She shares her name with the late Supreme Court Justice. This week, Ruth Bader Ginsburg from the Animal Welfare Society in New Milford needs you to give her a new forever home.

RBG is about two to three years old and is a beautiful black and white Tuxedo feline.

She's quite a regal looking kitty and loves all people, other cats, is good with kids and you will not regret having her become part of your family.

She's got the official colors of a Supreme Court Justice, with white marking around her neck to remind us of the scarves that the actual Ruth Bader Ginsburg used to wear.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg came to the Animal Welfare Society as a stray, and loves to be pet, and is extremely affectionate. Of course all adoptable animals are always up to date on their vaccines, and RBG has also been spayed.
