Lapcat Rufus' Selfies / 1300 Posts

What does a lapcat look like? If you guessed that it would look like our handsome pal Rufus, you'd be 100% correct. He's more than just a snuggler, though. As you can see from these photos, he also happens to know his way around a selfie!

Rufus, who ended up at PAWS after being found as a stray, is about 9 months old. He is very friendly, and his default is definitely snuggling and being pet. He also enjoys catnip and likes to play when the mood strikes, adores people, and gets along well with other nice kitties. 😸 Rufus is neutered, microchipped, current on his vaccinations, and negative for FIV and FeLV. Come meet this awesome dude today!
 

Wowzers! This is post number 1,300 for Animal Shelter Volunteer Life!
  Mom Tracey started this little blog back in December 2008, and since then, we've befriended more than 5,500 kitties who have come through PAWS. We've shared about more than 1,100 of them at ASVL. We never dreamed we'd still be here more than one million visits and 46,100 comments later. It definitely never gets old, and it's such a joy and privilege to share about these amazing and adoptable cats. It wouldn't be possible without the love and support of our friends and followers. Thank you for sharing in our journey! We are so, so grateful for your friendship and encouragement, and for the strength and joy you give us. 💕

It's Sunday, which means we're hopping along in the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop, hosted by our pals at The Cat On My Head. Be sure to check it out to see who else is hopping along (or to join in on the fun)!

Rufus is a big guy and he looks like an old soul. We thought he was a senior but see he's only 9 months. Best of luck, big fella.
