Our Featured Cat...
Maya


Featured Independence Day

MAYA is a "big girl" now!

 

She came to FFF through our S.O.L Program for at risk cats / kittens. (see her S.O.L. story below). Named because of her resilence after Maya Angelou, she has grown from a sickly, shy kitty, to a plucky, active and independent girl.

 

She rips and wrestles when she is the mood with her foster "brother", Beau. But often seeks out her quiet place to observe. She is a calm girl and bestows her attention on the human of her choice. She holds her own in the mix of rowdy foster "brothers" but prefers a quiet place to enjoy and observe.

 

She most likely would do best in an adult home or home with older responsible children..and perhaps a friendly other kitty close to her age. She learned to accommodate a small, rowdy dog in her foster home. MAYA is ready for her next adventure ...and a safe, loving and forever home.

 

 

Maya ThumbIt started with a phone call from a good Samaritan The caller claimed there was a small few days old kitten left on a pile of wood in her back yard. She had monitored it to see if Mama cat returned for it She never returned !

 

The kitten had been without nursing for over 24 hours !!!!

FFF immediately arranged for the kitten to be brought to us and get immediate vet care.It didn't look good ...and the odds were against her.!

 

Our wonderful foster specialist , Susan, immediately took over the round the clock bottle feeding of this kitten.

 

Slowly, despite all odds and with emergency medical interventions , the kitten began to stabilize and then to grow.....and then to walk !

 

Today , she continues to nurse voraciously , roll around with a foster brother.. .and RISE! We named her after MAYA ANGELOU,..because despite all odds , she RISES !

 

We expect our MAYA to continue her Rise ....and continue her progress until she can become a healthy , and active kitten.....and be ready for that special home who can appreciate her struggle and give her a forever home .

Ages of our cats and kittens are approximate and may reflect the age
at which the cat entered F.F.F.'s Program.
F.F.F. makes every effort to update the ages of our cats periodically.

When inquiring regarding one of our cats, please ask regarding the current age.

F.F.F. Policies


Adopting a Friend

An interview, application and home visit is required, followed by a 5-7 day trial visit of the selected pet in the prospective adoptive home. At the end of the trial period, FFF will evaluate the trial visit and determine the suitability for adoption. If deemed necessary by FFF, a final home visit is required. An Animal Care Adoption Contract is required to be signed by the adopter and a legal FFF representative, upon final FFF approval. The adopter(s) must be of legal age to sign a legal contract.

FFF does NOT allow FFF animals to be given as gifts or adopted for third parties.

FFF would appreciate a contribution to help offset our veterinary costs which include:

  • Combo test for FeLV and FIV (feline leukemia and feline AIDS)
  • First FVRCP
  • Spay or Neuter
  • Pain medications for recovery
  • De-worming
  • Flea control
  • Microchip

Special circumstance adoptions are available for eligible adopters.

Micro-Chipping

In an effort to provide our F.F.F. graduates, their families, and our dedicated F.F.F. fosters/staff with peace of mind, we have begun micro chipping all of our adoptees. This will provide a safety net for our formerly friendless felines that go on to their new homes.

F.F.F. is listed as the secondary contact in the event that an emergency or unforeseen circumstance causes them to be lost, stolen or strayed. This should make sure that our F.F.F. adoptees will always have a friend if they are in need and always be "formerly friendless".

Appointments

We show our cats by appointments in the evenings during the work week, either at our adoption site, or your home. Appointments can be made with Sally through our HAVE CAT WILL TRAVEL Program. Availability of the cats or kittens for appointment depends on the availability of the foster and transportation arrangements. If you see a cat or kitten you are interested in on our website, contact Sally via our email or by phone to check on the availability of that cat or kitten for evening appointments.

Adoption Criteria

As a rule, F.F.F. does not offer kittens below twelve-to-fourteen weeks of age for adoption. All F.F.F. cats and kittens are combo tested for feline AIDS and feline Leukemia prior to adoption. Our veterinarians have advised us that the testing for these diseases is not accurate or dependable below twelve-to-fourteen weeks of age. Therefore, we will not release any cat or kitten for adoption until we can be assured of an accurate test result.

It is F.F.F.'s philosophy that we will not knowingly adopt any cat or kitten into your home that we wouldn't place in our own homes. We appreciate your understanding.
