I'm wondering how long a kitty with a URI is contagious? We have a sick rescue kitty and I need to know when it would be safe to bring him home without his cold spreading to Riley.

Probably yes. Because some cats are strong enough to keep it at bay & never show symptoms....but they still techincally have a URI. Commonly, if one kitty in a cage has a URI, we treat them all in case the others have it & aren't showing symptoms or else they just pass it around. In theory, a kitty with a healthy immune system shouldn't be able to get a URI.
