Description: 

*Update 26th July, 2014 by Suyoun
It's been a long time to update her profile.
She's been adopted to Marla in the last Saturday. Marla kept asking and watching Ruby for a long time and decided to keep her when her profile was up again.
It's not easy to take one more cat because she already has dogs and cats.
However, Ruby was doing great at new home with her new family members. :)
Thanks Marla and let's keep in touch. Take care Ruby! It's a time to be relaxed finally!

*Update 21st December, 2013 by Suyoun
Ruby got a vaccination. :)

*Update 20th December, 2013 by Suyoun.
Mr.Park doesn't want to let her go. He will keep her forever. :)
I visit the shelter every Sat. I'll keep updating about her.

*Update 12th November, 2013 by Suyoun
Ruby has really good health condition.
Also she is very smart. she can open the door by herself!

*Update 29th October, 2013 by Suyoun
Ruby stays in the house of Mr.Park(Asan Shelter).
She is really healthy and enjoys spending time alone.
Actually she doesn't like kittens anymore because she looked after so many kittens in the past.
Now, it's the time she should be looked after by human parent.
=========================================================
Ruby, a beautiful friendly tortishell cat was living on the streets of Seoul and was being fed by a friendly elderly couple. They soon noticed she was pregnant and when she finally gave birth contacted their friend Mr Park at Asan shelter to for help to take them in which he did in a heartbeat. Currently they're at Asan, warm, snug and dry, but it would be great to get them into a home environment to help the kittens get over the first few hurdles in life.

The foster home would need to take care of them for at least two or so months (mid-end of May 2013) until the kittens are ready to be fostered or adopted out individually. Thus the foster home needs to be prepared and be able to accomodate ample space, time and love for potentially seven cats and eventually help find them foster or adoptive homes.

There are 3 ginger, 2 calico and 1 grey tabby kitten. Currently their sex are unknown though I suspect the ginger kittens will be boys, the calicos girls and possibly the tabby a girl too. Will confirm in due time! Mama cat Ruby is incredibly sweet, friendly and a damn good mother to her precious bundles.

*Update 12th October, 2013 by Suyoun
Finally she's got spayed last week.(10th October, 2013)
However, she doesn't like to stay in the room and trys to go out of the there.
She looks good after the surgery.
Now she is ready to meet a parent~

*Update 9th October, 2013 by Suyoun
She didn't get surgery yet.

*Update 2nd September, 2013 by Suyoun
Ruby will get spay surgery. Brenden will donate the cost for her surgery. :)

*Update 5th August, 2013 by Suyoun Kim
Ruby is getting stressful in the small cage.
She is not spayed yet so we'd like to have a foster home to get her surgery.
She is friendly to people. :)

우리는 루비를 마마라고 불러요. 15마리의 새끼 고양이를 완벽하게 수유하고 건강하게 길러냈거든요.
이제 마마가 수술을 받아야 할 차례에요. 작은 공간만 허락해주신다면 마마를 중성화할 계획입니다.
제발 우리 이쁜 마마에게 관심 부탁드려요~

*Updated 25th July, 2013 by Suyoun Kim
Ruby is still at the small enclosure with many kittens even though she finished feeding for them.
She needs a foster home to get spay surgery.
Please please make her home. She's done all she could do for us.

마마(Ruby)는 15마리의 배다른 새끼 고양이들의 수유를 완벽하게 해내고 모두 살려냈습니다.
아이들은 다 자랐는데 아직도 마마는 아이들과 좁은 케이지에서 함께 생활하고 있습니다.
이제 마마는 중성화 수술을 받고 영원한 집에서 쉬어야 합니다.
임시 보호처가 되어주시면 마마를 수술할 수 있습니다. 관심 갖어주세요~

UPDATE: June 30

Ruby's kittens have finally left the nest and now this sweet girl can take a good hard earned rest. Ruby is in much need of some attention and tlc, and some serious fattening up after being milked dry! The five little fuzzballs from Incheon have now been moved into foster care in Seoul. Ruby received her second vaccination and is just waiting to be spayed. It would be so wonderful to see her recover from this in a home rather than the shelter, so please consider opening up your home to this amazing little lady so she can recover in peace and with some tender care. This girl deserves only the best!

UPDATE: June 15

Marvellous Ruby and kittens are doing well. She is still nursing the five new arrivals, who are about 4 weeks old now, however the kittens seem to be suffering a bout of ringworm or mites at the moment, so are receiving some treatment for that. Hopefully they'll recover soon. Ruby is wonderful as usual, a little on the thin side since she's being milked dry, so we're trying to keep her belly full so she can keep nursing the little ones until they ready to be weened. I'm anxious to line up the best forever home for this beautiful mother when her kittens are ready to leave her. If you're looking for a sweet, gentle, loving and loyal tortie, look no further than Ruby! She would really make the most loveliest feline companion.

***

UPDATE: June 3

One mum cat. 14 kittens. I hereby nominate Ruby for 'mother of the year'. Ruby is simply a wonder and continues to impress everyone she comes across. Not only is she a stellar mum to her own kittens as well as adopted ones and an incredibly stunning tortoiseshell, she's also friendly and affectionate and would make the most wonderful feline companion. I would love to see this girl find an amazing forever home after what she's done for so many kittens; she truly deserves it.

Ruby and her own kittens, along with Tolmengi, Bawi and Pebble, received their first rounds of vaccinations over the weekend.
Her kittens are warming up with people slowly but regardless they are still incredibly beautiful kitties and if given the chance will no doubt blossom into some very adorable cats. If you are thinking about adopting a kitten, why not give one of these little shelter beans a chance in life? If you would like to meet Ruby or any of her kittens, please contact Daisy at [email protected].

