Meet Rufus

Our adoption process can be found on our website here:

Estimated birth date: 4/1/22

Personality: Inquisitive, Friendly toward humans, Friendly toward other animals, Chatty, Playful, Energetic, Sweet, Rufus doesn't mind being petted or picked up except for the fact that he would rather be running around playing!

Favorite treats: So far, Oxbow Baked Treats with Cranberries

Favorite toys and activities: Rufus loves to run, run, run! He enjoys hideys, tunnels, and exploring the room.

Potty trained: Rufus has been pretty good about using just a corner of his litter box for pottying, and he also uses his lounge areas as well. Pretty good about not going when he is out for floor time except for his favorite hang-out areas.

This animal’s daily routine: Rufus has been getting lots of floor time during the day because he has tons of energy.

BFF (Does this animal have or need a friend of the same species in their home?): Rufus is in the process of bonding with Hamlet.

Other species this pet has been exposed to and reaction: Rufus met the current fosters cat right away, and ran right up to her to introduce himself. The cat doesn’t let Rufus get closer than 4 inches before the cat runs away or jumps on a chair. But that doesn't stop Rufus from continuing to both approach the cat as well as follow around the room.

Health concerns: No

Other notes: Rufus LOVES his floor time! His preference would to be out 24/7. If he isn't running around the room, he is settled into a favorite napping spot (there is only one so far!), napping, He usually comes to greet the foster when they enter the room, especially if they call his name. He is very social, although he is usually too busy exploring to want to slow down long enough to be held. If he is in a cuddle sack, he will settle down on the fosters lap for some pets.

Has this animal been exposed to children? What was their reaction? Not the current foster house, but his previous foster home had kids (don't know the ages)

Rufus came to MNPPR when his owners became allergic to him.

Due to our rescue being foster based, not all foster homes are located in Saint Paul, MN. This animal's foster parent prefers to meet at the Richfield PetSmart - 1100 W 78th St, Richfield, MN 55423 or Chuck & Don's Pet Food & Supplies 8537 Lyndale Ave S, Bloomington, MN 55420 for meet & greets, & adoptions.
