RUFIO – 29554
Safe - 6-19-2018 Manhattan
SAFE 6/19/18 Poor Rufio was abandoned in the receiving center lobby, their is no history, seemingly younger but poor oral health. Please help this sweet cat today. A volunteer writes: Rufio is an utterly charming girl. When I opened the door she was happy to see me and showered me with affection; rubbing up against me letting me give her cheek rubs and pet the rest of her(when she wasn’t prancing in joy.) This extremely pretty gal(inside and out) has a very nice disposition and is easy to handle. An absolute pleasure! She is ideal for anyone who would like good company and a loving and lovable partner. A toast to many good years still ahead!

5/31/18 Observed Behavior: allows all handling but tense and nervous
Lying down, looking around with almond-shaped eyes. Makes eye contact when coaxed and slowly approaches the front to sniff around, curious. Head-butts as soon as hand extends towards her, her tail quivering. She starts to purr and continues to solicit attention, leaning in for more rubs.

Rufio immediately comes soliciting at the front of the cage.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Rufio remains soft in place.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Rufio remains standing at the front of the cage, relaxed body posture, soliciting attention.
Reaction to touch:
Rufio head-butts the assessor’s hand, purrs, and appreciates petting on the head and body.

Allows the pickup and remains calm.
H – Healthy
Rufio interacts with the Assessor, solicits attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. This cat can go to a beginner home.
