Rio is a handsome, but very shy, long furred male cat.

Rio is a long-furred black and white tuxedo cat. His litter mates (Ringo, Silver and T.J.) were caught in a volunteer’s yard and brought to The Buddy Foundation in October 2012 and have since been adopted. Rio eluded capture until January 2013, thereby missing his much needed socialization time, which probably accounts for his extreme shyness. He’s an exceptionally handsome - almost regal cat. He is not at all aggressive, but it will take some time before he warms up to anyone he doesn’t know. Rio can be found in room #2. Perhaps you’re that special person to bring Rio out of his shell!
