Plenty of Pets

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.

To learn more about River, contact Carma Cat Rescue’s Colchester chapter at colchestercarma@gmail.com or 902-957-8677.

If you’re a yard sale fan, don’t forget Carma’s indoor sale on Saturday. It will be at the Onslow Community Centre, 12391 Hwy 2, in Lower Onslow, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
