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?
