Ricky's life is fear. He curls himself up in a ball and is terrified of the world and people. We have continually worked with Ricky, holding him, talking to him and trying to play with him for 5 months and he has continued to live in a state of fear. Ricky's life before coming to the shelter is unknown and we can only cuddle him and hope one day he will forgive people as he must of encountered terrifying things before being brought in. Ricky is not aggressive, he curls up in your arms and wants to hide. Ricky is a "project cat" but we have hope that someone out there will want to create a bond with Ricky and be the one who will break him from his shell.
Ricky truly needs our help to find him an adopter. He is currently in our cat sanctuary where we start cats out at first in wire kennels to acclimate. Ricky does not like to leave the safety and security of his kennel except to eat and use the litterbox in the middle of the night. He enjoys the company of his buddy Neptune, who will come back to him and snooze at Ricky's side. Ricky is a sad story that we see time and time again at our shelter. Abandoned, abused and neglected innocent souls of Madison County.
Please help Ricky...
