Rita is new to the SPCA of Hancock County Shelter, and she is terrified!

For good reason too. This itsy bitsy, teeny weenie, tuxedo polka dotted kitty was found outside, covered in ticks.

Rita only weighs four pounds even though she is an adult cat. We cleaned her up and got rid of those nasty ticks, and now she’s ready for a new home!

Rita is still very scared, but she loves to be petted and is so gentle. She just needs a home where she feels safe and can stay indoors for the rest of her life.

She is happy to live with other cats, and is three years old. For more details of Rita’s story, check out our blog, the 4-Paw Post!
