About Ruby

Born ~4/15/19, F, Calico Tabby DSH

Ruby and her siblings had a rough start in life.  Their mother was a stray cat who took very good care of her and her 4 siblings.  She had sequestered them away in the upper rafters of an old chicken coop in a private yard in Sacramento. The owners of the home had seen the stray cat come and go from their yard and were very sad to one day find her hit by a car in front of their house.  Several days later they made the decision to dismantle the chicken coop to prevent another animal from moving in and when they pried off the roof they found 5 kittens nestled in the old straw.  They had been without their mother for several days at this point and were very hungry. The homeowners rushed them to a nearby veterinary office where the litter was taken into rescue.

Ruby is a beautiful girl, very delicate and sweet, but such a big personality!  Ruby is graceful and beautiful with a lovely red spot in the middle of her forehead. She loves to run up and down the hall, chasing her siblings and being chased in return. 

Ruby is incredibly curious by nature and boldly goes where no kitten has gone before. Any open door is to be run through, regardless of what is (or isn’t) on the other side.  She is usually the one missing at meal time and we retrace our steps through the house and invariably find her in the pantry, the laundry room or behind a closed closet door. She has zipped out the front door a time or two, but immediately stops in her tracks and wants back inside.

Ruby is very human-bonded. She has been socialized with adult cats and a Labrador Retriever. She has not been around children. She is spayed, vaccinated and has tested negative for FELV.

If you would like more information, please contact foster mom, April, at or send in an Adoption Application with your chosen kitten’s name. If you are unable to reach April, email us at

NOTE: We prefer families with children bring them to the adoption appointment. Why? This allows interaction between the children and the cat. This helps ensure they will be a good fit for each other. A mismatch between a child and a cat is not in anyone’s best interest!
