A cat who has made the leap from shelter to stardom, Lucy Pet Products‘ Ricky the Rescue Cat is a kitty who is using his fame to both entertain his fans and help his fellow four-legged friends. Ricky serves as the Feline Ambassador of Good Will for Lucy Pet Products including Cats Incredible Litter as well as The Lucy Pet Foundation, which provides spay/neuter services for thousands of cats and dogs every year. Here’s a look at the cat behind the feline face of Lucy Pet Products.
Tackling the topic of pet homelessness, Ricky (who was adopted from the SEAACA Animal Shelter) suited up for a starring role in Lucy Pet Products’ Lucy Bowl adoption ad, which ran during the 2015 edition of the Kitten Bowl on The Hallmark Channel:
Ricky trained diligently for his big moment in the commercial:
Using his high-profile status as a platform to help paws causes, Ricky reminds pet parents of Lucy Pet Foundation’s spay/neuter services. (Hoping to lower the euthanasia rate from coast to coast, The Lucy Pet Foundation is working toward the goal of having at least 40 mobile spay/neuter and adoption vehicles!)
While a team of totally tubular tail-waggers rode the waves on the Lucy Pet Products’ entry in the 2017 Tournament of Rose Parade, Ricky waved to the crowd as the beachside paradise-themed float made its way into the Guinness Book of World Records! Ever the purrfessional, Ricky practiced his appearance on the longest and heaviest float in the world alongside fellow Instagram sensation, the pro surfing Spot Coppertone Surf Dog:
Always ready to lend a helping hand (…er, paw) to help his fellow four-legged friends, Ricky starred in a segment of The Hallmark Channel show Home and Family with celebrity veterinarian Karen “Doc” Halligan:
Groomed for a life in the limelight, Lucy Pet Products spokescat Ricky takes great pride in his appearance, and he’s happy to tell animal lovers about the natural ingredients in Lucy Pet Products’ cruelty-free Blue Lightning shampoo and conditioner that tames his ‘mane’ so he’s always ready to strike a pose for the paPURRazzi…
…and that the litterbox he steps into is filled with Cats Incredible cat litter:
