Gentle, Friendly, Playful

Riley is a petite and gorgeous, orange and brown tabby who likes to announce her presence. She will enter a room with gentle, plaintive meows - just so you know she's arrived!

Riley is friendly and sociable, but she's not all lovey-dovey. She doesn't like being held. But, if you're willing to sit perfectly still, we're talking don't move a muscle, she will grace your lap with her lovely presence. She likes to be touched on her own terms and will emphatically request a few strokes on occasion, so be ready to pet on demand! She does like spending time with her humans though. You'll usually find her daintily sitting or leisurely lounging in your vicinity. You can't help but notice that her gentle presence always seems to give you an extra cozy feeling.

It's possible that Riley is part dog because she just loves to play fetch! Speaking of canines, Riley does well with the calm pup in her foster home, coexisting comfortably; they basically ignore each other. Which is fine with Riley, because she doesn't have time for drama! Cats are another story. She intensely dislikes them! So, she would need to be your one and only kitty.

Riley would do well in a relaxed home where she can spend time near her people, have thought-provoking chats with them and play with her toys. She would be the perfect cat for someone who is looking for a fun kitty who is friendly and sweet, but who doesn't tend to get all touchy feely.

Ready to start living the life of Riley? This sweetheart is sure to make it happen! Contact us to meet her today!

Riley has tested positive for FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus). FeLV cats have a virus that causes a weaker immune system - they do not have cancer! For the most part, felvies are just like any other cat. You could not pick one out of the crowd, and they generally do not require much additional care. As a bonus, we waive their adoption fees! APA! provides full coverage and treatment for any FeLV-related issues that arise after the time of adoption. Cats with FeLV typically have a shortened lifespan - we like to compare it to the lifespan of adopting a senior kitty, with the added benefit that they don't have chronic senior health problems, and that FeLV related medical care is covered. Riley is not contagious to people, dogs or other animals, but should live only with other FeLV+ cats. For more information, please contact APA! or read more by our Partner, Best Friends Animal Society: http://bit.ly/2FwYCxR

All APA! cats are fully vetted, spayed or neutered, and have updated vaccines and a microchip. Lifetime support is offered by our Cat Behavior Team.
