Meet Ragamuffin: A Rags To (Hopefully) Riches Story

Evanston Patch regularly features pets available for adoption from C.A.R.E. at Evanston's Animal Shelter.

C.A.R.E. kitten Ragamuffin had a rough start to life. He was rescued from the street as a tiny kitten, near death and covered in fleas. Happily, mega-amounts of love and medical care from C.A.R.E. volunteers helped Ragamuffin rebound to full vigor. Now Ragamuffin is rarin' to go and ready to meet his new forever family. 

Here's how Ragamuffin would describe himself: "Hi! I'm super cute and love, love, love to play. I have a cute pink nose with a beauty spot and pink ear tips. My favorite game is "sneaky cat" where I'll sneak up you or a toy and then pounce. I can get pretty silly. I also love cardboard and will chew and rip it up, so you'll want to have some boxes around for me to play in. When I came into the shelter I was neglected and infested with fleas, but the nice volunteers used gentle flea treatments and got rid of them. The vet says I'm all good and healthy now! Come meet me at the shelter and let me sneak up on your heart!" 

Ragamuffin's Stats

  • Domestic Shorthair, 5 - 6 months old, Black and White, Neutered male
  • Ragamuffin needs to be adopted with another young, playful cat or go to a home with an existing playful cat. He loves to play and will need a playmate!
  • Ragamuffin would be a good family cat.
  • Ragamuffin is microchipped, neutered, and has had a full veterinary checkup and vaccines.

A perfect cat! I helped "de-flea" him and am so proud of the wonderful feline he has become!
