While Ricky's daddy was walking on the trail he rescued him from being hurt by two very mean old ladies. He was only 6 months old and weighed 6 lbs. His Daddy brought him home and we took him to the vet that afternoon. We were told that he was a very nice kitty.....so he became our baby. He ate the best food the vet had and grew to be a 16 lb beautiful boy. He joined his sisters LucyBall and Ethel. Ethel and Ricky immediately became best friends. We have many videos of them playing and just being best friends....and tons of photos!!! |
He also had other sisters and brothers. His fur/featherkids were Norby (a one-lb. parrot that talks), Ginger & Fred (furkitties) & SammyJo & Doc (furkitties). He was blessed with three older people family.....Jake (who has Norby), Julie (who has Ginger & Fred) and Renee (who has SammyJo & Doc). Julie & Renee are identical twins and I am sure he was confused on who was who???
Ricky was a very happy little boy to have been rescused and adopted into a nice home with lots of cats to play with. I called him "My Little Spotted Cow" because of the markings on his one side. His tail had a 1" white tip and his pawpaws were all pink on the bottom. Actually Ricky was mostly white with black markings.
He passed on May 27, 2008, being ONLY 2-1/2 years old. He was MUCH too young to have been taken from us and we will never get over the fact that possibly we could have done more by taking him to another vet. We can't go back....just forward and do better for our other furbabies!
Ricky Ricardo Boesch, we miss you every day!
