Maurice "Rici" is a solid black stunning cat who has to be one of the luckiest cats in the world (don't believe a thing that you hear about black cats being bad luck!) He was rescued and lovingly cared for including the extensive vet care to cure his stomatitis. That includes two dental surgeries, antibiotics and steroids but it worked - now pain free and living the good life. 

Rici now needs a home where he can get lots of attention. His foster mom has hyper dogs of which he is not fond; he craves a lap to lie and will dish much affection in return for the love given him. He is very sweet and craves attention. Rici gives hugs and has no litter box or scratching issues.

Rici is fully vetted including neuter and all vaccinations. He is the total package just waiting for someone to open up his full potential!
