Friends for Life Animal Rescue

Due to COVID-19 and the status of our outreach volunteers either being at risk themselves or having loved ones at risk, we are cancelling outreach for the summer and will reevalaute in August. We are still doing adoptions on an individual basis with as little contact as possible (application completed ahead of time).
This is extremely hard on a small nonprofit, as it is on the entire community. It is our sincere hope that people do what is needed to stay safe and in time, our hope that people will again want to look at kitties for adoption. Their reproductive and surrender cycle doesn't match our needs!

River is a shy, gentle, very sweet , approximately 5 month old male. He was trapped in July by his current foster parents, living in some berry bushes with his three brothers. He has made so much progress in the 1.5 months that he has been with them! River is looking for a forever home that can continue working on building his confidence and socialization with people and a home with another cat or kitten friend to show him the ropes! River's three other brothers have much louder personalities than he does, so he does tend to linger in the background a bit. River relies on his brothers a lot and would bond more with his adopters not having them to lean on. He is very, very submissive to other cats and just does not want any trouble, he is SUCH a darling and extremely respectful with our older cats. River will approach us to play, take treats and he does snuggle at night but is still slowly learning to like being touched. He's an adorable little gem that just needs some love and patience to shine. He keeps his distance, but does not seem to mind our older, mellow dog. He likely would not do well with energetic, loud dogs or young children. He has done very well scratching only on his cardboard cat scratcher and uses the litter box like a pro!
River's ideal home : Needs a cat friend, shy cat savvy adopters, calm and predictable household, indoor only, no declawing, no young children.
Traits : Gentle, quiet, playful, treat motivated, shy but sweet natured, great companion for another cat or kitten.
