Family Fun Leads to Fun For All

Lee Oman captured this photo of Ricky cleverly concealed behind a wheelbarrow as a bit of fun for his family. As Lee shared with Newsweek, the image was initially intended as a playful challenge for his partner and daughter, unaware of the Twitter account at the time. His partner introduced him to it later on.

Lee also noted that Ricky doesn’t typically engage in stealthy behavior, suggesting the hiding may not have been intentional. Nonetheless, Ricky’s ability to vanish from sight has captured the fascination of over 6,000 cat enthusiasts, all eager to spot him. Yet, with just a sliver of a tail visible, many followers voiced their frustration in trying to find him.

Ricky, undoubtedly, must be feeling quite smug about his newfound fame for being so elusive.
