Meet Rubio

Until this June, Rubio was a large and happy family cat who played with his owner's children and grandchildren. Then somebody in the family developed allergies, and he was dumped at the New York City ACC.

We rescued him on the day he was going to be euthanized, but had to board him for a couple of months. Rubio truly suffered. We have never seen a cat so unhappy in a cage. For weeks he sulked and snarled, totally unlike the friendly cat his previous family had described in his surrender notes. Some cats just do not adjust to cages, and Rubio was one of them.

When we finally found him a foster, the transformation was miraculous. Out of a cage and in a home, surrounded by love, Rubio became a different cat. "He has a great personality, and once he's warmed up to you, he's just the sweetest cat on the planet," his foster mother told us. He loves head and back rubs, and follows his foster mother everywhere. He even lived amicably with a kitten for a few weeks.

Rubio badly needs a home of his own. He is young, about 2 years old, neutered, vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV, and microchipped. He is being fostered in Brooklyn.
