MONTANA - Adopted November, 2018

Thanks to the kindness of a good Samaritan and your support, we were able to rescue this amazing senior cat, nurse him back to good health, and give him a second chance after his owner died. It is especially heartwarming when an adopter comes to us and asks to meet our senior cats. She met Montana and was smitten. He has a lot of love left to give and we wish them the best! Please consider a senior when you are looking for your next cat.

We've been busy in 2018, as we promised we would, helping 240 cats and kittens so far this year. This included truly feral cats Trapped-Neutered-Returned (TNR'd) to their homes of origin, owners needing financial help caring for their cherished companions, traumatized and difficult cats Stamford Animal Control asked for help with, and, as always, homeless and otherwise good cats in bad circumstances. As the weather gets colder, we expect more.

We continue to partner with the community to support our adopted feral colonies by implementing humane TNR programs and by providing medical care and food in our neediest neighborhoods. See "Our West Side Story" for one example of our work with feral colonies this past year.

Beyond the numbers, it's been a year of heartwarming and heartbreaking stories. Good natured and lovable Buddy was surrendered to us with a badly broken foot and we were able to provide the medical attention he needed, then find him an excellent home. Link, a young kitten found in grave condition, recovered and is now full of spunk and available for adoption. We do our best to help every cat and kitten we take in, but sadly, we lost a few we had come to love.

We are extremely grateful for your support, our partners at Just Cats, our foster families, our adopters, and our volunteers. We could not have helped these very deserving cats without you!

Thanks to your donations, we were able to rescue these kitten siblings from the street and find them a loving home. These kittens will never have to face the challenges of living on the streets as a feral adult cat. Best wishes for a long and happy life with their new family!

Thanks to your donations, these kittens were rescued from the streets. While the kittens were boarding at Just Cats Veterinary Hospital, they met their new mom who is part of the Just Cats team. This sweet sibling pair convinced her to take them home. As you can see, they are doing well. We wish them many years of happiness together!!!

Thanks to your donations, we were able to get this gorgeous, gentle cat off the streets and into a loving home. Her adopter came in to meet another cat she had picked out online. But when she met Kitty Carlisle (KC), 2 cages down, she chose KC instead (or KC picked her!). Kitty Carlisle had been with us for about 10 months; so, we are THRILLED she now has her forever home. We wish them the best!!

Update on Fern (black & white) who was adopted earlier this year: Her new family reports she is doing well and enjoys the company of her new sibling Bobbi (also a FOF kitty). It is wonderful to see her enjoying life in her new home!!

Kiara and Vitani were just adopted by their foster family. Can you blame them for keeping these two darlings? This is the best possible outcome for these kittens and we could not be happier. We wish them a long and happy life with their family!
