Meet Rickie but you can call him Rick. Rick is officially a 16 pound lump of love. He loves pets, belly rubs and he loves to be brushed. As you can imagine, he is not the fastest cat but he loves to try to escape his foster room and explore the rest of the house. Once he is caught, he has an amazing ability to turn his 16 pounds into 50 pounds. He doesn't love being held, however, he loves to cuddle in bed. He is a cat who likes to be affectionate on his own terms. He gives headbutts and kisses and he chirps. He is such a gentle giant. Rickie just showed up one day at one of our volunteer's houses. We scooped him up and brought him into the rescue. He is way too lovable to put back out on the streets again.
He is an avid bird watcher, treat eater and one of his favorite past times is shedding. Wouldn't you love to take this guy home? He is the total package!
All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Davidsonville, MD for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Davidsonville.
This cat's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
