FIRST A SPONSOR...then a forever home?

Freddie Foreclosure - 2017-10-04 at 18-30-45.jpg

Freddie is a handsome cat with haunting green eyes, lovely blonde fur, and matched with a gentle spirit and a desire to be part of a family. And yet his last humans left him behind when they abandoned their foreclosed home....without food, without water, without telling anyone he was there.

Freddie survived for over a month and then Friends of Felines rescued him. Freddie is about three years old, neutered, fully vaccinated, and negative for feline viruses. He still needs some quiet love, time, and encouragement to eat. But we think he will quickly blossom into his true charming self.

Could you be his sponsor and forever-home hero? Give this big-hearted kitty a second chance and prove that a human family can be kind and loving.


We have so many happy, successful stories to share and to celebrate at our 5th Annual Silent Auction, but we'd like you to meet Squash, a not-so-happy story but the perfect poster kitten for why Trap-Neuter-Return is so vital. This tiny girl's brother sadly died while lying next to her overnight but we are doing everything we can to ensure Squash will grow into the beautiful calico she was meant to be. For now, she can barely open her eyes.

This very orange and calico neighborhood has been overrun with upper respiratory infections for generations. If we can trap, neuter, vaccinate and return the feral adults to this street, there'll no longer be kittens born here struggling to see or to breathe, and the adults will live peacefully without the heartbreak of caring for kittens who won't survive.


Seeing "lost cat" posters on poles and signs is very sad. We try to keep our cats safe, and hope it never happens to us, but sometimes a cat gets outside and becomes "lost." Here is a helpful website with steps to take when you have a lost cat. Click on lost cat to learn more.


artemis and kitts 2 - 2017-04-10 at 23-39-22.jpgOur March Madness had nothing to do with basketball. In collaboration with Stamford Animal Control, we took in 19 cats from an overcrowded home of 40 where most weren't neutered. On our first day we took in 12. The next day 3, the day after that, 4. The astounding number of polydactyl, beautifully-marked, intact toms and a few striking females overwhelmed us at first.
