Biography

Hi! My name is Rigby. I'm an approximately 2 year old polydactyl Maine Coon.

I was rescued as a stray from Tempe Beach Park with my best friend Maxwell. We were living underneath the old bleachers by the baseball field and relying on scraps and kibble left out by good samaritans in the park. Folks around the neighborhood had noticed us for about 3-5 months. Lots of people noticed us because I am so friendly and cuddly!

We were taken in from the park and have been living happily indoors with a foster for a little more than a month. We are both litter box trained and currently eating a diet of the Royal Canin Adult Indoor Formula. I have interacted with small dogs and other non-brother cats through a screen (see Photo 4!). Maybe a better way to phrase that is "I have ignored small dogs and other cats through a screen door," since I am pretty unbothered by their presence. I think I would do fine being adopted into a family with small dogs and other cats!

Something interesting about me is that I have thumbs (see Photo 3)! 👍 I like to use my thumbs to open doors and roam the hallway's of my foster home demanding cuddles and attention.

Usually, when a stranger enters the room, I'll scurry away to a safe hiding spot (usually to near my bestie Maxwell) for a minute or two. It doesn't take me long to come out of my hiding spot, though! Just do a few "pssp pssp pssps" and I'll come say hi and ask for ear scratches.

Something I recently learned I especially do not prefer is car rides! I don't hiss or bite, but I just get very scared and uncomfy after a car ride and would prefer to hide for a while. It would be tough for my bestie and I to live in an animal shelter because we're sensitive to overstimulating environments.

I'm deeply bonded with my best friend Maxwell and I'm looking to be adopted into a home with him. We can't wait to meet you and to join your family!
