Buster's Emergency Medical Fund


Buster is a gorgeous big, black cat that lives in a small feral colony. He was attacked by an unaltered male, resulting in a large gash that became badly infected. After much effort Buster was finally trapped, treated and returned to his colony, thus escaping a slow, painful death.

We at Forgotten Felines are happy and relieved to have saved him!

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to help defray the enormous expenses incurred to save this handsome big boy!

We need to be ready for the next little one needing our help.  We can't express enough how appreciative we are of all the help you have given our kitties over the past year! PURRS!

Lucy and Her Kittens – Austin & Vegas
Lucy, Austin and Vegas

Gorgeous Lucy (left) and her beautiful red kittens, Austin and Vegas, were rescued from a nasty drug situation in 2010. Our own JoEllen ended up keeping Lucy and every Christmas we receive an update from the lovely family that adopted the two boys!

Christmas 2014 Austin & Vegas Update:
We love the boys. They are the best cats you could ever wish for. They sleep on my daughter’s bed every night, and really are her cats. Austin hears the school bus every day and runs to the front door to greet her. Right now they are curled up on the sofa next to me purring away. They’re always together. I’m so happy we took them both!
 
Tinsel

Tinsel is doing beautifully. She has become completely acclimated to my home and she loves her new family. She is quite lovable, constantly giving kisses and cuddling with everyone. She has even convinced my older cat to become her very close pal.

She has completely shown us that she was made to be our cat. Her playful tactics and loving disposition have made her the perfect addition to our family.
 
Lulu (formerly Kip)
Excerpt from Lulu’s Diaries:

Hi – just wanted to give you an update! I am so happy with my family! They give me lots of love and play with me all the time AND I get all the food and treats I want. Thank you for finding me my wonderful humans. Happy Thanksgiving! ~Love, Lulu

It’s me Lulu again in my Santa hat wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Christmas day will make it two months with my new family. Life is wonderful! I love being spoiled. Got to get this silly hat off now. ~Love, Lulu
 
Smudge

This kitten was found in a trash can. When we went to Petco to adopt her out to a family, all these firemen came to welcome the kitten into her new family as her new daddy is the captain. We had named her Tricia because she came from a trash can. They renamed her Smudge.
 
Update:
Just sending a quick hello and update. Smudge is doing fantastic! She had her surgery (spay) this past Tuesday and is doing well. She was sore and scared but is doing much better. Started chasing her tail again today :-) ~Karen and Family
 
Cappuccino & Latte

We want to thank Forgotten Felines and especially Ann, from the bottom of our hearts! We adopted two white kittens on July 26, 2014 and it has been a pure joy! I have been a cat lover ever since I was a little kid. I have had many cats over the years but I’ve never had two such like these! I remember when I first spoke to Ann on the phone, I couldn’t wait to come meet the kittens, the whole experience was awesome! Ann was so friendly and warm, and as soon as I saw the kittens I knew that they had to be mine!
It has been a roller coaster the last few months, Cappuccino and Latte are the two sweetest kittens I have ever had but can be the most mischievous at the same time, they have finally settled into their new home and are doing very well despite that they came to a home with 2 other cats and a nine year old child! My daughter is absolutely in love with them and can’t hug them enough! From following us around the house, to unraveling the toilet paper roll all over the house, it’s a lot of hard work but its well worth it!! I couldn’t imagine not having them in my home now and not to mention the sandpaper kisses! ~XOXO Larissa & Kaylee

Featured Pet - Timmie!

TIMMIE is a sweet, lovable, 1 1/2 year old boy who is looking for a family of his very own. Santa, being so busy and all,  forgot about him last year and he so much hopes it doesn't happen again this year!

Timmie and his littermates were saved from euthanasia with only hours to spare by caring people who knew how precious these kittens were even though they tested positive for the FIV virus.  His siblings soon turned negative and were adopted,  leaving Timmie behind and wondering, "Why Not Me? " Timmie never turned negative but he is perfectly healthy and should live a healthy, happy and long life.

FIV is not HIV and all it means is that his immune system is somewhat compromised and therefore he may be more sensitive to colds, infections, etc. With prompt treatment, he should be fine again. Actually, Timmie has never been sick at all.  FIV is not contagious to people or dogs- only to cats through a deep bite wound.  He can be with other cats as long as he is introduced properly and there is no fighting.

You can read more about  FIV here. Timmie is neutered, micro-chipped, feline leukemia negative and all set to go to spend the holidays with you and forever. If interested in adopting this really great fella, please check out Timmie on PetFinder!
