MEET RIVER!

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 is currently working to gain some weight since she's now getting healthy, regular meals. She has a beautiful white and gray medium-length coat and gorgeous light eyes. 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 will shy away from being petted, but once she is given attention, does enjoy being petted and doted on! She does not have a mean bone in her body, just a few scaredy ones. River is great about using her letterbox and enjoys snuggling with her feline housemate. She is also currently living with a small child, though is shy. We're not sure if she has ever met a dog so would need a slow, appropriate introduction. She will need a patient but determined future family who will help her continue to come out of her shell and help her amazing personality shine through her lack of confidence. Could you be the one to help this amazing little lady?

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 www.cityofelderlylove.org to complete an online adoption questionnaire or email us at info@cityofelderlylove.org!
