Rico is a lovable, lazy, cuddly short-hair domestic. He is declawed but still has teeth and will not hesitate to nibble on your feet or attack your hair. He craves attention, which results in minor attacks. However, he enjoys sleeping by your feet, your stomach, or even on your face. In the past, he suffered a severe case of Lower Urinary Tract Disease, which requires him to eat specific food. Overall, Rico will make an amazing companion if he is only animal in the house.

If you believe you have room in your home for this kitty, please call Leticia Maria Carlos or (847) 368-1556, or Arlene Carlos at (847) 346-5443.