Be sure to check out some recent photos of them below in the comment section.

UPDATE: May 18

Ruby's brood continues to grow! Five one-week-old motherless kittens arrived the other day from Incheon and lovely Ruby has taken them under her wing as her own and is now feeding them. What a super mum! Ruby is also feeding Tolmengi, Bawi and Pebble (http://www.animalrescuekorea.org/cat/1889) which makes 14 kittens altogether that Ruby is nursing. Ruby's own kittens are still a little shy but were comfortable to eat near and play with me. A little bit of patience and kindness will see this cuties come of out shells and once again become friendly. However, they have come of age and are now ready to be adopted along with Tolmengi, Bawi and Pebble. The five new little ones will be ready to be adopted, along with Ruby, in another two months time (mid July). As for Ruby, she seems quite content being a good mum to all these sweet little beans for the time being.

***

UPDATE: May 11

Ruby and kittens are almost ready to be adopted! Mama and her bundle will be able to go to homes in a couple of weeks. Unfortunately, due to the postponed volunteer trips for the past two weeks and thus important chances to have positive social encounters with people at the critical time of their social development the kittens have become a little feral and scared of people; hissing, spitting, swiping but no biting luckily. It made confirming there sex difficult today, hopefully next week I will be able to provide this info. Ruby too seemed a little more reserved and nervous than usual but she soon warmed up and enjoyed our affections. However, they moved in with the shelter manager today so hopefully the next week will see them open up more. I will continue to spend more time with them too on the weekends and monitor their development. But no doubt once they go into new homes they will open up and become the sweetpeas I know they can be. Please consider opening your heart and homes to one of these little beans ^^

She really doesn't like kittens anymore? Is she upset by them?
What a sweet girl. I <3 Ruby!

Mr. Park wants to keep her? Does that mean she isn't up for adoption anymore?

drkim81's picture

No she is not available for adoption now. Mr.Park asked me about it.
So I will keep checking her health when I go to the shelter. :)
Actually Ruby likes only Mr.Park. she always looks mr.Park

Karen's picture

Could you change the adoption status of Ruby's listing to "No Longer Available" or "Adopted"? Thank you!

drkim81's picture

Changed. Thanks Karen! :D

Karen's picture

Thanks for keeping us updated :)

Suyoun, how is Ruby going these days?

She has attached herself to Mr Park haha!? I would have loved to have seen her go into a less stressful home...that girl deserves so serious relief haha! But as long as she is happy, healthy and comfortable ^^ Please keep an eye on her for all of us :) I miss her dearly...

drkim81's picture

I'll keep updating her and will change the states if it needs someday.
You know, Mr.Park can change his mind. ;)
Ruby really loves him and he likes her too. I'd like to let them live together as long as they can. :)

marlajoy's picture

Is she living with Mr. Park in his home? or does Mr. Park just want to keep her at the shelter?

drkim81's picture

Actually, the former shelter disappeared. All cats are in his house.
There are small two rooms and one big living room for cats. :)
Mr.Park's room is the next cat's room.
You can see the rooms for cats. :)

drkim81's picture

Hi Marla,

looks healthy and enjoys her life at the shelter.
I will take more pictures of her tomorrow.
Thanks~ have a great weekends~

Ruby's photos what I took on 15th February.

marlajoy's picture

She's so beautiful! I'm happy to hear she is doing well! :) Thanks!

marlajoy's picture

Ruby is back up for adoption?! Mr. Park doesn't want her anymore?!

drkim81's picture

I don't want to let her stay at the shelter. :(
If I find anyone who want to adopt her, I will pursuade him.

marlajoy's picture

Does she seem unhappy there? Before you said she seemed really happy and loved Mr. Park. Have things changed?

drkim81's picture

She looks fine but four adult cats passed away all of sudden in two weeks. I think there was cruel decease.
I realized now that the shelter life is not good for all cats. :(

marlajoy's picture

?! Do you know why they died? Cruel decease? What does that mean?

drkim81's picture

I don't know. I couldn't visit the shelter for two weeks in a row.
Some wild cats don't allow to touch them to me. so it's difficult to know the reason...
All they were healthy but died suddenly...
I visited the shelter last Saturday and other cats look good.

dbis's picture

Please please help Ruby leave the shelter Suyoun...she deserves a peaceful, quiet life after nursing all those kittens and moving...I know what an extremely lovely cat she is and can be if given the chance...and I'm worried that if four cats have died suddenly she may be at risk along with all the other cats...Marla, are you still interested in fostering??? Keep us posted on Ruby Suyoun.

last week of the shelter. tones of kittens are there.
Ruby looks normal but we are not sure it. Also female cats got surgery at the kill shelter need to get surgery again. :(

marlajoy's picture

Hey, Daisy! Yeah, I would still definitely be interested in taking Ruby (I got really excited when I saw her profile up again because she has always been my favorite) but the 4 cats dying suddenly scares me somewhat. I've got two of my own cats and wouldn't want to put them, or my dogs, at risk. Thoughts? Is it possible for her to get a full vet check first?

marlajoy's picture

Looks like this site isn't going to be around much longer so you can send me a message at [email protected].

Ruby made it to my home! :) She is awesome! My 3 dogs haven't phased her a bit! She is super cool with them. And my cats have sniffed her out and there wasn't a single hiss at all from anyone - just curiosity. Right now she is exploring and all seems well. :)

marlajoy's picture

Ruby has adjusted extremely well to my home and my 5 animals. She fits right in and gets along well with everyone. She is super awesome and easy-going and we're lucky to have her around! :)
