Office Anarchist

With less than 1 year of life experience, Rudy has joined our office to terrorise the team and tear up any loose packaging. He can generally be found rummaging through uncovered bins, pining after a feed or rolling around on his back chasing belly rubs. He’s a fun little fella to have around even if he does pee on the carpet daily. Always down for a treat, he has quite the appetite for such a little guy.
