Arrival Story:
Ruby came to us from a local NFC breeder when she was was a little over three months old. She was one of a litter of three kittens, and I picked her because of her outgoing and adventurous personality, her sweet pointed little face and her beautiful tortoiseshell, white and black colouring. I was able to visit her regularly from the time she was four weeks old until she came home with me. Her breeders still visit her and sat she has just about the best temperament of any cat they've ever bred.

Ruby is a very intelligent cat and extremely curious. She loves to follow me round the house and watch what I'm doing. The vaccuum cleaner is her special favourite, and she becomes very excited when I press the cord release button so that the cord zips back into the cleaner. She also loves high places; she'll pull books off the top shelf to make room for herself and we've learned the hard way not to place precious ornaments and photographs up high where she can knock them off. Ruby goes outside on a leash and sometimes without one, too, but only under direct supervision. She loves to cavort in the rain, to climb trees and to brush her face through tall grass. She is very adaptable and has travelled almost 20000km with us in the car and caravan, the length and breadth of Australia. The thing she hates most of all is the word "No". Even if we say it in conversation in her hearing, she becomes upset! Ruby was an "only cat" until she was 6 months old. We then adopted a little Ragdoll,Felix, and almost overnight, Ruby went from being a rapscallion of a kitten to an absolutely devoted mother. She cleans him, cuddles him and even covers his number 2s in the litter tray for him. If she "loses" him around the house, she'll cry for him. She absolutely adores him, even though he is completely different in looks and personality.
