Ryssa was surrendered as a stray, and adopted two months later, after being fostered by an MSPCA volunteer. Her adopter, Charlotte, shares this news:
"I just wanted to send an update on Ryssa. She is so affectionate and acts like a dog. Thanks so much for sending her home with me and dealing with my indecisive parents (who absolutely love her). My dad practically stalks her and they stay up late together and watch Mad Men (both sharing the couch). Here are some pictures of her. She is obsessed with my calculus book for some reason. She also knows some tricks - she can do high five, beg, lie down, target, and spin in both directions."
