“Ricky is a shy older gentleman who would love nothing more than to have a quiet place to spend his golden years. Ricky’s previous owner passed away in March, and he’s really hoping to find his new home in time for the holidays! The right family for Ricky will understand that he needs some time to get used to a new home. Ricky will probably spend the first week or two under your bed but soon enough, he will be curling up next to you on the couch! Despite having only three teeth left, Ricky won’t let you get away with serving his dinner late. He’ll meow to get your attention and then chow down like a kitty half his age! Ricky loves being cradled like a baby and brushed. He is a champion biscuit-maker and will purr so contentedly he drools a little! This guy is one of his foster mom’s all-time favorites and she would love to have you over to meet him. Please email Ricky’s foster at [email protected] to arrange a visit! ****As an added bonus, if you’re over the age of 50, Ricky’s adoption fee is waived as part of Humane Rescue Alliance’s Boomer’s Buddies program! ****”

Sherlock is a sweet and funny four year old kitty who is a great companion. Ear scratches? Yes, please. Sherlock often seeks the comfort and reassurance from her human and is pretty laid back. Though shy at first, Sherlock is very inquisitive after she gets accustomed to her surroundings. Sherlock is a team player – she will gladly help you finish your salmon dinner. This funny gal likes to play, bird watch and eat, but loves the company of her human most of all. She’s easily entertained with paper bags and boxes. Really anything can be a toy if you’re as creative of a cat as Sherlock! Sherlock does not love other cats and would do best in a home where she can be the only kitty. This special gal came into foster care from the shelter because of a suspected skin allergy that required treatment. She has undergone allergy testing and is on the right track to being itch free! Still, she’ll need to go to a home where her new family will continue her on her allergy regimen. She has been a champ through it all and is waiting for your special, forever home. Please contact foster mom Kristen at [email protected] for more information or to set up a “meet and greet and adopt” for Sherlock!

Both Ricky and Sherlock are featured on www.humanerescuealliance.org, under Cats – Foster Homes. You can see more photos of them there!
