Alaqua Animal Refuge furever friend of the week

Friendly calico a gentle gal

This fabulous face belongs to Ria, a big beautiful three year old calico cat who is a recent arrival at Alaqua Animal Refuge.  She keeps her white, black and orange coat impeccably groomed, and has a charming feline smile that is simply irresistible.  Sadly, Ria’s human mom had to leave her behind when a military transfer sent her overseas to Japan.  Ria is now hoping for a new special someone and a forever home.  She is extremely loving and gets along great with large dogs and with children.  In other words, Ria is as close to perfect as a cat can get.  She is sure to charm you with her warm welcome and her affectionate ways.  Along with her cat companions, she is waiting just for you, so do come and visit Ria in the far Cat Cabin at the peaceful ten acre sanctuary.  Sweet and gentle, she is sure to win your heart.

If you would like to adopt Ria or any of the other available friends, contact Alaqua Animal Refuge at 850-880-6399 or go online at
