Facts about Ryker

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 10909229
  • Hair: Short



Big gentle Ryker is approx 4 years.  He was trapped and brought to a impound in KY.  He was very scared at the impound and possibly feral or semi feral.  He had been in the impound in KY since 2/12/16.  Ryker was transported to GTAS in Oct of 2016.  

He wasn't I would say he was scared here at GTAS, rather confused.  He was quiet in his cage, but he was always looking for a hand to give a head too or a hand to give him a pet across his back.  He loves to has his back scratch by his top of the tail.  That is his 'spot'.  He will melt it when scratched there.   

Ryker doesn't like to be alone so it would be best to have a friend to give him a friend to lay with/next to.  If he feels like his is alone he will softly cry to let you know that he wants to be with you.  He would be happiest to have a next to body with him.

He is one of my favorite cats.  He is not an active cat, but he will make sure that you are loved.
