone. We happily took him into the RHS fold and have been watching him blossom in his loving foster home. As with most of our strays, we have no idea what his previous life must have been like but, over the last few months, we are forming the conclusion that Frankie was mistreated. Due to this, we are pursuing a quiet, gentle home for this boy - he thrives on calm energy and each day, he is showing us new and wonderful aspects of his personality! When Frankie first came into his foster home, he was very fearful of people and defensive around the other cats. He didn't know how to play and didn't even know what a toy was. If you tried to pet him on the head, he would cower (he still does this presently). As the days passed and he basked in the love of his foster home, Frankie started to come out of his shell! His foster mom now describes him as calm, excellent in the house, wonderfully litter box trained. Enjoys playing with the other cats and doesn't mind being held but, as with most cats, it is on his terms (we would not call him a lap kitty). At night, Frankie sleeps under the foster mom's night stand but when she wakes up in the a.m., he is snuggled in bed with her. We believe the best home for him would be dog and kid free, with an owner who understands that they need to be gentle and easy around him - other cats would be fine, it just might take him some time to adjust. Neutered, feline leukemia/fiv negative, microchipped, and fully up to date on his shots. Frankie is such a handsome boy -- he has learned so much in his foster home and we know that he will just continue to grow with the proper love and nurturing!
