Pet of the Week

  • May 2, 2016 at 8:51AM

That's me – Ricky. I'm the handsome tabby fellow shown here with Nanette, one of my many girlfriends at the San Juan Island animal shelter. I suppose I'm what you might call a "chick magnet." I don't know how to explain it – they just can't get enough of me. I guess it might be because of my gentle, suave demeanor. Or maybe it's my soulful eyes and rugged good looks. Here at the animal shelter they call me "The Ambassador" because the other cats like me so much. Truth is, I like them too. The problem is, I've been here for a couple of years now … way too long. I was hoping someone like you might be interested in giving me a real forever home. I'm pretty sure you'll like me. Everyone else seems to!
