Meow! My name is RIKKI
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Orange Or Red Tabby||Age:||Senior|
I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Rikki is a big lovely orange tabby in search of a new home to live out his twilight years. Rikki lived his life so far in a home with only a female human companion — a loving caretaker who passed away in early 2012. He has been through a difficult transition but with patience and attention, he is getting more comfortable every day. Rikki is currently adjusting well to a foster home with more people (two) and other animals (cat and dog). He taps into his inner kitten with a good cat nip toy and plays interactively with a feather duster cat toy. Rikki LOVES to be brushed and rub his face on rough surfaces like cardboard scratching boxes. While still a bit timid/shy, Rikki is also alert and playful and we believe he would do well in quiet home with another adult or two and perhaps another passive cat or very calm dog. We estimate he was born February 2, 1999. Bio# 3213 KB

Rescue Group Info...
ICRA is an all volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to reducing the suffering of the abandoned cat population of Alameda and Oakland, and to educate people to their plight. We provide foster homes for our rescues until we can place them into loving homes through our adoption program. On a limited basis, we humanely trap feral cats in order to spay/neuter them before releasing them back to their colonies. Our goal is to expand our program for maintaining cat colonies in our communities. To make this expansion possible, we need more volunteers.
Adoptions are hosted at PETCO, 2310 S. Shore Center, in Alameda's South Shore Center, every Saturday from —
11 am to 4:00 pm
No cats show on major holiday weekends.
Enter the store, head to the right past the registers and straight ahead to the far wall of the store.There is a door there where you will find our cats.

Potential adopters pick out a cat or kitten and fill out an application.
There will be a short interview with one of our volunteers. Adoptions do not happen the same day. We will arrange a time to visit your home and the foster parents and a volunteer will meet there. Our adoption fee structure is:
- Cats and kittens (six months to 8 years): $100
- Cats (over 8 years): $75
- Two cats: Full amount for the higher amount cat, half amount for the lower amount cat
For example: a kitten and an adult would be: $100 + $50 = $150
Prior to Adoption all cats and kittens are:
- Spayed or neutered
- FeLV and FIV tested
- FVRCP vaccinated
- De-wormed, and
- Treated for fleas with Advantage or Frontline
