River (black and white cat in photo) is estimated to have been born in 2008. He came to the farm in 2010 after he showed up as a stray in our nature sanctuary and was caught in a humane trap. There were several cats who were found in our nature sanctuary that same week and one of them was Marvin. They were caught separately and a few days apart but when they found each other once safely inside, they literally ran to one another and began grooming each other. Obviously, they knew one another. We assume someone dumped a whole group of cats off together. River and Marvin are inseparable. They are both a bit on the shy side and never showed well to potential adopters. But once they settle in and get to know you, they are actually quite friendly cats. They live together in one of our cat rooms and are very happy just to be together. The two of them will get to live the rest of their lives together just as they want. They make it very obvious how important that is to them.
