Date of Birth: November, 2007
Biography: Rip walked into his rescuer's yard dragging a leg-hold trap
on his left front paw in January, 2009. They took him to the Muscatine Humane Society, where Dr. Jenni amputated two
of his toes, which made him good as new! (If you look carefully at his photos, you can see he's missing some toes on
his left paw.) No one ever claimed him, but he must have belonged to someone -- he had already been neutered.
Even though he was sweet as can be (not to mention cute!), he sat in his cage for months and no one adopted him. So
Jenni decided to bring him to Witty Kitties in September for a change of pace. He had gained quite a bit of weight in
his haven at Muscatine, and Jenni thought that if he had a chance to run around in our "free-roaming" cat rooms
he could burn off a few calories (which he has!). He LOVES to be picked up and held, and will often paw at your legs
until you reach down and grab him. He's extremely well behaved, travels well, and is a favorite of ours to take to adoption
events because he'll let anyone pick him up and hold him. He's still waiting and hoping...
Special Needs: NONE!
(except for two missing toes!)
