Rico Suave - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Cat

Adopted from Springfield Humane Society Inc., Springfield, VT.

Rico, whose shelter name was Gideon, was too friendly to believe. Over the course of the month I visited the shelter to be chosen by a cat, he would climb onto my shoulder and hold on with all his might.

I couldn't NOT bring him home.
