Meow! My name is Ricky
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Black (All)||Age:||Young|
I am already neutered, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and good with cats.
Ricky is a handsome boy who was rescued as a tiny kitten from a yard sale. He is playful, curious and charming, and he has lush, ultra-soft fur. He is painfully shy, so he is always overlooked when potential adopters come to visit. However, it's possible he will warm up if he is in a home where there are fewer cats and he can receive plenty of patient attention. Ricky gets along very well with other cats, and would do best in a home with a kitty buddy.
Ricky was born in April, 2006. He tested negative for FIV/FeLV, is current on vaccinations, neutered and microchipped and is ready to go to a permanent home.

Rescue Group Info...
Tuxedo Junction Rescue is a no-kill rescue organization dedicated to providing tender care and permanent placement into loving homes for cats at risk for being put to death in shelters in the Austin, Texas area.
We are a non-profit, tax-deductible 501(c)(3) charity.
As space permits, Tuxedo Junction Rescue will also provide a safe haven to cats at risk of danger or death through abuse, neglect, or abandonment, with the goal of finding secure permanent arrangements for these cats.
TJR supports the concept of no more homeless pets by spaying and neutering all cats in its care before adoption.
Tuxedo Junction Rescue primarily rescues black and white ("tuxedo") and black cats because of their historic difficulty in being placed through shelters. However, this focus does not preclude rescue of other cats in need.
Tuxedo Junction Rescue believes in thinking globally and caring LOCALLY, and only adopts to permanent residents of the greater Austin area. People outside Austin are encouraged to use this site to find their new family member from a shelter or rescue organization in their area.
You are always welcome to come and visit the cats at our location. If you'd like to visit, please call first at 451-3669 and arrange a time to come.
Please don't call after 8 pm as that's when we're tucking in our fur friends for the night!
