Ripsi likes to get his way !!! He loves to talk and head butt while getting his daily brushing.

No tummy rubbs.....And the ONLY thing he's affraid of THUNDER !!

Favorite Toy:
His sparkley dangle toy that has a bell on it. He takes it with him every where. Boxes and paper sacks are right at the top of the list too.

Favorite Nap Spot:
At the top of his cat tree. This way he can nap, but also see everthing that goes on. Or on my back at night.

Favorite Food:
His turkey and chicken cat treats. He has to have them every day @ 5:30. And of course his IAMS.

He is a big cat, weighing 17 lbs. But he can get amazing heighth when he does flipps.


Arrival Story:
I had gone to my local animal shelter in hopes of adopting a dog that I had seen on their web page. When I arrived, I learned that the dog had just been adopted :( I was ready to go home, but my daughter had gone into the cat room, so I went in to find her. I was looking at a ferret when I something touch my shoulder. When I turned around the biggest and most beautiful blue eyes were right there in my face. We bonded immediatley and I decided to give him a forever and loving home that he deserved. He is very happy and knows he is the king of the house. I am so lucky that he picked me to love.

When I got Rip, I just thought he was the coolest looking cat. When I took him for his for his first vet check up, my vet asked me if I knew what breed he was. I just thought he was a domestic cat with no specific breed. That is when I learned he was a Snowshoe. I started to learn about the breed and notice all the traits of the Snowshoe. Rip fits the breed to a tee. It never mattered to me whether he was a specific breed, but I have really grown to love the breed.
