Manx Cat Syndrome kitten

A kitten in diapers?  What is that all about?  Meet Little Ricky – 12 months old. He has the classic Manx ­type body - compact, a little pot­bellied and a little bow­legged.  He’s very cute.  He's bright and alert, curious and gutsy. He's sweet tempered, affectionate, and always seems happy. Little Ricky is the perfect cat­ except for his little problem with elimination because of the lack of a tail and incomplete development of his spine. The diapers help him be part of the household, playing and interacting with other pets and with his humans.  A little extra time and minor expense to save a kitten with a huge heart.  We believe that he can have a normal life with someone who is willing to meet his needs.

For more information on on Manx Syndrome and the complete story on Little Ricky contact Marilyn at 503-312-4295.  To meet this kitty, please fill out a pre-adoption application under "ADOPT" on our website at  WWW.CATSCRADLERESCUE.COM . Your information will be forwarded to the foster parent for follow-ups and meeting arrangement.


Cat's Cradle is an all-volunteer, non-profit foster-home based rescue serving Oregon cats who need new homes. 100% of your adoption fee goes to provide for the medical and physical needs of the cats in our care. We invite you to become a foster parent and experience the great satisfaction of helping a cat or kitten in need.

About Cat's Cradle Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Cat's Cradle Rescue keeps cats out of shelters by offering an alternative to a cage - we are a no-kill FOSTER-HOME BASED rescue group that welcomes cats to our home environments as they await adoption.


Why Foster Care? Does your new kitty like children? Does she play with dogs or find other felines too uncomfortable to be around? Does he have consistent litter-box manners? Does he want to cuddle or perhaps his comfort zone is to be more independent. Many life-factors influence cat behavior and while genetics plays a role, we know that human touch, kindness, nurturing and consistency of care are non-negotiable requirements. We provide all of this.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Weekly adoption events are held at Petco – Beaverton on every Saturday from 12pm to 4pm. Feel free to drop by and talk to our adoption counselors.

Event Location: 4037 SW 117th Avenue, Beaverton, OR 97005

Our Adoption Process...

Adoptable cats and kittens are shown on our website with detailed profiles and pictures. To help our potential adopters learn more about the cat(s), we encourage them to first contact and discuss with the foster family if it might be a good fit. Potential adopters must submit an adoption application for review and evaluation. We also have onsite Adoption Events on a weekly basis. Our adoption counselors are present to handle the interview and adoption process.

Our adoption fee for single kitten is $120 and $200 for a pair. Adult cat adoption fee is $60.

We require that adopted cats be mainly indoor cats and no declawing is allowed. Adopters must be over 21 years old and sign a contract that lists out his/her responsibility as the cat's owner.
