I found Riley at the Multnomah County Animal Shelter adoption center in the Clackamas Town Center mall. When we first met, he climbed into my lap and fell asleep. Ultimately, I didn’t choose him, he choose me. Riley and I were together for over 16 years. Throughout that time he was a steadfast companion, a lover of naps, sunshine, cat nip, and snuggles. He would run to greet me every day when I came home after a long day at work. He would spend countless hours cuddled up on my lap. Riley loved head, neck, and chin scratches and his tail had a cute little bend right at the end. I will miss his very loud snoring, his stinky breath, his comforting purr, and his unconditional love. R.I.P. Riley.
A donation was made in Riley's memory and the memorial was created on April 29, 2018.
