This week's Featured Furry Friend is an 8 year old Tortie named Riz. She came to the APL because she was afraid of the small children in her former home. She was nervous and shy when she first arrived at the APL, but attention and love from the staff and volunteers has help her break out of her shell. She gets along with other cats, and once she gets to know you even likes to snuggle. She is still fearful around small kids, so her first choice would be older kids or adults only in the house. To learn more about Riz, call the APL at 216-771-4616 or log on to Cleveland APL.org. Check back next week for another Featured Furry Friend from the Cleveland APL!
