Wanted: A loving home for a sweet 15 year old male cat named Riley. Featured on the left with his buddy Skye.

Facts about Riley: Neutered male, orange and white. Health conditions include heart murmur, early stage kidney failure that cannot be treated with fluids due to the heart murmur. Severe gingivitis that will not be treated due to the risk to the heart that would be caused by anesthesia. Current medications and treatments, zero. He presents as completely healthy, aware and alert.

Conditions for adoption: There must be no dogs and preferably no other cats though he would get along with cats who would be nice to him. Riley comes with a person, me, John Mills. I would need to be allowed to visit him often and remain in his life. He has been an indoor/outdoor cat his whole life. He would need to have outdoor access in a place not near a big street. He used to be quite the roamer but in his old age he has stayed near the house. Must be in the Ithaca area, though outside of the city might be better. Must be in Tompkins County.

Bonus: In exchange for giving him a loving home, I would provide free house and cat-sitting for the remainder of his life, which I have been doing around Ithaca for decades, and I come with references and glowing recommendations. I would also pay all his medical bills and vet visits. My estimate of his life expectancy is 2-3 years. I am not allowed to have a cat in my building or I would have taken him in.

Background: He was surrendered to the SPCA on February 1st for indoor spraying we believe was specific to his house, and the addition of a new young canine housemate. Rescued from the SPCA six days later, he is being boarded at a vet's until a home can be found. He has not sprayed or peed out of the box since leaving his original home.

Do you have some love for Riley?
