Facts about RIVER!

  • Breed: Domestic Mediumhair
  • Color: White (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Medium

This beautiful and tiny lady is a part of a very special rescue for us. At around 5 years old, River was rescued along with over 50 other cats from a hoarding case in Philadelphia. Despite there being so many cats living in deplorable conditions, the cats were all relatively healthy despite some scrapes and scratches. River is now safe in a quiet foster home with one of her housemates/siblings and is looking for a forever home where she can forget her past!

River is very petite (weighs under 5 lbs!) and looks as though she will always look like a kitten. She has a beautiful white and gray medium-length coat. Because she and her housemates didn't have enough people to pay all of them attention, they are quite shy and her coat is still a little dingy. River has blossomed from being a bit shy to becoming our unofficial greeter at our Cat Adoption Center! While sometimes still a little shy in new situations, she does not have a mean bone in her body, just a few scaredy ones. River is great about using her litter box and enjoys snuggling with her feline housemate. We're not sure if she has ever met a dog so would need a slow, appropriate introduction. River developed a pretty nasty kitty cold during/after being rescued and ended up with some ocular scarring on her eyes as a result. Luckily, despite looking a little cloudy, she has no trouble seeing at all! River is more than ready to land her forever home and may just need a patient future family at first who will help her settle into her new home and match her amazing personality! Could you be the one to help this amazing little lady?

River is currently residing at our Cat Adoption Room at Dog Town, New Britain! You can meet her any day at 406 Town Center, New Britain, PA 18901!

River is available for adoption through City of Elderly Love. She is spayed and vaccinated and will be microchipped prior to going to her forever home. She is also FIV & FeLV negative. Interested in meeting her? Visit to complete an online adoption questionnaire or email us at!
