FFF has left the Lafayette Pet Shoppe due to the store's closing.

FFF will continue private showings/appointments through our HAVE CAT WILL TRAVEL PROGRAM to show our "Formerly Friendless Felines" until we can secure another monthly adoption site to be able "meet and meow" with our public.


We will be holding a series of SPECIAL ADOPTION EVENTS.

Andy, Charlotte & Stella...

Stella, Andy, Charlotte L-R

Stella, Andy & Charlotte


STELLA is a shy, beautiful tortie girl.  She is at first reticent with strangers, preferring to hide behind sister, Charlotte or her brother, Andy.


She is starting to gain more confidence and becoming more accepting of human affection. She cries when separated from her siblings currently so we would prefer and hope she might be adopted together with one of her siblings. However, depending on the home circumstances, and other pets, we would consider other possibilities.
STELLA is becoming more active and playful as she gains strength and confidence. She was the smallest of the litter but is growing and gaining weight.


With patience and love, STELLA should become a loving feline family member and perhaps companion/ playmate for a friendly, non-aggressive young feline friend.


This kitten is approx 10 weeks of age, negative for Feline Aids and Leukemia, up to date on FVRCP, dewormed and current on flea control.


ANDY is an easy going, affable little guy. He is loving, playful, and a willing follower, preferring to let sister, CHARLOTTE, initiate the "adventure". He is a comforting figure for shy sister, STELLA, but has his own quiet personality. He was named after actor, Andy Griffith, because of his easy going and "good fellow" personality.

He is a "bubba" kitty preferring to observe and amble into things if they interest him.  His beautiful taffy colored fur is a bit fuzzy so he gives the appearance of a rumpled with a perpetual "bad hair day".


ANDY would make a good companion and support for his sister STELLA or another shy kitty who needs brotherly reassurance.


This kitten is approx 10 weeks of age, negative for Feline Aids and Leukemia, up to date on FVRCP, dewormed and current on flea control.


CHARLOTTE, a beautiful, plucky, adventurous calico, is a natural born leader and " explorer". She was the first to organize a " breakout" of their temporary surroundings to lead brother, ANDY and shy sister, STELLA on an adventure into my closet! ...3 times! In short, CHARLOTTE is the "Norma Rae" of the group.
She is an independent but loving fearless leader that would delight any family and/ or person to welcome into their home and heart(s).
She and siblings were rescued from an at risk situation by a kind workman and his wife, longtime supporters of FFF, who took loving care of them until FFF could take over. It was with heavy hearts that they gave them up for adoption.


We hope to try to adopt at least two of them together, although CHARLOTTE, would most likely adjust the best to a household with a friendly, playful other young cat if not adopted with a sibling.


This kitten is approx 10 weeks of age, negative for Feline Aids and Leukemia, up to date on FVRCP, dewormed and current on flea control.

If you would like to meet any of the animals listed on the FFF or Petfinder sites,

you can contact Sally.

Our critters are sorted alphabetically as follows:

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.

Rheem Valley Pet Shoppe


Come join us at the Rheem Valley Pet Shoppe for an Adoption Weekend. The nice people at Rheem Valley Pet Shoppe have invited us to bring our Formerly Friendless Felines to "Meet and Meow" with you, along with our Featured Pet.



BOARDING is available for fish and small animals. Check the store for rates - (925) 376-8399


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.


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".


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.
