Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Rusty

Posted on April 17th, 2016 by Laura Fonda


Rusty 1Meet Rusty! Rusty is young, long and lean with endless energy to run and play. He purrs the minute you touch him, but is too energetic to sit in your lap.

He was found on a busy street and was probably hit by a car. Both of his back legs were broken, but he is mended up now and able to get around quite well. One thing he can’t do is jump very high but he can get on the top of the cat tree and the sofa table to watch the bird feeder. He needs to be kept indoors only since he might not be able to get away from a threat.

Rusty 2Rusty likes to be with people and follows his foster parents around the house. He gets along well with his foster brother and would like a home with another cat who likes to play. He loves his cardboard scratcher and has perfect litter box manners. He is still learning play manners, so is not suitable for small children. He seems frightened of dogs but might be ok with a slow introduction to a calm dog.

Rusty 3Rusty (SAS ID#29603696) is being adored in a foster home; you won’t find him at the Shelter. Please contact the Foster Care Hotline at (206) 684-0685 to arrange to meet him.
