River was caught when she was with a feral colony, but she’s definitely not feral.
She’s currently in a foster home and, although she’s shy, she gets along well with the other cats. She needs someone who is patient and will help her come out of her shell.
She’s about two years old, spayed, and vaccinated. Her adoption fee is $175.
