HI, My name is Rusty, and I'm a long hair Polydactyl boy! I am about 5 years old. I lived outside for about 2 to 3 years with a good Samaritan putting food and water outside for me. I slowly learned to trust that people are good, and won't do anything bad to me. Over the winter I got very matted and the people who were feeding me earned my trust enough to take me indoors and into rescue. I was shaved due to the elements, burrs and fleas that had collected on my long fur that was matted to my skin. My hair is growing back nicely. I have been fully vetted, and have been indoors since spring. I'm still a very shy guy, and like to spend my day in the cat condo, but I do love my cheeks rubbed and my chin rubbed. I really do like being an indoor cat. I will need someone to continue with being patient with me while I adjust to a new home and get used to new surroundings and let me adjust on my own terms. I'm not a fan of being held yet, but I am working up to it, I am not mean, but I will squirm away from you. I would prefer to be an only cat, but would be ok with another laid back cat. Are you the person who has the patience to let me bloom into the loving boy I am deep down inside? If so, please inquire about adopting me. Rusty's adoption fee is: $120 This includes: Neuter, Rabies, Distemper, FELV/FIV Testing (negative) , Pyrantal dewormer, and microchip.
