Mindy Rickard Obituary




September 9, 2023


Hanover, PA

Our thoughts go out to April and Jason Rickard on the death of Mindy, their 14 year old domestic shorthair cat. Adopted as a four year old, Mindy immediately bonded with April and the two shared a lifelong connection. Mindy was a sweet, loving girl, with just a hint of sass! She would always be underfoot, and since she blended in so well to the carpet the family had to watch where they were stepping. She loved food of any kind, and would run whenever she heard a can being opened. Her favorite was chicken, and she turned into a "lank shark" when she was offered it. Even though she only had three legs, Mindy had a big heart and an even bigger personality. Her sweet spirit and companionship will be missed. To to the family or in memory of Mindy Rickard, please
