Ru

Post by lauragill » Thu April 19th, 2012, 2:20 pm

This handsome kitty is Ru. He started coming around last year. At first, we thought he was a she, because he was so shy he'd run whenever he saw us, and we couldn't get a good look to see what gender he was. So we started calling him Ru, as in RuPaul.

Image

Finally, a can of gooshy food got him to warm up to us, and we found out what a love he is. When the weather turned cold, Ru invited himself in, and after a bit of hissing and adjusting, has made friends with Molly.

Image

When we tried to collar him, he kept coming home without his collar. We finally attached a note to the third collar asking that it stay on, so that Animal Control wouldn't pick him up. Turns out he had people, and his name was Trouble. I still call him Ru.

He never goes home, but wants to be where we are. I finally went to his people to ask if they would let us have him. Turns out his people had a new baby and, though they say otherwise, didn't really want him. Well, we want him.

Image

Ru likes his kibble crunchy and his water straight up from the toilet. If you try to go to that toilet, he will follow you to find out what you're doing in his watering hole. He also likes being outside with us and gardening.

Thanks for sharing. Been a long time since I've owned a kitty who drank from the toilet ;)

Gorgeous cats!

Yes, we have a cat who likes to drink from the loo. If it's been raining and is muddy outside, there are tell-tale paw prints on the seat! LOL. And one of our cats prefers to drink from the dogs' bowl than her own!

My little Misfit has been known to *drown* her toy mice in the toilet. Found three of them there one time :o :p

Yes, they do like to leave their 'gifts' in strange and noticeable places, don't they!? LOL.

Your cat obviously wanted to see if her toys could float, Misfit. :D

We don't have a cat now (dh developed allergies) but our last two cats were hunters of a generous nature. Whatever they caught, we got half. I remember a neighbor's cageful of white mice that she kept for her boa constrictor got loose, and we were presented with six half-mice, all neatly lined up on the doorstep. The back halves. Ugh.
