Meet Rico, an adorable and gentle 8 year old cat seeking a home who can handle all his cuteness!

Rico is the perfect mix of sassy, sweet, playful and independent. He will keep you laughing with his kitten-like antics: often you can see him chasing a crinkle toy or running in circles after a wand toy. He'll do most anything for a treat and enjoys perching quietly next to you or napping in a sunny spot.

Rico is working on enjoying pets and so far is a big fan of slow strokes along his forehead and nose - his foster is seeing improvement in his confidence each day! When he doesn't want to be pet, he will very slowly raise a paw in pre-swat as if to say "no thank you.

Rico doesn't take long to warm up and will explore his new space right away - he is quite the explorer. He is quiet and well-behaved and his little tongue often makes an appearance in the cutest way (see photos). He even gets along well with other cats. The only thing this perfect kitty is missing is a home to call his own!

Rico is currently on a special diet to manage his low-grade kidney disease but it doesn't slow him down.

This wonderful boy is currently in foster care and available to meet you via virtual meet and greet. Please contact fosternyc@bestfriends.org for any questions!
