Facts about Ricky

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
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 with an experienced adopter who can understand his shyness and uneasiness with most humans..


About Our Rescue Group...

Tuxedo Junction Rescue is a closed-intake sanctuary for rescued cats who, for reasons of age, health, or behavioral issues, are not considered adoptable to members of the general public. The mission of this organization is to provide sheltering, veterinary care and loving attention to these cats as they live out their lives in the safety of our sanctuary.

Tuxedo Junction Rescue will consider making the cats listed on available for adoption to experienced adopters who are willing and able to devote the time, effort and expense of a lifetime commitment to care for a special needs cat.

We are a non-profit, tax-deductible 501(c)(3) charity and are supported entirely by donations.

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.

Come Meet Our Pets...

You are always welcome to make an appointment to 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!
