Rickie is a sweet boy who is not at all dominant or aggressive, but he is timid and fearful with people. He was in the home of a woman who had many cats who were not socialized. Rickie will accept being petted at times but his initial reaction is to try to get away. It takes patience to be able to pet him. Once he allows you to caress him he clearly enjoys this. He will become socialized in a home with someone he can develop a trusting relationship with. One can feel his fear, but also his warmth. He is good with other cats. Rickie had a serious ear infection a while back, and although it healed and he is in perfect health, he has been left with a permanent head tilt. Unfortunately, this is often a side effect of a severe ear infection and, even once the problem improves, the tilt will remain. Rickie so needs a 'forever' home where he will be loved and will surely become an affectionate and loving cat.

Rickie est un minet doux qui est pas du tout dominant ou agressif, mais il est timide et craintif avec les inconnus. Il était dans la maison d'une femme qui avait beaucoup de chats qui n’ont pas été socialisés. Rickie acceptera d'être choyée par moments, mais sa première réaction est d'essayer de s’éloigner. Il faut de la patience pour être en mesure de le caresser. Une fois qu'il vous permet de le caresser, il aime clairement. Il deviendra socialisé dans une maison avec quelqu'un qu'il peut développer une relation de confiance avec lui. On peut sentir sa peur, mais aussi sa chaleur. Il s’entend bien avec les autres chats. Rickie avait une grâve infection de l'oreille un certain temps, et même si elle a guéri et qu’il est en parfaite santé, il a conservé une inclinaison de la tête permanente. C’est malheureusement un effet secondaire d'une telle infection de l'oreille sévère et, même une fois le problème réglé, l'inclinaison demeure. Rickie a donc besoin d'une maison 'pour toujours' où il sera aimé et deviendra sûrement un chat affectueux et aimant.

About Animal Rescue Network/Reseau Secours Animal

About Our Rescue Group...

The Animal Rescue Network's mission is to bring about a day when no unwanted animals are destroyed in shelters or pounds, and when every cat and dog can be ensured a happy life in a good home.

We are the largest no-kill shelter in Quebec, run entirely by volunteers. We receive no funding of any kind and rely entirely on private donations to sustain and care for all the animals at our shelter.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold weekly adoption clinics at pet supply stores throughout the Montreal area, and the South Shore to find permanent homes for our cats and dogs.
We'd love to meet you at our next adoption clinic!

At our last adoption clinic, we had 5 cats adopted!

  • Our Adoption Process...

    All new adoption homes are carefully screened to determine if they are suitable. There is an adoption fee that includes the sterilization, initial vaccination of every animal, testing for FIV and FeLV of all cats at the shelter, and a 21 days trial period. A contract is always signed between the ARN and the adopter for their protection. A follow-up by an ARN adoption coordinator is often done either by telephone or by visit, and we also offer help/cousel for the life of the cat.
