Rico - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Cat

Adopted from Petfinder, Petfinder, OK.

We got our beautiful Rico 5 years ago when he was 9. He had been taken to open admission shelter in Oklahoma City after his owner went into a nursing home and was about to be euthanized when a shelter employee called a friend to come get and foster him. We found him on Petfinder a few days later and we are so grateful for the shelter worker finding him a foster so he could be part of our family. We can't imagine life without him, he's the sweetest most wonderful baby, we couldn't imagine being without our "big fuzzy".. Thank you Petfinder for giving us a cherished family member!
