Facts about Rio

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
My name is Rio and I was rescued from a kill shelter shortly before I was about to be put down. I was dumped there because I didn’t do well with the kids in my household, and I’m not so good with dogs, either, but, with adult humans, I’m a great cat. I am now safe in a foster home and am available for adoption through Kitty Connection.

I am an even mix of brown tabby and white and have an endearing pink nose. I’ve got loads of personality and like to be snuggle, play, and be pet, and once in a while I just need my space, but don’t we all? Once I realize I’m your cat, though, I’ll follow you around and show you other signs of devotion. I really am a treasure who deserves a second chance at a life with a truly loving family.

Us cats can live up to 20 years, so please give careful thought to the changes that are likely to occur in your life during that time. If you can and will commit to provide me with a safe, loving home for the rest of my life, then email my foster dad, Roy, at:

About Kitty Connection

About Our Rescue Group...

Our volunteers are a group of individuals dedicated to the rescue of unwanted animals and educating our community on the importance of spaying and neutering their animals in order to stop the over population of unwanted domestic pets; primarily kittens and cats.

Our goal is to provide the public with resources on being responsible pet owners and the proper care necessary to have a healthy and happy pet. We rescue disadvantaged cats in the hope of finding them "Forever Homes."

Please visit out website to view adoption times and locations. If you cannot make it it one of our adoptions please call us at 781-393-9995 or email us and someone will get back to you with an appointment to meet the kitty that's waiting for you!

Adoption is by appointment only. Unless published through the web or on our web page.

Our Adoption Process...

We require all adopters to fill out a pre adoption application to help match you with a cat that is compatible for you and your family.

A. If you own your home, you must provide evidence of ownership in the form of a copy of your water bill or your real estate tax bill.

B. If you rent your home or apartment, you must provide a copy of your lease showing that pets are allowed, or you must have a written letter signed by your landlord stating that pets are allowed
