Arrival Story:
I went to a "Pet Idol" event in the area, and he was in a carrier with his sister, Tasha. They were kittens from feral parents and about 4 months old and crazy. PAWS brought them there in the hopes they'd be adopted, and I fell in love, brought them home, and we've been living happily ever after.

Ricky is a very sweet cat, who is very affectionate, but is not really a cuddler. He likes me to pet him and he'll turn over so I can rub his tummy, but he's not big on being picked up. Occasionally, when I watch TV, he'll lie on my chest and go to sleep. He's very curious and likes to climb bookshelves. He has an irrational fear of black shoes -- I think a bug must have been hiding in one when he was little, and now he treats all of them as if they're going to blow up in his face. He's actually nervous about anything new on the floor and examines it foot first to make sure it's not going to bite him. His fur is the softest of any cat I've ever known. Some cats just make their way into your heart and you adore them -- Ricky is one of those.
