My Story

Hi guys! My name is Ricardo and I am 100% lap cat. I start purring instantly when I climb into your lap. I was born May 22, 2018. Did I mention that I LOVE other cats? I immediately try to become best friends with all new cats that I meet. I love to be held and will rub my face all over yours to show appreciation! I'm still a shy guy with new people and new places, but having other confident adult cats around really helps me come out of my shell faster. I would do best in a quiet home with other cats. Do you need a snuggly lap cat that will also be best friends with your other cats? Well then, I'm your guy! Adoption fee: $100. Adopt a pair: $150. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchip and 30 days of free pet insurance.

Adoption Process: Complete the application at www.pawsforliferescue.org. We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.
