Meet River!

Hi! My name is River and I'm

Available for adoption
Breed Domestic Shorthair/Mix
Gender Male
Age 13 years 3 months
Weight 7.3 lbs
Available Since May 12, 2022

River was adopted from us in 2009 as a kitten and returned almost 12yrs later because he was no longer getting along with the other cat in the home. His owners did bring him to several vets trying to determine if there was a medical reason he was acting out. Unfortunately they were not able to find an answer medically so he was surrendered to us.
Recently, we had a woman come in to meet River because she had adopted one of his siblings back in 2009 and her cat had passed from stomach cancer. Since River has been with us, he has had GI issues that we have been unable to figure out. He has to eat Science Diet I/D to maintain somewhat normal bowel movements but still struggles with occasional bouts of diarrhea and vomiting. Otherwise, he is a very happy cat. River likes to be pet and play with toys, he loves to be with people and even likes dogs! After meeting with our shelter vet, running blood tests, and discussing quality of life, we have determined that our options are limited. The most important thing is to keep him comfortable but how?
River has spent most of his time here in a cat condo which is fine for the average cat under normal circumstances but these aren’t normal circumstances. Over the weekend, we received an entire living room set from very generous donors. This has allowed us to create a mock living room, now known as River’s Room, in the admin section of the shelter. He remains a happy, playful cat with a good appetite and lots of love to give.

Think you and River

Might be a good fit?
