Facts about Riley

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
I’m Riley, a classic tabby with nice spiral markings and big green eyes. I came to the shelter because I was being picked on by other cats in my previous home. I’m a lover not a fighter and would like to have a house where I don’t have to deal with pushy cats or small children.

I love the outdoors and spend my days staring out the window dreaming of the adventures we could have together. I have my own leash and harness so I can join you on walks, hikes, camping or RVing. If the going gets tough I can climb in my carrier to ride or roll along. I’m a petite 8 lbs. so I wouldn’t much to carry. Come see how I love to ride in my backpack!

I enjoy hunting bugs and could spend all day chasing grasshoppers. After a day of adventures, I would love to curl up in your lap and enjoy some quiet time.

It would be wonderful if your home had a catio where I could enjoy the sun and smells of the outdoors. I have some requests for my litter box set up but nothing too difficult. My adoption comes with a consultation with a feline behaviorist to help arrange things so we get off to a great start.

The people here are very good to me but I’ve been waiting for a real home for way too long. I know there is a purrfect match for me. If you admire those cats on the internet that post pictures of their outdoor excursions, then you should come meet me.

At only about 3 years old, I still love to play and romp when I get the chance. You can bring me home for $80. My adoption comes with my negative virus test, microchip, spay, vaccinations, food & litter starter kit and a free vet visit voucher. Come visit me and I’ll show you my special adventure buddy skills!

About Happy Cats Haven

About Our Shelter...

At Happy Cats Haven, we take in homeless Colorado cats and kittens and find them new, forever homes. We give our cats the gift of time: time to recover from the trauma of losing their homes and time to show their true personalities. All cats stay here until they are adopted, unless too ill to survive.

Each adoption is hand-crafted, matching our deep understanding of each cat with the adopters' needs and family members for the perfect match. Adopters also have all the time they need in our comfy colonies to get to know our kitties.

Our ongoing support with classes and online advice continues long past adoption. We have found forever families for over 1,400 cats and kittens since 2011!

All our funding comes from private individuals and grants. Eighty-seven percent of all money we raise goes directly to making sure every cat and kitten is healthy, happy and adoptable. For every full-time equivalent staff member, we saved over 160 cats and kittens in 2015. This was made possible by all of our dedicated, loving volunteers.

We are a 501(c)3 organization, so your donation is fully tax-deductible. If you would like to help us continue our good work, you can go to our website and click on the Help Us tab. The volunteers and kitties thank you!
